Dream Big!

I've gone for warm pink and orange tones on this tag.  Working onto glossy cardstock I first brayered with a Big N Juicy pad.  Once dry I firstly stamped the Art House (creative Expressions) in Plum Archival directlly on the tag... but the background colour meant that the detail of the design just got lost...  so I stamped again onto white and then traced some of the detail with my black fineliner.  I then cut out and mounted over the top of my first stamp attempt.  Having learnt that perhaps plum wasn't the best colour to show up - I switched to black to stamp the Dream Big and the postmark (both from the Art Houses set too).  I added a few hand-drawn cross-hatch marks with my fine liner and after rounding the top corners with a punch, I added my dash line border.  As a final touch I worked with my Crafters Workshop Mask and my white gel pen to add a few circle details - it was just enough to give it the oomph it needed!

This was another result from my (not so) grumpy crafting session... More tomorrow!
