Exhausted by Stupidity

I was playing with this weeks technique for the Altered Playing Card challenge and found it lots of fun, so I decided to create a couple of tags as well, while I had all the bits & pieces out.

"Think Pink" 
is the theme at this week's
"Painted Background"
is the theme at the Stampotique Challenge #180

I started with a blank size 8 manilla tag.  After using Tim Holtz' "splatters" stencil and some Impasto Medium, I then waited for it to dry before sponging Kaisercraft "hot pink" paint over the whole tag.  While it was still wet, I then used a baby wipe to wipe the paint off which revealed the stencilled areas.  Once that was dry, I then added just a smear of the same paint for a bit more contrast as well as dipping a lid in the paint to create circles.

I stamped "Gooseneck" from Stampotique onto ivory cardstock twice, cutting around the first image and just around her dress on the second image.  The bottom of her dress is popped onto dimensionals while the bodice is glued directly onto the first image. 

I gave her dress a little more sparkle with my new 'black' Wink of Stella pen and also outlined the words in the same way.

I added pink washi tape for Gooseneck to stand on, as well as another piece beneath the word 'exhausted'.  Gooseneck is popped onto dimensionals.  A piece of ribbon finishes off the tag.

I think this technique will be getting played with a lot more .......
Happy Crafting!

  2. Love your tag, Helen, and its perfect for both challenges! Great paint color, and I love (but don't have) Wink of Stella in black! Love tall and lanky "Gooseneck," too, and she is just perfect here. Way to go!
