Dance tag


I saved this rather lovely tag from one of our DS jumpers. It's very substantial, so would take to being altered with no problem. I often save tags, along with acetate and cardboard from packing! Tags are quicker to use and save money from buying or time from die cutting/ or punching from card.

Using a palette knife I applied 2 layers of  thick, (mixed my myself)), brown acrylic pain followed by a layer of Gesso.

Then came the Peacock and Pumice Stone DI and Paper Artsy Fresco paint, again paint applied with a palette knife.

Then I stamped and embossed the dancer, I think she's a Scroll Works stamp. Grounded the dancer with brown paint.  

Then tried several layouts, using flowers, Stamped, masked and stamped and heat embossed a male face for the dancer to gaze into ....  not happy so left it overnight. No Offence meant to the Angel Knight from Elusive Images.

Following day I decided to re-stamp and emboss the dancer, fussy cut and thus add dimension. On a computer  I generated she loved Dancing scroll, fussy cut and positioned in a corner to the other corner a cream ceramic flower, lace and grey ribbon - quite happy now !!

I am submitting this into Craft Room Challenge - Dance
