We on 'lots to do forum' take part in making these 'hug' tags and Hilda our leader puts them together in little booklets, then sends them to a member who needs a hug.
After gesssoing the cards I stencilled through punchinella with colourwash spray. When dry I applied some more gesso and repeated the procces. I had a heart stencil which I'd cutfor my Graffiti journal using the Cricut, so used this to spray through, patting with kitchen roll to lighten it. I stamped through the heart with a cript stamp. I used oil pastels to outline the hearts giving them a shadow effect. The little hearts were also colour washed and stuck down with glossy accent. 'hugs'was printed on the computer and 'embedded' on to the tags using oil pastels. I love the effect I get when using these pastels and look forward to incuding them in my journal pages.
Thankyou for stopping by
hugs Joy xx
