Behind The Mask

Over at Tag It On, Elizabeth has set the challenge of Behind The Mask. She is wanting to see some paint, stenciling, some text, and at least one real stamp.
Sooo time to break out the Dylusion paints - oh how I wish I had found these before I bought all those dabbers with the lovely (not) dried up paint inside!
This has been painted in a mixture of yellow and green, with a touch of Claudine Hellmuth's Traditional Tan. Then I've stamped the Impression Obsession Cover a Page newspaper stamp in black archival. I've stencilled through a hexagon mask with buttermilk acrylic from a well known DIY store. It's amazing how much more interesting these places are since I discovered their matchpots lol. The gold paint is Eco Green - I love these, I just use my finger to put it on the plastic weave that you use for cross stitch. Note to self, keep the wet wipes handy! Huge thanks to Kate Crane for sharing the tips on this and bottle tops! The birds and the stitching are both Tim Holtz stamps.
My small tag has been stamped and embossed with white, then inked with DI's and stamped over with the Stampin Up 'sanded' stamp. The crown is a brad that I've had in my stash since time began. 
It's been finished off with some Kanban acetate, then stamped over with another from the Artistic Outpost London stamps.  Thanks very much if you've managed to hang in with the verrrry long post, now head over to TIO and share your tag with us.
Thanks very much for looking x

  12. Lovely tags Sue, love the backgrounds.

    Where did you get the Dylusions paints from as I've been told they have been dis-continued and will be being re-formed and re-packaged in a dabber version from Ranger.
