Day 17 - Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags" Challenge

This is my Day 17 tag.  It's a riot of colours, which I felt leant itself to the word "peace". 

I used a selection of Distress Oxide Inks (Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot and Dusty Concord) for the background colour.

I spritzed the Funky Fossil "Pine Needles" stencil with water, tapping off any surplus, then lay the wet side down on to my tag.  I mopped up any surplus water using a piece of kitchen roll.  The area where the water on the stencil touches the inks on the tag will become bleached/lighter in colour leaving the stencil cut out detail as the main focal point.  Once the stencil was lifted, I mopped up any little puddles that had gathered on the surface of the tag and then used the heat gun on a low heat to dry the tag.

I used a Stampin' Up die cut for the "peace" sentiment.  The die is part of their "Christmas Greetings" set of three dies, run through my Sizzix Big Shot.  I then adhered the die to the tag.
