One Little Tag Craft Challenge #76
This tag uses stencils and acrylic paint in a different way. When every I paint with acrylic paint I like to have a layer of gesso to prime the base (in this case a manila tag) so that less acrylic paint is needed and the paint is more predictable.
A manila tag was covered with Gesso. Two colors of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Acrylics were applied to gessoed tag with a scrap of cardboard to give it texture. Colors are Pastel Yellow and Purple Palette. Claudine Hellmuth Studio Acrylics Smidge of Blue was applied over a mask from the Dylusions the Suits stencil. Images from Sideshow Stamps were stamped inside the hearts with Archival Ink Jet Black. The stencil part was used as a way to mask off the image. Pieces of decorative tape were applied to tag.
