Large Tag - I thought I would create a grungy tag that featured my nephew have a lovely quite time with my beautiful granddaughter Amelia. I started by adding a coloured wash to the base with yellows, oranges and sepia tones. Using the diamond stencil, randomly apply over the base and allow to dry so that base colours seep into the paste used for the stencil. Use Tim Holtz brown distress oxides to add some grungyness to the background and cut the bright colours. Add random strips of paper to the base. Paint the different chipboard pieces apply a light rub of bronze wax to added a aged look. For the wings, use Tim Holtz distress oxides to add some grungyness. Add the words and randomly stamp a diamond pattern onto the background remembering to make sure that the stamp is coming from underneath the main features. Add bronze micro beads underneath the main pieces and along the strips of paper that are showing.
