Friends Support Each Other by Lesley Mackenzie

Hi all, Happy New Year . This is my very first blog so wish me luck!

For this months challenge "Anything Goes" so here we go ...

I created a fun tag . The supplies used are; Amsterdam acrylics, Micro beads, The Artistic Stamper stencils and the following Artistic Stamper stamps :-
Birdz Set by Neil Walker
Doodle Bubble Background by Neil Walker
Dog Rose by Lesley Matthewson
Mini Backgrounds #1

Firstly I painted the base background using various shades of greens

The next step was to stencil and stamp the background using hot colours to make the colours pop

 I then stamped the bird images onto plain tissues paper using black StazOn ink. This enables a clear image to be created especially when working on uneven  backgrounds. Simply cut out the printed images and attach to the tag using Matt Medium gel.

I coloured the birds using the same palette as the background, then using 3D Gel I added micro beads to the border and grounded the birds. Next I stamped and fussy cut the flower , and to finish added words, and doodles. My final touch was to loop black and pink ribbons to the top of the tag.

Hope this inspires you and the bright and cheerful colours add a bit of sunshine to your day . See you next month, Lesley
