Hi there, Bentley has come out to ply again this week as I love his dreamy look and I’ve made a tag in summery colours as I’ve got a longing for those Spring and Summer sunny days. I’ve chosen my favourite bokeh look too as I love how this technique looks.
That’s Crafty! Surfaces – White/Greyboard Tag Size 8 (the nearest to mine which I’ll explain below)
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints – Haystack, Banana, Lavender, Lilac
Use the brayer to apply the lilac and haystack paints to the tag and when dry, use the bubbles stencil with the white gesso and the lilac, lavender and banana paints to add a pattern to the surface.
Stamp Bentley on the tag with the black ink and stamp again on white stamping card. Colour the image on card with the watercolour pencils.
Cut the image out but you can ignore the whiskers and when cut out, you glue it over the image stamped on the tag. Just remember to line up the whiskers – good huh!
Check the bubble pattern and adjust if necessary then add your chosen sticker from the book and tie some yellow ribbon through the top to finish.
My tag was actually made using part of something that went horribly wrong when I was stencilling a word and too much paint went on, happily I managed to salvage this bit and the result with a bit of tweaking is as you see here.
We have a new challenge for you today over at That’s Crafty! Challenge Blog, the first of 2017. You’ll find all the details of how you can win a fab prize when it goes live at 8am so don’t forget as you have to be in it to win it!
