Tag Sam style

Sam one of the PATwits was guess designer this week with this great tag. So I thought I'd have a go following Sam's style. I used different colours and stamps but followed her background technique.

I chose my colours

And brayered them onto the tag

Sam used one of Ellen Vargo's stamps from Paper Artsy but I don't have that one and so used this stamp I picked up somewhere (cannot remember where- sorry). I used archival ink in watering can and then dried the tag, I used the same same stamp but this time black. With a white paint pen I drew some highlights. I used distress ink round the edge in seedless preserves.

I moved on to the corrugated card which I painted in black Gesso. I stamped the face from the 

Lynne Perrella Collection 028 but altered the sides to fit my card. 

I added a few bits and bobs as you can see and the result was this finished tag.

Thank you for looking. I would love to read your comment. 

I will enter the challenge at Paper Artsy.
