I painted this tag using my favourite Altenew flower stamp. First I white embossed on a scrap of watercolour paper and then painted with my Kuratake watercolours using blues and the shimmery white which left a beautiful sparkle on the flowers..
Leaves in two tones of green. Once finished I die cut with the stitches die.
I just poked a hole in the top and threaded thru about eight fine silver threads twisted
together. Once I had tied it off it was too light in weight and drifted everywhere. I was
going to twist again and glue then decided to use the little blue misshaped beads. Each
bead is hanging off one thread that I just put a single knot in thinned of.
Decided I use a blue cardbase and apiece of vellum with the white swirl
pattern on it. I cut the vellum so it was the same size as the front of the
card and hung slightly over the top of the card so I could attached from behind.
I decided to attached the vellum at an angle so the card base could be seen as well.
Attached the tag onto the vellum, twisted the silver thread and attached
at the side just under the tag so the tape wasn't visible. This made a beautiful
Birthday Card for mum to give to a friend. Left without a sentiment on the outside as
it was busy enough as it was.
I would like to enter this in
I have a few favourite techniques but my biggest favourite is colouring, whether its paint, pencil or copics. There is nothing more relaxing and rewarding.
