Another project inspired by Helen Chilton over on the paper artsy blog. Helen used an old credit card for this project but I didn't have one so I used a piece of plastic packaging. Well two pieces. I painted both with snowflake and let it dry.
The first tag was sponged and blended in london bus..smoked paprika and a bit of zesty zing. I then stamped the background using script from PT4 and background 5 in black archival. Knocked it back with watered down snowflake and stamped mini 84 with crimson archival.
The second tag I painted a base coat in snowflake then blended limelight and south pacific. Stamped the script from BG2 randomly and mini 72 in black archival.
I then stamped the small script stamp using manganese blue ink. Stamped the small tag and hat from PT4 and painted with the same colours as the tag, cut it out and heated the tag until it started to curl and left to set again.
I stuck it to the larger tag with foam squares and added some blue fibres, gave it two coats of gloss glaze and edged the larger tag with black archival. This is a very good way to use up all the packaging we end up with, so thank you Helen for the inspiration.
