Tag It On

The challenge at Tag it On this week is Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium. My challenge to myself was to do it without any cutting and sticking or 3d 'stuff'.
I started by using some TH masks inking with various distress inks. Lots of stamps, mainly Scrollswork stamped in distress and coffee and black archival.
The main images were stamped on tissue paper and torn (see not cut lol)  out and stuck down with watered down pva.
I've used black and white acrylic paints and various lids from my evergrowing lid collection to paint the circles.
The edges have been distressed then rubbed aroung with green and gold Inca Gold, and finally I coated it all in beeswax to give it a bit of shine and texture. The poor old tag had taken all it could manage by now, so I backed it up on some black card and gave it a bit of raffia lol.
I really enjoyed making this, and thanks very much for looking x
