Dance Tag by Alison

Hello Stampers! I have a little painty tag to share with you today.


Here's what I used...

Charm

And this is how I made my tag...

I gave my tag a base coat of Snowflake Fresco paint, using a brayer. I brayered on some Bora Bora, dried with a heat gun, applied some London Bus, drying again, then finished with a little Snowflake to tone down the colours.

I stamped the larger dots from the Borders set along the bottom edge with archival ink. I inked up just a small part of the tiny dot border, & stamped my background. I used the white pen to highlight some of the tiny dots, then edged the tag with archival ink.

I stamped the dancer onto white card, coloured her with watered down London Bus Fresco, cut her out & glued her to the tag with glossy accents.

I stamped the Dylusions phrase onto white card, cut it out & used glossy accents to glue it to the tag.

I coloured some seam binding with watered down London Bus Fresco, tied it to the top of my tag, then finished with a jump ring and charm.

Thanks for dropping by,

Alison xxx

It's delicious - gorgeous brayered background, and the dancer looks fabulous - love the positioning with the arm and skirt coming off the tag - it adds real drama and movement.
