UKS sponsor Blog Hop


Hi there and welcome to my part in the blog hop.

Hopefully you have reached me through A Trip down Memory Lane

Here is my offering.


Materials

Manila tag
Dylusions stamp plates...Doodle Parts, Pondering Petunia, Say what you mean, Further around the edge.
Dylusions stencil 9 x 12 Dotted flowers
http://shop.afth.co.uk/ranger---tim-holtz-water-brush---detail-tip-7388-p.aspTim Holtz water brushes filled with Dylusions spray inks
Inkssentials white pen

Method

Spray a manila tag with Dylusions Squeezed Orange and Pure Sunshine inks.


Lay the dotted flower stencil over the tag and spritz with water.


Blot with kitchen roll to reveal the ghosted image.


Ink up the Toadstool stamp with black archival ink and stamp onto tag.


Stamp the image onto scrap paper and carefully cut out. Place the scrap over the stamped image, this will act as a mask.


Ink the toadstool stamp back up and stamp again, leaving the paper in place.


Repeat stamping until happy.


Ink up the frog stamp and stamp over the paper.


Ink up the solid leaf stamp with black and stamp around top of tag.


Your tag should now look like this.


Take the water brushes filled with Dylusions spray inks and colour in all the images.


Take the white pen and doodle.


Stamp the frog and border onto card, colour and cut out.


and add to tag. Stamp quote and colour.
