Just for fun tag

Posted by Picasa


This weeks challenge over at Just for fun is mixed media so I hope this fits the bill!
I've been playing with my new colour wash ink sprays from Dylusions and just love them. haven't quite got the hang of them yet as I'm a bit heavy handed so the orange has disappeared and the greens have taken over, but I quite like the colour. I also tried the ghosting technique with my alphabet stencil. The circles are made with a bottle top dipped in acrylic pain. The House is a download. I stamped hearts and flowers on to text from a book which I sprayed with inks, and cut out. They are part of a lovely set of stamps from Aud design. The text is computer generated. I aged the silver key with a black copic marker. I really enjoyed making this tag and can't wait to delve into my new acrylics!
Thanks for stopping by
