I'm playing catch up on my tags again as I was away at the weekend attending a course. I'll share with you what I was up to in my next post.
This is my Day 19 tag of "Karen Telfer's 24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge.
For my tag, I used two Lavinia Stamps the "Mystic Swirl" and "Christmas Charms", stamped in Wow! clear embossing ink, coated in Wow! Rich Gold Embossing Powder and then heat set.
I then created the background colour using two shades of Distress Oxide Inks: "Twisted Citron" and "Lucky Clover". I deliberately kept the darker ink away from the hanging star, to give the impression that the star is shining light. I rubbed over the heat embossing with a cloth to remove any ink that was over it.
Next, I used a fan shaped paint brush, dipped in water and tapping the brush over the surface of the tag, creating tiny droplets, I then blotted the water, which left a lovely bleached splattered look.
I used the same technique with metalic gold paint to add tiny gold flecks across the surface of the tag.
Finally, I mounted the tag on to a piece of red card and outlined the inner tag with a metalic gold pen.
