While I had lots of my Distress Oxide Inks out to create Tag 20, I decided to make a wash of colours across a tag.
First I dampened the surface of the tag with a good spritz of water. Using a wet paint brush I dragged the brush across the surface, moving on to the next colour and so on, till the colours merged and blended into each other like a water colour effect.
I used the following Distress Oxide Inks: Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood, Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet. I then gave the tag a blast with the heat gun to dry off the surface.
Using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the right hand side face of the Visible Image "Love is Love" stamp set.
Using the same ink, I stamped the sentiment, which is also a Visible Image stamp from their stamp set called "Equality, Hope and Love". I also used the same ink to edge the tag.
I felt the tag needed something else, so using the Visible Image "Two Tone" stencil and a white Posca Pen, I added some spots to the background.
I then used different coloured Posca Pens to add interest to the stamped image.
