You might have noticed I use Dina Wakley products, especially her stamps, quite a bit (make that a lot! LOL) and this tag is a homage to Ms Wakley, using three of her stamp sets.

I started by covering a #8 tag with part of a gelli print I'd made previously by layering stencils, printing with them, leaving the stencil on the gelli plate and brayering over - just play and experiment. I know I used Dina's Magenta paint but I'm not sure of the yellow (Fresco Finish probably) or the blue, but it doesn't really matter as That's Crafty! has a comprehensive range of acrylic paints to choose from.

I stamped the images onto scraps of gelli print using grey and black archival inks. For the flying bird and the plant I picked a print that had the same pink colour as my main background pink.

Once I had cut and glued my images in place I scribbled roughly round them with the Fude Ball and white pens, then added pink cheeks and some more yellow with a yellow Sharpie  and Magenta ProMarker. Then I added more black and white round the edge of the tag and also doodled spirals with them. Finally, I re-punched a hole (the original one was covered by the gelli print) and inserted an eyelet using my Crop-A-Dile.
