Dance In The Rain - Tag

Hello my lovelies, so good to see you here!!

Today I have a tag to share with you. I was thinking recently that quite often we do Tim Holtz inspired tags, but what would a Finnabair inspired tag look like? So I thought why not have a go...


I started off with a basic Manilla Ranger Tag size 8 and then used two sheets of 7 Dots Studio 6 x6  Cold Country Paper to fit over it. Once down, in place (with Art Basics Soft Gel Medium) and dried, I used a bubble stencil to create my background using Archival's Jet Black Ink



Then over again with Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel to give the circles a slightly raised effect. Whist this was still wet I used Art Extravegance Glitter in Luminous - one of the black ones. I let this dry naturally.

                                       

Next came a little paint to add some colour amongst the 'rain'. I wanted moody but hints of colour. I used Tim Holts Distress Paints in Vintage Photo and Pine Needles, just very lightly and watered down. 



Then... came the goodies! Don't you just love it when you can crack them open, let go and play?!! I love, love, love the Prima/Finnabair Bottle Caps, they are the perfect vessel to hold an explosion of colour and sparkle. In this case I used some larger beads (from my own stash) and graduated back with the size. So next was regular sized seed beads from Art Basics Ingredients and then Art Basics Glitter Glass... 

The black Poppies/Peonies are from Prima's Sculpture Flowers, which started life in yellow, so in came two light coats of Art Basics Black Gesso, then I added in some more black glitter from Luminous Glitter pack. Then I touched the tops with Peacock Feathers Distress Paint, to highlight. 


Then I finished up with this gorgeous sentiment is from 7 Dots Studio Illumination Word Stickers. I LOVE these, I'm not good at stamping a sentiment perfectly (or even imperfectly) as I would like so these are great if you're in the same boat as me, and I will be using them more often in projects and layouts in the future.

Hope you enjoyed today's post. Please check back with us soon to see some fabulous makes and inspiration from our DT and don't forget we have our challenge, up for grabs is a £10 gift voucher for the shop :)

Hugs
Georgie

I have been completely smitten by Prima's latest release. I love the look of that bling in grunged up bottle caps.
