Lavinia Stamps "Fairy Thistles" Tag

Sorting through a box of Brusho off-cuts from previous projects, I came across one that was large enough to make a tag out of. It had a streak of orange going from one corner to the other, with some hints of pink too, so that dictated the colour scheme for this project.

I decided to fill some of the plain white areas using "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then lay the Lavinia Stamps "Leaf Trails" stencil over the top, applying "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil. I then used a fan shaped paint brush to sprinkle fine droplets of water over the surface and blotted dry.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Fairy Thistle" and the "Heartfelt Verse" sentiment in Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink.

I used an assortment of items to colour the thistles, Derwent Inktense Pencils, a fine liner and assorted normal and glitter gel pens.
