Funky Fossil New Stamp Set "Engine Room" Preview 2

Today, I am previewing another brand new stamp set from
Funky Fossil Designs.  It's the "Engine Room" clear stamp set, which I can see being very popular for birthdays and Father's Day card makes.  The Engine Room stamp set will be available to purchase from Friday 26th February 2021.

For this tag, I used the Funky Fossil "Crackle Background" stencil with "Bundled Sage" and "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide Inks (I think this stencil may have been retired from the range, a shame as it's one of my most used ones).

I used a couple of strips of the new Funky Fossil "Patina Washi Tape" for the top and the bottom of the tag, this tape with other products will also be available on the 26th February.  I then decided the central area needed a bit more colour, so added some "Rusty Hinge" and "Chipped Sapphire" Distress Oxide ink.

Over the top of the background I stamped the engine using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink,  I also inked the edges of the tag and stamped the sentiment using the same ink.

I decided it still needed a bit more colour, so I used the script stamp from the Funky Fossil "Musings" stamp set with Versafine Clair "summertime" orange ink, which lifted it a bit more.
