It’s Friday Tag Time

Hi everyone Clare here, which means its Friday and its the weekend whoop whooop!


I am taking the weekend off from my Demonstrator duties, mainly because of Le Tour De Farce as we are calling it up here. They are closing the roads at 6am for the thing and their is several rules and you will get fined if you don’t do it and all sorts of madness so I decided to just get a bottle of Desperado Tequila beer or 2 in with some BBQ bits and pieces and have a nice relaxing day at home!


On to the topic you say! Well here it is. Over on the Challenge Blog we have a new challenge running. Tag you’re it! We already have some wonderful entries from all the lovely and oh so talented followers as well as some gorgeous designs from the Design Team. For my entry I made a quick but complicated looking tag, it actually went faster than I thought, the longest part being drying time.


tag challenge


First I took a splodge of pink iced gems acrylic paint and put it on my craft mat, by splodge I mean a really small splodge on the tip of a spatula. Spritzed lots of water and mixed it with the spatula so it became really runny paint. I then dipped the tag on top of it in several placed and dried. I repeated the same step doing one colour at a time with the banana custard and grandma’s teacup paint. I distressed the edge with vintage photo distress ink and stamped all around the top head of the stylised flowers stamp. I also stamped the stylised flowers in the distress ink in the middle. I splattered on some water, left for 10 seconds and soaked it up with a paper town to create the splatter marks. I then stamped with flitter and gilded the stylised flowers so over the top slightly off set of the original, I used the chariots of fire gold flake. And done.


See, it is really simple but so purdy!

Thanks for visiting
