Handle With Care - New Andy Skinner products

I have a tag today which has lots of the new Andy Skinner products on it which have just been released (see products list below). 

Process steps

Take a palette knife and drag some white gesso down the tag and dry it. Then blend in some acrylic paints.

Stamp with the new gorgeous distressed wallpaper stamp, I used cobalt blue and watering can archival inks.

Splatter with titanium white and medium grey watery paints.
Stamp some text using a stamp from Andy's older tech trauma set, sand the edges of the tag and blend in ground espresso distress ink.

Stamp the lovely gypsie queen moth and cut out adding some colours to it and also the Fig number.

Take and add some embellishments and you're done.

I really love the shabby distressed wallpaper and to have such a beautiful moth stamp is great
The title is from Andy's mixed media transfers and they rub on beautifully.

Hope you like the new products and have found some inspiration from the tag. I am sharing it on the Andy Skinner blog and there will also be lots of other great projects from other team members there to explore.

I just love this tag - the wallpaper stamp over the distressed paint looks incredible. As I said over at Andy's, I ordered the moth yesterday, and may now have to yield to the wallpaper too!
