Hi there, I have a tag to share this week featuring my first ink up of a new Carabelle Studio stamp and a rather accidental background, which didn’t quite go to plan!
First paint the tag with the gesso to give a good surface for the paint layers. I next used sponges to apply a mix of green, white and yellow paints to the tag. I ended up with a sort of marbled look, which was not quite what I was aiming for but after it dried I decided I liked it! Serendipity rules OK!
I then used the Bubbles stencil to add a pattern on top of the paint, first with white paint, then with lavender until I was happy with the effect.
I stamped the girl and fish image on white stamping card and painted them with the Paper Artsy paints. I painted her hair with lilac and lavender – I still have a thing for purple hair.
I added the images to the tag with foam tape and added strings of pearls to her hair to finish.
Have a great weekend and see you next week when some exciting things will be happening!
