Key to my Dreams Tag (by Shilpa)

Hello everyone, Shilpa here, glad to be back with my new large mixed media tag.

I've used Chocolate Baroque Key to my Dreams stamp set.
To create this background, first I adhered a few pieces of masking tape. I applied a thick layer of white gesso, creating texture. Next I used spray inks and Distress Paints in purple, green, blue and green randomly, untill I was satisfied, drying the layers inbetween.

I stamped the key and sentiment with black Archival ink, and coloured it with thin gold paint. I attached them to the tag with foam adhesive for dimension and my tag was ready.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and your support. Shilpa.
