Today I'm sharing my second DT piece for Country View Crafts and it will also be my last. It's time to move on, I've enjoyed my time at CVC but there are other things brewing and I need to make time for them.
So, on to today's piece which is a jumbo tag !
I started by covering the tag with a piece of fabric. I then gave the whole thing a wash of watered down Tikka Fresco Finish paint.
I then used various stencils building up the background. The two words are made using a JOFY stencil and Grunge Paste. When the paste was dry I replaced the stencil and used Renaissance Treasure Gold and brushed it over the letters.
I used a fine detail brush and added a shadow to the letters using Chocolate Pudding Fresco Finish paint.
The small tag is also covered with fabric and I've used Lin Brown's 006 stencil with Grunge Paste to create the leaves.
The flower is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and I've cut it from Grunge Paper that I've also covered with fabric. I've then used Claret Fresco Finish paint over the fabric, the pattern on the fabric can still be seen as the paint is translucent.
The small flower in the centre is resin and I've painted it with Fresco Finish paint and brushed Renaissance Treasure Gold over the top. The two leaves are wooden and I've sponged Freco Finish paint over them.
There's still time for you to join in with this month's challenge of Word Play, I hope you get chance to join us !
