Marleen DT - Backdrop

Hello Blogger friends..

Once again wednesday and my turn to share some inspiration.

For today Ive had a play with making a tag. Its not something I do very often as I never really know what to do with them, but I absoutly love the shape and the size.

The size of the tag is just one I cut myself. I decided how long I wanted my tag, then how wide, and then measured (so they would be even in both sides) and snipped of the corners.

My tag is 155mm long, 90mm wide.
The corners are cut at 30mm on the length and 25mm in from each side.

For this tag Ive used the following stamps:

You can find them in the STORE with all the other amazing stamps.

This tag is made from water colour card stock and LOTS of paints. The paints are simple acrylic paints from my crafty stash.
I started by stamping my backdrop stamp with versamark and covered with black embossing powder.
Once powder was melted and cooled I started to play with my paints. I used a baby wipe to clean of the stamping between coats of paints.

The greeting is stamped on to the back of water colour card that I had dipped into the left over paints on my craft sheet.

I finised with a strip of hessian, also coated in paint, a wooden heart from my stash a a few half pearls.

And that is all from me for today.
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.
