Tuesday Taggers entry


Tuesday taggers http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/ is a new challenge blog and their first challenge is new beginnings.
I needed to do a new home carsd so came up with the idea of putting a tag on a card (5x7")
I had this lovely little stamp that i had yet to use (it has been well christened)
Stamped background with distress ink in walnut and dabbed ink over card with a sponge.
I don't do a lot of colouring in as i am hopeless at it, this one has turned out ok. The background colour for the main image is actually blue and green pigment ink which i used after i had put on a coat of clear embossing powder i them put another layer of embossing powder on top. Gives a nice watercolour effect.
Scanner has not picked up that the red corrugated card is swiped with a golden ink which highlights the texture.
Added ric rac braid to complement the corrugated card, finished with brads, eyelets and new home banner.
