Slide Mount Tag

Created for the Tag you're It Challenge. The challenge was to use a slide mount on your tag. The backround was sponged with chalk inks in Tea Leaves & Purple Hydrangea, then overstamped with an alphabet stamp in Brilliance Moonlight White. A crackle was added randomly in black, and the tag was then spritzed with gold spray. The slide mount was painted with acrylics - Adirondack pesto and Lumiere violet. A little gold kyron was smudged in too. The word dream was stamped at the base, brass corners & fibres added to embellish.

Created for a new challenge blog. The spring set used Invoke Art stamps on a background of chalk inks (Thatched Straw & Tea Leaves). The Red themed set used an alcohol ink background, with collage images.

Letter stickers stuck onto purple painted paper before being applied. Flowers added to finish.
