GD: Kate Yetter Project #2 Bloom Tag

"Welcome everyone, Kate here. Today I will be making a tag using the following supplies. A few items were added from my stash".

I started off by covering most of my tag with gesso.

I added a bit of Fresco Finish Sage over top of the gesso.

I used a stamp from the EDY07 stamp set and stamped with green ink over the bottom of 
the tag.

I colored in the flowers using Fresco Finish Beach Hut and the butterflies using Pumpkin Soup.

Using a punchinella stencil and Tattered Rose Distress Ink, I stenciled subtly over the background.

I painted Fresco Finish Beach Hut onto some card stock and stamped the sentiment from EDY07 over top before cutting it out.

I used the Chatsworth Paper Collection to die cut a large butterfly.

I sprayed the background with ink and added water to allow a soft watercolor effect.

I used the punchinella stencil on the background again but this time I used Black Soot Distress Ink.

After placing my flowers, die cut and stamped sentiment where I wanted them, I added a few touches of Stickles. Now the tag is complete.

Thank you so much for joining me this evening, tomorrow I will be back with my finale project. Gulp!

Leandra Says: Ohh I love how that distress ink works with everything to give a subtle glow!

Gillian Says: The softness of the paint colours reflect the delicate stamped images from this set. Very pretty.
