Tonight was really a night for experimenting in my studio, and I came up with this canvas tag. I cut it from my bolt of canvas using the Tim Holtz tag die. Then the fun began. The center panel image is from Chapel Road's da Vinci Botanicals - and was stamped using Staz-on ink. I had just gotten the new Faber- Castell Gelatos - and I used them to color the images. To fill in the background, I used Faber-Castell's Big Brush pen - and then misted the whole thing with water. This let my colors spread out in cool watercolor effects. For the tag base, I colored it with Glimmer Mist. Then I sewed the flower panel to the tag base. I used stamps from the Fern set to overstamp the two pieces of fabric. I colored the Gelatos directly to the stamp, misted it with water and stamped. I wrote Spring on the side of the tag, and added some embellishments. For the final touch, I sprayed the floral image with Helmar Vellum adhesive and sprinkled it with a light dusting of glitter. I love getting to play with new goodies! I think I will keep working on some of these techniques much more.
