Good morning, how's your week going? My week off is going a bit too quickly for my liking but I've got loads done in the garden so I'm having a play day today! This mornings project is a tag made using the technique featured in this months Craft Stamper Take it Make it Challenge which is Monoprinting with an acrylic block.
I had a lovely messy play with my acrylic paints and a large acrylic block and ended up with a heap of backgrounds, I chose this one to work with and added some stamping with black archival ink using stamps from Stampendous and also stencilled in some dots using a template and picked raspberry distress ink. I wasn't sure it would work too well as the paint was really thick but so far so good. I used some scraps of the background to paper piece the Prima Doll stamp, using one of the background stamps for her tights and finished off colouring her in with Graph'It Markers.
Her wings and the sentiment are stamps from Paper Artsy, I brushed her wings with a little pink mica powder, you've got to have a bit of sparkle on your wings lol.
I popped the image and sentiment on the tag with cosmic shimmer glue and then added some shading with a Derwent Pastel pencil, ooooh I love this effect and will definitely be using it again.
I'm also entering this tag in the following challenges:
Crafting for all seasons: no designer paper
Paper Pretties: make your own background
Have a good day and thanks for popping by today
