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.
