It seems quite some time since I last made a tag, so I decided to have a play making this one.
I started with a cream coloured blank tag. On my glass mat, I dabbed the following Distress Oxide inks: Dried Marigold, Rusty Hinge, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire. I strized each one with a little water then ran the tag through the colours, after each colour, I used the heat gun to dry the tag. I continued doing this till the surface was covered.
I inked the edges of the tag with "Chipped Sapphire" Distress Oxide Ink and then edged it with Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" I multi stamped the Sweet Poppy "Botanical Thistle Stem Stamp". I coloured the image with Van Goch Pastel Pencils and a white gel pen.
*Edited to add
I forgot to mention the spotlight area. I used a die cut circle of plastic and Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink with a finger dabber to create the dark ring around the thistle and bee.
Starting in the middle and working my way outwards and rotating the tag, so that I was always working in the same direction.
I used a white gel pen around the inner edge. I also used a white Pastel Pencil to lighten the area within the circle.
