Good Morning! We have some amazing inspiration coming your way today!
First up on the blog today is Lisa Taggart sharing a stunning tag…
I’m back today sharing a mixed media tag made using the Skull Shadow stencil and some of the new stamps from Visible Image.
For this project I also used : An mdf tag; Sheena stamping card; ink sprays in teal, green and metallic bronze ; foils in teal and copper; pebeo foiling gel; black embossing powder; versamark ink; Amsterdam black and white acrylic pens; copper wire ;complimentary ribbons; metal gears and irredescent pink gem.
To begin I lined the tag with the stamping card. This was then sprayed randomly using the sprays. Rather than spray through the stencil I decided to spray green ink on to the stencil and use like a stamp to create the skull impression. I did this a couple of times so the skull shape stood out from the background. I also highlighted the shape using black and white pens and did a little shading around the edges using brown ink.
The focal point is the eye. I heat embossed in black the cracked glass stamp over the eye socket. Using the gel adhesive I highlighted some areas around the crack, splinters and the teeth. When clear I cold foiled using copper foil. I also added some white highlights.
I decided to add the metal gears and gem.
Using the organics stamp set I selected a couple of elements and like before stamped in black. This time I foiled on top using teal foil. I also wound some wire around the bottom and along the side of the tag for added texture.
I stamped the ‘fragile’ sentiment onto inked card and added some white highlights . I wound more wire through the hole at the top of the tag along with some ribbon.
Reminds me of a pirate!
Hope you like it. Till next time!
