I started with a large tag and painted over it with the Lin Brown Limited Edition frescos. I then stamped with black archival using PA ID07 stamps.
I then smeared some Vaporub onto parts of it, thought that it was a good substitute for Vaseline. I painted over with Chutney and tried to hurry up the drying process with the heat gun which was typically stupid of me because it just melted it more!
Anyway, the morning after I rubbed it and got pleasing results. I grungepasted through a stencil. it is supposed to say "You really can do whatever you want" but I jiggled it round a bit.
Then I painted some flowers with Little Black Dress and added TG white fire. I painted another flower with Chartreuse and TGd it. I highlighted my lettering with TGold and white pen and added feathers to the "hat" of the shameless hussy at the top.
I enjoyed playing and shall have another play with this technique. Thanks Liesbeth. Your work has been memorable.
Can smell the vaporub from here... that was such fun last night on twitter! The finished tag looks fabulous, love the colour, they work so well together, and your stencilled lettering is lovely!ReplyDelete
