Find your style

I am still loving a return to some Wendy Vecchi style tags using die-cuts and wooden pieces in a similar way to Wendy's art parts.

I began with Wendy Vecchi's archival reinkers background using surgical spirit to help blend the colours on the tag adding a top stenciled border using dried marigold DI and I drew lines in using a fine pitt artist pen. For the bottom border I used wild honey and the central stenciling is a light layer of ground espresso. I also stamped an old wooden stamp to create more depth with the text.

I painted a wooden frame, stamped on it and blended ground espresso round the edges, the dress form was die cut from greyboard and Tim's papers and the sentiment is one of Wendy's.

I added two buttons on the dress form and there is a wooden star that was rubbed in ground espresso distress ink.

In true Wendy style my tag is shorter than normal at 5 1/2 inches long. It's a great size to create on.

I finished off with a few remnant rubs and a piece of distressed ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today and a huge thank you to those of you who leave me a comment. I read and value each and every one of them.

Take care, have a great weekend and let your creativity fly.
