Red and D Tag Challenge


Today I have a tag to share that I created to join in with the Dragons Dream Tag It On challenge blog HERE

This time round the challenge is to use red and the letter D - my D word is drip:

It's a big size 10 tag, coloured with various reds from the Fresco paints range - I think I used London Bus, Cherry Red and Claret.

The background is a Tim Holtz stencil sponged through using a mixture of Pumpkin Soup and Haystack.

The stamping was done using black versafine ink and the stamps are all from Stamps by Ryn, Effects 2. I added highlights using my white Sharpie pen then used glossy accents to make them look more like real drips and drops.

The letters are some Papermania stickers I found in my stash - I distressed them a little using Walnut Stain distress ink and also went around the tag edges with the Walnut too.

A little bit of black sketchy pen added around the letters and then some raffia added to the top to finish.

Hope you've enjoyed my tag today :-)
