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.
