Summer Tag

 The latest challenge over on Tag Tuesday is anything goes.  I had been hoarding a piece of gelli plate clean up paper which made the perfect background for this tag.

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 Boating Rounds set from Clarity Crafts 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.
Before shading

After shading.
The NDC Summer stamp (#117) from Clarity 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.

Beautiful and unusual tag, love it! I'm glad I'm not the only one who hoards pieces of paper which might be useful sometime! Thanks for linking to Tag Tuesday, hugs, Valerie
