windows and doors

Another tag for the paper artsy challenge number 4. You can pop over here to see all the great pieces done by the designers.

I just did a simple tag using some houses which I think Chris sent me. I used broken china and peeled paint on the tag then brayered over with tinned peas and glass blue frescos..

I then stuck the houses on and enhanced the colours using gelatos and a whitre pen. I edged them with a black pencil.

paper artsy challenge 4

Haven't done a lot of blogging lately..life gets in the way sometimes..but have managed a couple of hours in my shed today. I thought I@ have a go at the current PA challenge which you can go see here. I decide on a tag as I wasn't sure how much time I would have to play.

I started with a large size 10 tag and had a play with my new oxide ink pads.. they are great you must try them if you haven't already
I used a gothic window die I had forgotten I had to be honest..

I used fired brick...spiced marmalade and fossilized amber inks. I stamped a couple of paper artsy minis on the background in walnut stain and black.

I stamped one of lynne perella stamps from this plate here number 034 behind the window and placed it on the tag..
