I stamped my Dylusions border stamps with "Versamark" ink then swiped over with my Pan pastels, sealed with some cheapo hairspray, I then stamped the stripy background again with Versamark and swiped over this time with the gorgeous "Metallic" pan pastels various colours, these have given a beautiful subtle shimmer in the background but really picked up the shimmer more on the stripes, the photo really doesn't do the tag justice! The image is a "Banksy" inspired stamp from Beecrafty!
This tag I used Pans again in "Dairylide yellow tint" then using the fabulous Premium Art Brands "A5 Victorian mask" I only used parts of it in the corners, using "Dairylide yellow and oxide green shade pan pastel"
The stamps are Jofy by Paperartsy! I stamped with Archival ink, then painted using pan pastels mixed with a bit if water, then added highlights with Coloursoft pencils, I decoupaged the flowers and leaves on! I hope you like my tags? And they have inspired you to give it a go?
Many thanks for visiting my long blog today xx
