Hi there, this week I’m sharing my first attempt at altering an acrylic tag using paint and I hope you like what I’ve created which is on one of my favourite themes, nature.
Tim Holtz Cling Stamp Sets – Wildflowers, Watercolor
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint – China, Smurf, Zucchini
Stazon Ink – Cheery Pink, Pumpkin, Olive Green, Stone Grey
Peel the backing off both sides of the tag and stamp your chosen wild flower on the back twice, using the grey ink. Once the ink is dry, paint over the top using green on the bottom half and the lighter blue on the top half.
I did try stamping the flower in colour on the front of the tag but the result wasn’t punchy enough so I stamped the flowers on stamping card with the pink, orange and green inks then cut the flowers out.
Stamp the butterfly you choose twice on stamping card with the black ink and paint with the china blue before cutting out.
Glue the flowers and butterflies on as shown and you’ll need to trim some of the flowers to fit.
Here’s a close up so you can see the texture in the background, as it might not show up as well in the main photo.
Have a great weekend and see you next week.
