I'm playing catch up again after being away for a few days. This is my Day 6 tag for the Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge with a brief of "gel plate" background.
Rather than just make one background, I made half a dozen as they're always handy to have in my stash for later use. Above are the six backgrounds I made.
I used Paperartsy chalk paints on my gel plate and a fern and an olive branch picked from the garden for the foliage pattern. In the background I have used the Lavinia Stamps "Cryptic" stencil, then taken a press.
I used a Sweet Poppy Stencils sentiment from their "Festive Phrases" stamp set, stamped in Wow! Bright White embossing powder and heat set.
I mounted the tag on to a white background and then went around the edge of the tag and some foliage using a silver glitter gel pen.
