Behind the fence

Hi everyone!

    With Artistic Outpost doing an 'Anything Goes' challenge again this month, I couldn't help making another creation to enter the challenge.

Weathered Wood and Gathered Twigs DI were swiped on the mat and spritzed with water with a little Picket Fence DP added. I swooshed the tag around in the ink/paint puddle and dried it - a few more dabs and I was very happy with the result.

I stamped the text stamp from the 'Bluebird' set around the edges with Picket Fence DP

I then stamped the image of the two children from the 'Think and Wonder' set in Potting Soil Archival ink.

Gathered Twigs DI was blended around the edges of the tag which really highlighted the text stamped in white paint.

A die cut edge was painted with French Roast Fresco paint before being covered with a very thin layer of crackle glaze. Snowflake Fresco paint was dabbed with a sponge over the glaze - this gives a finer porcelain style crackle than brushing the paint - which gives more vivid weather worn cracks.

The die cut had Walnut Stain DI blended around the edge and was stuck onto the tag. The edges that weren't needed were added to the top corners (can't waste them!)

Leaf die cuts were inked with Gathered Twigs DI and stuck onto the tag along with the words 'Wonder and think'

 Roses that had been dabbed with Weathered Wood DI were then spritzed with a mix of water and white acrylic paint and then given a further spritz of water.

A twine bow completed the tag 

Thanks so much for being here!
