Another day, another challenge to be faced! :o) Or, in this case, a pair of challenges - The Wednesday Stamper (theme - include the word "art" - it's there if you look hard enough!) and Theme Thursday (theme - "girls").
I've been wanting to use these song words on something for a while, they're taken from "Strange and Beautiful" by Aqualung. My initial plan was to make the tag sleeve from vellum, and that's what I did. It looked fine in real life, but when photographed, it was somewhat difficult to read what the words said, so I remade it in paper.
The tag itself features stamps from Lost Coast Designs, The Queens Dresser Drawers and Just for Fun stamps. The pencils were stamped first in black Versafine, then the detail painted in with a water brush and distress ink pads. They were then masked, and the two girls faces were stamped and painted. The faces were then masked and the background was coloured and spritzed with water. The splatters, stitches and Identification Check stamp were then applied with black Versafine. Finally, the edges were slightly aged with walnut stain distress ink pad applied with cut'n'dry foam.
I hope you like it! Click on any image to enlarge it :o)
