Tag number 3

Time for the next tag, I am still creating one every day (but posting only every second day or so)...
This one is very different from number one and number two
It started out looking like this. The background was done with the help of a gelli plate, two colours of acrylic paint (Decoart English Iron Oxide and Golden Hansa Yellow Hue) and a stencil.
Next came some background stamping, using Orange Blossom and Sepia Archival inks.
Finally, the focal image is a scrap of a paper serviette, blended into the background with the help of a bit more of the same paints and some further stamping.
A couple of little embellishments and some Tim Holtz word stickers finish it all off.
Well, that's it for today, short and sweet.... I am having fun with these little wooden tags, even though I am not quite sure how I am going to use them. That's why there is no ribbon or twine at the top yet. I have all sorts of ideas floating in my head as to what I'll do with them, but more about that at some other point. Meanwhile, thanks for your visit today, your kind comments always warm my heart.

  5. What a beautiful warm glow there is to this, Astrid. Autumn is definitely on its way! I adore the background stamping in Sepia and Orange Blossom against that beautiful print, and the whole tag has an organic feel about it - as though it evolved naturally with great ease. Lovely.

    And of course I'm not offended - I'm really interested to hear your take on the indoor/outdoor difference. I've lots more weeks here to get used to it, and who knows, I might even end up agreeing with you...

    1. Oh, and I added the gel medium and gesso to the stash when I got here, as well as a few paints. Got in a tizzy when I read just before setting off that paints weren't allowed on United Airlines, even in hold luggage. I really think they mean oil and industrial paints, not acrylics, but I didn't want to risk it, so all my carefully packed supplies came out again and I left the paints behind, but then decided I couldn't live without some. There's a Blicks nearby (much closer than Michaels!)...

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
