Today I'm sharing my Eclectic Paperie DT project for the current eTeam picks challenge which is 'Hope'.
I started with a jumbo tag and used the Mini Cubist stencil and Wendy Vecchi's white embossing paste. I then painted the whole thing with Glue 'n' Seal to protect it and started to blend Fresco Finish paint over the top using a baby wipe.
I then used the Mini Small Circles stencil with more Fresco Finish paint and did some random stamping with the PaperArtsy Mini 44. The letters are cut from mount board using the WordPlay die and I've painted them with a mixture of French Roast and Claret Fresco Finish paint. The lace and the birdcage have also been painted with this combination too.
The flower is made from a die cut piece of Crinoline and the top two layers are left over canvas resist flowers from the Finnabair workshop I did last year. I've painted them with Fresco Finish Spanish Mulberry and then sponged some French Roast around he edges. The leaves are die cut using the Tim Holtz Garden Greens die and I've painted them with Fresco Finish painted and then stamped script over them.
The butterfly is by Petaloo and I've lightly brushed some Fresco Finish paint over the wings. The ribbon is seam binding and I've brushed it with watered down Fresco Finish paint and then stamped onto it using the Wendy Vecchi mesh background stamp.
My intention is that this tag will form part of a journal page, so this is part 1 !
