Hearty Tag!

Hi Everyone and thanks for dropping in today.

Here is a tag I created after watching Leandra from Paperartsy demo on Periscope with some new stamps by one of their designers - Darcy Wilkinson.

Created the background in the same way Leandra did using cut and dry foam with Caribbean Sea and Teresa Green Fresco paints. Whitewashed it using water and Snowflake.

A bit of background stamping with frond type things and a texture type stamp from Darcy plate EDY11 and some stencilling through a Lin Brown stencil was added before another wash of watery Snowflake to knock it back some more.

I stamped the focal image from Darcy plate EDY10 and painted it using Pumpkin Soup, Smoked Paprika, Snowflake, Pea Coat and Hey Pesto.

Added the quote from Sara Naumann plate ESN11 and then a few white dots here and there.

Mounted onto black card, added the eyelet and some ribbon and that was it finished.

I'm linking this to the current Paperartsy challenge which is hearts - you can find out all the details HERE.

Thanks for looking,
