Serenity Tag Card (by Debbie)

Good morning. I hope everything is good and crafty today. I've certainly been enjoying the festive season with family and friends. I have also managed to enjoy a few hours play time with ink and stamps. These new stamps definitely help to bring a little serenity while working with them, the images are so beautiful.
I started with a large tag shape and stamped the serene lady with Memento Onyx Black which allowed me to colour with alcohol pens. I restricted myself to flesh colours as I wanted to add lots of colour to the background. Before colouring the background I cut a mask of the stamp and laid over the image. For the background I used Mown Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Ripe Persimmon distress ink then spritzed with a little water. I dried with a heat tool and stamped the flowers and blossom with French Ultramarine archival ink. I mounted onto black and found a piece of orange card and trimmed them to the shape of the tag. Many thanks for visiting and I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Debbie

  3. A really super piece of masking & inking - at first I thought the image was cut out & added on top of the background - there's so much dimension with the colourful & busy background making your selective colouring of the image really 'pop.' I particularly like your positioning of Serentiy in the central positioning so that her architrave is echoed by your black matting. A real stunner this one.

  10. A really lovely tag. That riot of colour in the background with the stamped flowers lets the main image stand out, and these images are so detailed they look great just as they are, or in this case with just a little added colour. A very clever bit of masking.
