My muse was loud today. I used Peacock Feathers, Pickled Raspberry, and Scattered Straw distress stains. I sprayed them on the tag to get big bursts of color and runny drips. I ran my Scattered Straw ink around the entire tag to fill in the blanks.
I adore this stamp from Dina Wakley. I think it is one of my favorites. She just looks bad ass. I stamped her in Archival Ink. I added a bit of washi tape to the side to add some more layers.
The crown was made with mica and there is a tiny compass on it to always guide her in the right direction. The paint circles were made using black acrylic and white Distress Paint. You can see a tiny bit of stenciling up here too. The blue wooden circle is a game piece (I have no idea what game it came from) with a remnant rub sentiment.
I used texture paste through my Dyan stencil on top of the washi tape and a bit more in the bottom corner.
I dipped my paint brush into my Distress Paint and flicked it all over the tag. I roughed up the edges and then ran Black Soot Distress Ink all around. The soda top "j" reminds me that this tag is for me!
I colored the brads using white embossing powder that had a drop of alcohol ink in it. I didn't want them to be glossy so after I heated them I smashed them into my craft sheet. Once they were cool I ran Black Soot ink on top.
The crinkle ribbon was colored with the three Distress Stains and stenciled using Black Soot.
I know this is totally different from what Tim produced, but this is what my muse said to do!
I hope you enjoy it.
I am also entering this into Mixed Media Monthly Challenge- Stencils and Paste and A Vintage Journey's- Stain it.
