Watercolour Tag

Hi Everyone,

It has been a little while since I shared a tag on the blog.  I have been having fun playing with watercolours lately.  I already had this tag that had been embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder so I created a watercolour background.  There are lots of watercolour products around but for this tag I used a set of watercolour paints called Koh-I-Noor.    These can give you a really vibrant effect or you can tone the colour down with more water.  There really is a difference in the effect you get with different products so is worth having a play to see what you like.   I used some purples, blues and greens to create the background for my tag.

When it was dry I added a little more colour to some areas with distress inks and inked the edges with Black Soot distress ink.  I stamped one of the stamps from the Just My Type set from Flourishes using Peacock Feathers distress ink.  Then I distressed the background a little by using the Invild Bolme Distressing Tool (using the file part of it).  The lace image was stamped with Archival ink.  I added some washi tape, the balloon sticker (from MME Fly Your Wings) and a cloud die cut that had been sitting on my desk.  I created the sentiment using some alphas by Kaisercraft and a stamp that was part of the same Prima set as the lace stamp.  The black and pale green twine is new from MME.

Thanks for stopping by,

Kristy
