I started with these yummy coloured paints and 'splotched' layers of the first 4 colours onto the tag.
Next I used the bubble stencil with the grape paint (yes very bold I know). When the grape was dry I 'bumped' the stencil and applied the sage over top. Then when that layer was dry the whole tag got a really good sanding to show off the underneath layers and to soften and blend everything. I LOVE this effect. I learnt this technique from a video I watched on Art of Craft. I then inked the edges & drew on some faux stitching.
I'm very pleased with how this has turned out, and LOVE this technique. I'm sure I'll be using it again.
Have you visited my fellow designers yet, as usual we have all created something totally different to each other, I'm really loving being part of such a talented, versatile group. Please leave a comment, I love to hear your feedback.
