"Now this one might look simple, but it is so delicate you might have to start over a couple of times".
Using a paint brush, I painted a piece of tissue paper (the kind you get when buying new shoes and don’t let this be an excuse to get a new pair!) with Claret Fresco. When doing this you have to be careful: the paper is fragile and adding a wet medium to it doesn’t help!
I very carefully applied a layer of Crackle Glaze with a palette knife, left it to dry, then added Inky Pool Fresco with a piece of Cut N Dry. Once it was crackled, I accentuated the crackle by crumpling the paper. Again, it’s a delicate step, especially when you try to flatten the paper again!
I cut the tag in 3 pieces and sew them back together to accentuate the wording which was stamped in Honey Dew Fresco and the Eclectic Plate 2 stamp.
I applied a mixture of GrungePaste and Inky Pool Fresco over the Mini Chicken Wire Reversed Stencil.
The flowers are Crunchy Waxed Kraft Paper cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland Die. I colorized the Grunge Paste and the flowers with PanPastels to get the same yet softer color as the background. To colourize the crinkle ribbon, I mixed up some Claret Fresco with water.
I hope you enjoyed the techniques in this tag and look forward to seeing your interpretations of this project. To share your art work with us this week, simply click HERE to upload/share your creativity.
Leandra Says:Oh love how you have stitched the unusual background back together, that's a subtle addition that looks so funky! Another wonderful week France! Thankyou! x
Gillian Says: The distressed background looks great, love the knocked back bits exposing the Claret, love the contrast of the stamped areas and the stitching detail finishes it off perfectly. Thank you for another week of creativity France x
