Hi all, at last I have managed to get inky, I'm starting to feel like crafting again and it's great lol. Last night I decided to swoosh some distress stains around on a tag, now I haven't used my stains before so this was rather new lol. After some distress stains, distress ink and some spray I had finally got a background I liked lol.
Before I show some pictures I would like to enter the following challenges ......................

My background from playing, I used distress stains
straight on the tag, then I added stains to my craft mat and
swooshed the tag through them, then I re put more stains on
the mat and added picket fence. Then I edges with distress inkpads,
then sprayed with radiant rain for a hint of sparkle.
I'm really pleased with the final tag, I which the tissue paper that I stamped
the main flowers and bottles on were lost in the tag more, normally they
do but I guess I did something differently lol. I embossed the tag in places with
swirls, then I added embossing powder on top after inking with distress inkpad.
I randomly stamped flowers, dots and chevrons everywhere.
I stamped the bottles on tissue paper with archival jet black then modpodged
them on the tag, when I decided what flowers I wanted I also stamped them
on tissue paper but on the back coloured with promarkers. I then decided I wanted
the bottles coloured to be green so I coloured on top with a promarker, but
it didn't show very much so I used my sharpie pens which I forgot I had.
The white is with my new sharpie paint marker, so loving this lol
I stuck book paper down before adding bottles but then I didn't like the
whiteness, so I went over with a sharpie yellow followed by modpodge,
but that was too bright so I smudged orange sharpie marker with a tissue.
The markers spread because of the modpodge already down so you get
a few seconds to blend it in :-)
Right I'm off to watch some telly and do a bit of crochet, ooooo let me show you my first crochet flower, I have been teaching myself crochet over the last few weeks :-)
Right I'm definitely off now, I shall be catching up with everyone over the next few days, I finally can't wait to comment and catch up which is a change from not wanting to talk or do anything due to stress lol.
All details of what I used are below.
Happy Crafting :-)
