This is my tag for the The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog challenge for June. The theme of the challenge is 'Colour it red'.
To make this tag I started my creative the background. To do this I used my Gelli Plate, PaperArtsy Claret Fresco Finish paint and a rubber texture comb. I spread the paint onto the Gelli Plate and then added the lines with the rubber comb. I then took a print from the Gelli Plate directly onto the tag, as shown below.
Once the background was dry I added the other textures and stamping. To start I added the white chevrons. To do this I used The Artistic Stamper's 6x6 Chevron mask and PaperArtysy Snowflake Fresco Finish paint. Once this was dry I stamped Random Dot Background and Calligraphic Mat 11 stamps with a Jet Black Archival ink pad randomly onto the tag.
I then added some of the Claret paint to some Grunge Paint. I added this to the tag through Tim Holtz's Burlap stencil. I stamped the wording in Aged Mahogany Distress Ink onto white card. The wording is from Messy Art stamp set. I tore the edges of the wording card and then added it to the tag. I sewed a row of stitching with red thread down the edge of the wording.
