This week's theme from Hels Sheridan is blue & brown. I love blue & brown together so that's a good start! Hels has made another stunning tag on this theme so take a look & be inspired.
Firstly I painted my tag with a mixture of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish in south pacific & ice blue, using a 'special touch of mica' dotty mask for some of the painting. After drying I stamped an Artemio script in Memento's rich cocoa. This bled out a bit but I quite liked the effect so kept it. I then sprayed tumbled glass distress stain through the dotty mask, edged with walnut stain & dried. I cut out a scalloped border from Tim's Kraft Resist card & also edged with walnut stain. I am trying to use up old bits & pieces & found a card 'scroll', painted it with Fresco chocolate pudding paint & spritzed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Creme de Chocolat. The moth was stamped in black & sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Teal Wash Mist then adorned with some bling! The flower (from my blog candy) was painted in south pacific & ice blue & layered up with a K&Co brad. I can't chuck anything away so a broken old paper clip charm had a new Prima flower added to it. The words 'Secret Garden' (PaperArtsy) was stamped in brown & coloured in stormy sky & walnut stain ink, flicked with water & had the corners rounded & attached to clip. Finally I added blue & brown vintage ribbon & a brown Prima wired gem.
