Skullduggary Tag by Carol Fox

I have used a couple of stencils and a bit of paint on a tag this week, I hope you like it.


·       I started with a large sized No.8 tag. I applied Grunge Paste through the mini Flower Shower stencil down the left hand side of the tag. When this was dry, I laid the Skullduggary mask onto the right hand side and applied the Grunge Paste through the smaller of the two skull shapes.

·       When this was dry, I painted it all with the Little Black Dress Paint, heat dried, applied a coat of crackle and then used Honeydew over this.

·       I re-laid my skull mask over the raised area and using the black paint with Cut and Dry Foam, I applied paint to the raised area.

·       I now applied gilding wax to the tag to highlight the Grunge Pasted areas, I also gave the edges of the tag a quick run round with the black paint left on the cut and dry foam.

·       I stamped the poison bottles directly onto the tag and coloured these in with Fresco Paints.

·       I finished by stamping my word, highlighting it with Glossy Accents, and adding a piece of ribbon.


I used 

Fresco Finish Paints: Little Black Dress, Honeydew, Toad Hall, Eggplant
Gilding Wax: Amethyst, Cast Bronze
Ribbon Scrap
