Sail Away on a Summer's Day: Journal Tag

This tag was made for the current challenge on the That's Crafty Challenge Blog: A Summer's Day.  I had a piece of gelli plate clean up paper which made the perfect background.
I added the clean up sheet to a #8 manilla tag (to view original project see HERE).  It was sealed with matte medium, dried and trimmed.
On a separate sheet of card, I stamped the sailing boat stamp from the Adjust the Sails set (Claritystamp) in Majestic Blue Versafine ink.  It was heat embossed with clear EP, then coloured in using my Royal Talens Ecoline pens.
Once fussy cut, the image was added to the tag.  I sealed the water colouring using Distress Glaze then used the Cobalt Green big brush marker (Faber-Castell) to add shading.

The NDC Summer stamp from Claritystamp was added directly onto the tag (same method as the previous stamping) and coloured in using the same big brush marker.
One of the Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers completed the piece.
