Well I feel that haven't blogged a tag for a while and the rogue redheads challenge is distressed greens and i love crafting with green distress, so , here is one:
I started with various greens, some stencils, gesso and some stamps...
and this tag just evolved..
Started by applying a layer of gesso through the chicken wire stencil,
and left to dry,
then when dry applied DI over the tag and then
stamped some chicken wire randomly
from the mixed media set of Tim stamps
I distressed the edges and inked these...
the wings were cut from old packaging and coloured with alcohol inks.
.I quite like that they are hidden in certain lights/ angles
I love,love this dress form and applied black soot embossing powder
on the main part of the dressform and then
added a canvas dress ,inked with DI.
to complete I added a heart, some ribbon , harlequin border
and a flower made from the tatteredd floral die.
I love all the textures and layers and although I am embracing colour,
I love working in monochrome.
Are you a colour person..or do your prefer muted, distressed or monochrome?
