Tag your it

This week I have a little game for you, below is my tag from Imagine If .The first person that guesses
what the main colour will be on it, will get a gift in the post from me.

Now for our blog hop this week you should have started at Imagine If
and come from Ngaeres  blog before me.
.
.I really love this tag, its a good size ,
If you got a few of these it would make a great brag book to


First I sealed the tag with Gesso



 I used my Gellie plate to make the back ground color


I mixed my colors, then place the bubbles stencil over the top,
and on top of that went my tag


I really should have got a photo of the tag on its own
but you can see the pattern still, its on the right hand side
of the photo..


next I placed the negative of my large stencil, which is something
no other stencil makers do that I know of, and I LOVE IT
Then  I rolled black on the gellie plate , removed my lady, leaving
it clear of paint where she was as above.


 I then placed my tag color side down, gave it a good roll with the
 brayer . Lifted the tag and this is what you get.


I then used the butterfly stencil to give her wings, I used masking
tape to cover up a small area to get the effect I wonted


Using whipped spackle I filled in the areas I wonted, which gave a
lovely white raised effect


When doing this remove the stencil carefully, so as not to
drag it across the wet spackle


I added this lovely quote from " wings and things" quote sheet
I love these sheets, makes adding little quotes and sayings so
easy. Some times my brain just wont help me out .


Added a few bits and bobs .and  here's the finished tag


Below are the 3 stencils I used from Imagine If

Due to Jo being so busy with 1 craft show after another not
all of the stencils are up on the site, but you can e-mail Jo
and she will get you sorted out.

Ivory. Was going to say brown as you like the old look which I think you would then use to age the edges.
