Tag for October Craft Stamper blog challenge

Hope your weekend has went well. In Southern Finland rain has been pouring all weekend, giving me the perfect excuse to postpone garden work and to spend time at my crafting table :)

On Friday started the new Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge. Our generous sponsor, IndigoBlu, has given an amazing prize which will be sent to one lucky winner: Three gorgeous stamp sets! Really worth playing for, isn't it!

My take on the 'Anything Goes' challenge is a layered mixed media tag:

I started with decorating the background with a pattern stamp, masking some areas with paper strips. Then I colored the background with a few Distress Oxide colours, picking up the water-sprayed colours from my craft mat.

Before gluing down the stamped and colored main image, I added a thin layer of yellow and orange acrylic paint on the tag, and decorated it with a stencil and white acrylic paint. The orange colour is not exactly the same than what I used on the girl's shirt, but quite close to it. For coloring the stamped image (design by Daniel Torrente, for Stampotique) I used my new favourite pens, Zig Clean Colors. They're fabulous to use!
