PA challenge 1

This tag was inspired by Helen Chilton over on the Paper Artsy's blog, you can see Helen's here.
I didn't have any water soluable oil pastels, so used my Gelatos instead. I do love playing with these and I'm still learning all the different ways to use them. 

I found some tissue paper with writing and pictures on which I liked. I tore two piece and stuck them to my tag using Claudine hellmuth matte medium. I died this off and  I scribbled with the gelatos in different colours and then used a wet finger to blend them. 

I used the diamond stencil and removed some colour with a baby wipe. This wasn't really successful so I used some distress ink and stencilled the diamond on. I liked this effect.

I then stamped my feature using Paper Artsy stamps plate ID04 which I love. I recently purchased this and this is my first play.

I added an eyelet to the hole at the top and threaded a heart and then stamped a sentiment.

And the finished tag

I really enjoyed making this tag. Thank you for looking and I would love to read your comments.xx

  6. Gorgeous tag! Background is so beautiful.

  7. I love the depth of colour you've achieved here yet it's still quite transparent if that makes any sense at all.
    Great choice of images, the elements work perfectly together
