Goodly Morning Stampfans - already it is Tuesday which means that it is time for my weekly DT offering. This week I have been playing with those gorgeous Indigo Blu stamps again, mixing them with some Dylusions Masks, Distress Stains and some Archival Inks.
I started my tag by stamping the Dandelion with Snow Cap Dabber - this creates a really cool resist effect. A quick zap with a heat tool to dry the paint and then a good spritz of water right over the whole tag. Using three Distress Stains, I pounced these onto the wet tag, the Stain mixes with the water and gives a really nice splotchy effect. I stood the tag up so the Stains/water mix could run downwards and then dried it with a heat tool. Once dried, I used two different Dylusions masks and blended Distress Ink through them to get the dotty and diamond design... and then a different colour DI blended around the edge through the flower bit of the mask. I made a second piece of card using the same background technique for the butterfly and the sentiment to be stamped onto. Using Jet Black Archival to stamp these and then cutting out and edging. I added some more stamping to the bottom of the tag using Viridian and Jet Black Archival Inks.
The finishing touches are some DewDrops on the butterfly and at the top of the tag and a smidge of Idea-ology and pearl embellies. The Ingredients I used are:
