Here's what I've made for today's hop - hope you like it!
|Partly in shadow I'm afraid as I took the photos on a very sunny day.
|I used all the DecoArt products here and something from each of the Stampendous stamp packs and the Creative Palette of course - couldn't get a clearer photo to show the paint shades, sorry.
|Lightly coat the tag surface with a transparent shade of DecoArt Media acrylic. Don't worry about the little bubbles. I just dry these with a heat gun and they stay flat/attached.
|Use the free stencil from the Stampendous stamp pack and apply DecoArt Translucent white acrylic (I LOVE this stuff because it's hugely versatile). I use the lightweight masking tape to hold my stencil down because otherwise, I make a mess!
|Apply in a few areas on your tag. Note that you can still see the background through the paint.
|Using Stazon ink, stamp some script onto a piece of acetate. Allow to dry naturally. Cut acetate so the script is at an angle. Apply to tag with double sided tape but just use tiny pieces.
|Put a small amount of your chosen paint/s onto a craft mat and dilute with water.
|Drag some ribbon through the colours until you are happy with the result. Scrunch up the ribbon into a ball and dry carefully with a heat gun. Soooo simple isn't it?
