Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 17

It's Day 17 of Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  This week the theme is to use a palette knife.

I found a backgroud in my stash that had paint splodges across it, so decided that this would be the base of my tag, sticking the patterned paper to a tag to give it a bit more substance.

Next, I used the Ranger "Opaque Crackle Texture Paste", applied with a palette knife through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Bubble Layering Stencil - THS138', just keeping it to the right hand side of the tag.  I then used my heat gun to accelerate the crackle process.

I used two shades of Distress Oxide Ink to colour the crackle area, using "Victorian Velvet" and "Iced Spruce".  I then Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink to ink the edges of the tag, before mounting it on to a piece of black card and cutting to size.

Finally I added two words to the tag "Say" and "Something", both are from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology "Big Chat" word sticker booklet.  I stuck them on to black card, cut to size and then used black foam pads to elevate the words.
