As the weather's been pretty chilly, to say the least, I've stayed in the warm and more importantly in my craft room ! So I took the opportunity to have a play with the new Eclectica Stamps by Lin Brown and Fresco Finish paints.
I also got out my Gelli Plate and used London Bus and Smoked Paprika Fresco Finish paint. Then I used the tulip stamp from the Lin Brown 03 set and smoothed the white card over it. Love the results !
I covered a jumbo tag with the Gelli Plate card and then did some stencilling using the Chicken Wire stencil and a new Donna Downey stencil using London Bus Fresco Finish paint. I stamped the text from the Sara Naumann 02 plate using Claret Fresco Finish. The small flowers are from the Lin Brown 02 set and are stamped onto black card using Butternut and Claret Fresco Finish. The large leaves are from the 01 set and are stamped onto Grunge Paper that I've painted with Guacamole and then stamped with Hyde Park tipped with a little Smoked Paprika.
I covered some Grunge Paper with sticky back canvas then stamped the tulip 6 times using black Archival ink. I then painted over them using Fresco Finish paint and cut out the top layer for each flower. As I've used Grunge Paper it made it easier to bend the petals. I've stamped the word onto some more Grunge Paper covered with canvas. The frame is from a set of metal embellishments I bought years ago and have never used. I've sponged Butternut Fresco Finish over it and then when it was dry sponged Chocolate Pudding over it. I dyed the lace using Antique Linen Distress Stains and the seam binding was dyed with Ripe Persimmon Distress Stains.
I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges :
