The theme is still Anything Goes at Tag Tuesday
I was inspired by Sandra’s Tag to pull out a couple of face stamps to try her background technique. Which for me, eliminates the need to paint the image. I am pretty pleased with the front of this tag.
Both stamps are by Stampington & Company
On the back. I failed at choosing colors for the backside as well as bad placement for the face (which I tried to correct with Gesso). This entire tag was a learning experience anyway, so I kept it.
I used my Neocolor II crayons. I scribbled across the tag with the crayon then wet my fingertip and rubbed it over the colors. I did the same technique with the seam binding.
I wanted to tone down the colors around the images so I brushed some Gesso around the image with kind of a dry brush technique. I hoped the Gesso would take up the color underneath. I stamped some IndigoBlu images around the outside edges. To finish I tinted the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and Black Archival Ink.
April 2021 is already over! It was another month full of fun and art.
I’m hoping May will be full of the same.
