Tim has a fabulous tag this month (as always) but here in the UK we don’t have the sizzlits stamps and dies he used (hopefully next month) but that hasn’t stopped me playing with the stencil monoprint technique that he has used. In fact I played with various stencils and different types of paper to see what effects I could achieve before making my tag.
This is the background I used for my tag and the print is on smooth cartridge paper.
Canvas textured acrylic paper.
Card bought from Ally Pally in my last visit.
Oil sketching pad ……
… and the second generation stamp of the previous one on the same paper.
Bockingford watercolour paper 140 lb.
Direct to a tag.
I used the Merchantile stamp set ….. stamping several of the stamps twice, painting the image with distress inks and adhering over the stamped image on the tag.
I used the alphabet stamp for some background interest ….
covering the inked and painted bottle in glossy accents and adding a vintage pen nib,
Tim shows how to tie this lovely bow on the tag.
Tim shows all the details of how to do the techniques on his blog and I will be entering this into his monthly collection..
It's a busy week for me this week now, visiting my sister today, doing the Dylusions and journalling workshop for Country View Crafts tomorrow and then Friday morning off to the Isle of Wight Festival for the weekend, Biffy Clyro, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Kings of Leon here I come. Weather looks promising too, mind you the forecast changes every day.
Have a great week yourself and see you Friday with the new challenge starting at A Vintage Journey.
