Tando Tag

Hello everyone, I would like to share a project which featured on the recent One Day Special shows on Hochanda.

I have used a large Tando Greyboard Tag, which I covered with a piece of watercolour paper, that I had coloured myself, using Distress Inks, left over from a previous project. I stamped the background with a sentiment from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle stamp set, using Black Archival Ink. I then used a couple of images from the Silhouette Grasses stamp set, to build up a collaged effect, using a combination of Olive and Siena Archival Ink. I added some Fossilzed Amber Distress Ink around the edges of the tag.

I then coloured three pieces of 2" x 2" Tando Twinchies with Yellow, Orange, and Lime Green Brushos, and added three layers of clear Ultra Thick Embossing powder. I stamped into the last layer each time while it was still soft, using some of the foliage images, and then brushed a small amount of gold mica powder over the top. I attached the Twinchie pieces to the tag, and added a piece of co-ordinating ribbon to the tag.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

The way your twinchies backgrounds echo the tag background is lovely - it's that fluidity that is so noticeably characteristic of water based media. The stamped text in different directions is a super idea & adds lovely interest & the interplay between dark & light works superbly. As always your layout is instructive in terms of design.
