Rustic Tag by Shilpa

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,
Today I would like to share with you a tag...which is the theme of July challenge at Artistic stamper

I've used here Bird stamp from Artistic Stamper Birds of a Feather set,  AS Calligraphy mat 13, AS Free as a bird set.

I've small step by step for this tag,

I chose thick chipboard to make this tag. To start with I applied thick layer of modelling paste and stamped on it with AS Calligraphy mat text at one corner. On other corner I used stencil and modelling paste. Let it dry completely.

For base, I applied black gesso. It looks exactly like this..somewhere you will find the texture. :)

As I wanted rustic look, I applied distress paints - Gathered Twigs, Antique Bronze, Pine needles, cracked Pistachio with dry brush.

To highlight texture, I gently applied Inka gold old silver on raised area. 

this is a close up view.

 I stamped the bird with black archival ink and colored it with watercolors.
Leaf stamp is from AS Botanical plate2, which I stamped with distress paint, fussy cut it.
 Frame is from Tim Holtz industrial stickers

Are you liking it? Do let me know !! :)

And don't forget to participate in our monthly challenge to win fabulous stamps from Artistic stamper.
