Lying in bed... tag!

It's been a while since I posted on the Creative blog... life and all that seems to be catching up with me at the moment.. I would love nothing more than to spend some time lying in bed..... but.. read on!!!!

I used one of the Ranger Inkssentials Giant Craft Tags No 12 Size Manila Ranger Inkssentials Giant Craft Tags No 12 Black for my art tag..

The background was created using different colours of Tim Holtz Distress Paints and toned down using some white acrylic.. I then stamped the Journey Collage stamp by Stampotique Originals onto the background using Jet Black Archival Ink..

The gorgeous girlie is from Stampotique Originals and is called Arty.. she has to be one of my all time favourite stamps along with the sentiment.. Lying in bed!! Also, stamped on my tag is Jo Capped-Sandon's gorgeous stamp called Splatter long.. Please note Vicki can order you ANY Stampotique stamp!

To colour in the image I used a combination of Derwent Graphitint and Inktense pencils.. I can see me using these a lot.. I love how you can mix them with water to give a gorgeuos watercolour effect.. I couldn't finish a tag off without using some gorgeous Washi tape.. this one is one of the Smash, black dots tape!

Right, off to find a very long pencil!

Have a lovely day, thank you for calling, Gez
