June Tag

This month at Creative Ariste we are being sponsored by the fabulous Decoart who are offering a prize of Decoart goodies to one lucky winner.



I decided to use a technique which the lovely Di Oliver taught us at the Ministry of Mixology retreat last year, using Decoart Premium Acrylics and an Embossing folder. 

I repeated the technique using a Carabelle studio embossing folder that I bought at the retreat. I also added gel medium and Ecoline inks. I cut strips of material and stamped them and coloured them with Ecoline pens to create the string for the tag. I also stencilled areas of colour.
I took some small ampersand clayboard pieces and stamped them using part of a Carabelle stamp. I painted with Ecoline inks and when they were dry I scratched details back to the clayboard. I also stamped the word, "Creativity", on the tag.
I actually love this piece (rare for me!) I hope you do too!
Happy Crafting,
Denyse
