It started as a T!mmy Tag...

As I had the day off today I thought I would have a go at the May tag over on the Tim Holtz blog. I haven't used my distress inks for a while so was looking forward to having a play..then realized I didn't really have a stamp suitable. Never mind I can still use my inks. Then I remembered my Andy Skinner stencils that arrived late last week, I had already used the children one so now was the time to try out the Baroque one....it is gorgeous!!

 I started off with a size 8 tag and used picked raspberry, broken china,wild honey and evergreen bough distress inks, just randomly covering the tag. I then used black soot through the stencil..

I stamped some small script and numbers minis from paper artsy in vermillion archival all over the tag,
then Dream from a T!m set and coloured it in with an orange pitt pen..also added some of the orange around the numbers.

I edged the tag with black soot and added some white dots with a white gel pen, a few bits of white to highlight the face.

I coloured a piece of seam binding in distress inks and tied it to the top..I do love this stencil..

Thanks for stopping by...

  2. Lovely! The colours seem to glow and that stencil is amazing; I can see why you love it. A really beautiful tag. I love it! I don't know much about Andy Skinner designs - must research. x

  3. I think it looks just great - love the colours. I didn't realise pitt pens came in anything other than black, until recently!! love this orange.

  4. Terrific tag, the colours are great & I love the white border.
