Feeling Blue with TIO

Hello everyone. Happy Friday from me to all you peeps in crafty land. Thank you for popping in, so I can show you my Tag I created for the theme at Dragons Dreaming challenge which is blue and words.

I painted my tag with Bora Bora Fresco acrylics from Paper Artsy and when dry coated it in crackle glaze. I mixed together snowflake and Blue Oyster to make a very pale blue. 

Little tip! Keep your empty bottles to use with mixed colours. I've got one that I'm going to use for a flesh colour Im going to mixed. Frescos are great for painting faces with but I needed a slightly different shade than is available. I'll show the colour once I do it.

I coated the glaze with the blue and while it was drying I made my flowers. 

I took a 12x12 sheet of tissue paper from PA and painted it in 3 shades of blue, Smurf, Sky and and Glass Blue

Once  these were dry I folded the paper to the colours and then folded it in 3. 

There was a small amount left which I cut off. I then stamped my flowers from JOFY 32 I then cut them out. I stamped the butterfly on the remaining paper which gave me 3 layers.

I assembled the flowers and butterfly. 

The flowers were very full and could be easily moved into shape. I then stamped on the tag again using Jo's stamps. I assembled my tag and added my sentiment.

Some close ups 

I enjoyed making these flowers and hope you like my Tag.

See you soon Take care Debs xx
