Fairytale Tag Swap

These tags were made in response to the December tag swap on Junk Journal Junkies and Mindful Art.  The theme was Fairy Tales and I decided to use some of my Sheena Douglass stamps (and a matching die) to create a pair of tags which go together.

As usual I worked on #8 manilla tags and started with a paper towel mop up sheet.  The top layer was added to the tags using matt gel medium  then sealed, dried and trimmed.


I then used my Royal Talens Van Gogh oil pastels to add intensity and colour to the backgrounds. 

I stamped the main image from the Little Red stamp set by Sheena Douglass and also die cut, then stamped the wolf (Spirit of the Wolf/Fierce Spirit) from Sheena's Call of the Wild collection.  These were coloured using Ecoline pens.

Once added to the tags, I sealed the images, dried them and used Faber-Castell Big Brush Markers to add shading around each image. 

Finally, the sentiments were printed onto clear plastic tape using my Dymo Letratag and added to each tag.
