Good evening all, Sam here and so pleased to have been asked to make a project for the PA blog. I started crafting about 10 years ago and I fell into it by pure accident. Someone sent me a handmade Christmas card and I was taken by it and thought ‘I can do that’ and the rest as they say is history.
I’ve made a simple tag using a few techniques in the hope that you will give it or elements of it a try. Here is the finished tag.
I started off by brayering caramel fresco paint onto the large #12 sized tag, added the new autumn fire colour and finally a splash of blood orange. The background was stamped all over in black archival using the sketchy rectangle from the EEV02 stamp plate. I then went back in with my white Posca pen and added more hi-lights.
I die cut the pediments in the prima elemental resist canvas, scribbled on them with the red portfolio pastel, used a baby wipe to blend the colour and then went back in with a clean piece and swiped over the resist to reveal the white.
I stamped some Lynne Perrella oriental images from LP021 & LP023 in black and blaze red stazon onto plain white card and mounted them onto the size #8 corrugated tag coloured in blood orange fresco paint. Overlaying the image stamped on the butterfly shape over the main image.
To finish I added a piece of brayered and stamped crunchy wax paper and the oriental symbol from the Ink and the Dog Asian plate #4.

Thanks for looking. Sam
A huge thank you to Sam from all at PaperArtsy HQ, so lovely to have another of our #PATwits joining us on the blog. The colours on this tag are stunning, can't go wrong with black and red. The butterfly shape over the face is a perfect touch, simple but really elegant. Ellen's stamps look great in the background, showing just how much texture a simple stamp can bring to a project.
