This week sees the release of the newest Paperartsy stamp sets - there are so many wonderful projects over on the blog this week it really is inspirational.
So obviously I couldn't wait to get my hands on some of these so popped my order in with Country View Crafts and they came really quickly. I couldn't wait to have a play so here is a giant tag I created last night:
My tag started off with my attempt to recreate the background technique video Lin Brown shared over on the Paperartsy blog last night using a card to add the paint, I used these paints on my tag:
The background uses two of Lin's stencils, done in Snowflake first then with Limelight over the top.
I stamped the Poppy from Hot Picks 1505 and added an extra stem to the side. The leaves and both flowers were stamped separately onto some painted card and then layered on top.
I mixed some grunge paste with the leftover Carribean Sea and Tangerine Twist and added this to the tag through the new numbers stencil.
I added some script stamping using the fab new script stamp from Hot Picks 1501 in sepia ink.
I edged the tag with Black Soot distress ink then stamped the No 1 in black archival in the bottom corner which is also from Hot Picks 1501.
I'm linking my tag to the following challenges:
