I Saw That...

Hello and welcome to my blog today!

Today I'm sharing another shiny style tag to join in the current theme over on the Paperartsy blog HERE

This tag was most definitely inspired by the wonderful clock created by Lou Collins as part of the shiny challenge which you can see HERE

I loved the clock Lou did but was too nervous to do a home decor project straight away so decided to try it out on a tag first:

I used exactly the same colours as Lou; Bora Bora, Slate, Toffee and Old Gold in the same way she did in the step by steps on the PA blog.


I stamped the film strip and sentiment straight onto the tag using black archival. Then stamped the cameras twice onto a piece of card painted with Old Gold and cut out and layered.

All the stamps were from the Paperartsy Hot Picks 1305 stamp plate.

To finish I added Treasure Gold Renaissance around the edges with my finger and a piece of paper gold raffia to the top.



I love the patina colour effect this paint technique created and it's something I'll deffo try again on different substrates and projects!

Thanks for stopping by today!
