Hats and More Hats: A Tag

The latest challenge over on Tag Tuesday is Hats and I thought this tag fitted the bill perfectly.

I decided to work directly onto a #8 manilla tag using three of the larger stamps from Hats 1 and Hats 2 by Clarity.  Having worked out the composition, I stamped the first hat, masking off the face when inking up.  This was heat embossed in clear embossing powder.

I trimmed the matching mask, added it to the hat only and added a second hat below, masking off the face before inking in the same way as before.  This was then embossed and masked off too.
For the third hat, I used the whole stamp, inking and embossing in the same manner as before.
I used a black embossing pen and clear powder to finish the brim of the second hat.
I coloured the heads and hats using a mixture of Derwent Inktense pencils blended out with a watercolour brush and Kuretake watercolour pens.
I coloured the background in the same manner.
To finish,  I hand wrote a sentiment in the same manner as before.
