Tag Trio with Paperartsy Stamps

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share a trio of tags I created after seeing a project on the Paperartsy blog by Anneke De Clerck

I started with three plain tags and randomly brushed on three colours of Fresco paint: Mermaid, Candy Floss and Haystack.

I then did some background stamping using the same colours of paint and two Eclectica Darcy stamps sets.

I stamped the main images also from Eclectica Darcy sets 9 and 10 using black versafine ink onto each of the tags.

I gave the images an undercoat of Chalk Fresco paint before adding colour using a mixture of Limelight, Zesty Zing, Smoked Paprika and Bora Bora.

I added grunge paste through the Paperartsy Lin Brown bubble stencil then once dry painted it with Ice Blue Fresco and highlighted the bubbles with a white posca pen.

Here is a closer view of each tag:

To finish of the tags I edged them with Slate Fresco and added shading around some of the stamping using a grey spectrum noir pencil.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Claire xx
