Hold Fast....by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's my (Sioux) turn again and I'm here to share a tag :)




1. I first made a background using Distress Inks in mustard seed spiced marmalade and worn lipstick with a touch of gesso dabbed here and there too...then stamped the Gibson Girl 4 in Versafine black. Stamped the sentiment Hold Fast...also in Versafine. Then masked the Gibson girl and stamped the bird from Airmail Bird Collage Elements in Versafine over this.

2. Masked the bird and stamped approximately half the tag with the numbers background from Numerical by Katy Fox in Distress weathered wood and the other half with the script from Airmail Bird Collage Elements in Distress vintage photo.


3. I stamped the Retro Squares border by Neil Walker randomly around the edges firstly with Distress Ink aged mahogany and off set the same border again using Adirondack in pool.

4. Stamped the word Love from Journaling Words 1 in Versafine and added a bit of shadow around the lady using a Distress marker in chipped sapphire.

5. Aged the edges with some more vintage photo and added some gold wire scrunched up through the tag top.



See you again soon!
xoxo Sioux

What a fabulous tag - rich gold colours, and that ominous raven. The reverse with the text stamped head mask makes the whole piece so atmospheric - wow!
