Sneak Peek

No I haven't been curled up in the foetal position pining for my boy. Even though we have had a couple of distress calls from a lonely, hungry and slightly panicky son. I keep reminding myself that its all about allowing your offspring to grow and learn to fend for themselves. So I have immersed myself in a little bit of creativity ready for our trek down to Matisse for their open day. Would you like a little sneak peek??? Do I hear a yes? OK, here is a little sample of the wooden tags, eight in total, that were done using Matisse inks only for the back grounds. Over the next few weeks I'll post one here and there just so I can tease you a little.
This one started off with just a black background. I then stamped and embossed the trees and celebrate with silver and used a versamark pen to add touches of glitter to the tips of the trees. You probably can't see this in the photo. I then sprayed iridescent ink and water over and dried with heat gun. Give it a little rub back with a sanding block. Again its a little difficult to see the iridescent in the photo. Add a little bling and a rusty star and you're done.
