Visible Image "Love Is Love" tag

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.


  1. This is extremely pretty Sam and I love the script and sentiment with bits of added colour, and the washy background and added white stencilled spots is perfect! x

  2. A fabulous combination of script and image stamped set against the beautiful background wash
