This fab tag just oozes character and of course texture.
To start I chose 3 Distress Oxide colours and placed some of the palest colour onto a non porous surface (I used my POLY MOUNT for this it's the perfect size!) and spritzed it with water.
I then dabbed my tag into it. when I was happy with the colour I heat set it using my heat gun then repeated with the following two colours, one colour at a time.
Using one of the Distress Oxides used to create the base of my Tag I stamped the larger of the sketch line in it randomly over the tag.
Again using one of the base colours I stamped the Harlequin in 2 opposite corners.
Onto a spare piece of white card I stamped FUN-Gus
Onto it I used a Brusho spray and sprayed the top in red and the base in yellow
To add more texture to Gus I stamped the distressed panel over the base and added some extra MINI Dots to the top. I then added some more colour to base using Distress Oxides as paint.
Next I placed it onto my tag and stamped some Mini Solid Bubbles in the background as flowers in a different Distress Oxide colour.
I then dried this using a heat gun and added some doodles using a white Gelly Roll Pen.
Around the edge of the Tag I stamped the smaller Sketch line using Versafine - Vintage Sepia.
Lay Gus back onto the Tag to help with the positioning of the text and stamp that in Versafine - Black.
To finish off my tag I found some lovely yellow ribbon and distressed it using Distress Oxides and tied it to my Tag, and attached Gus using Foam tape, I then added some Glossy Accents to Gus's spots and warts.
I just love how this one turned out it's just so bright and vibrant!
