Ok, I know I did 5 tags as part of my Big Picture Classes on making the most out of Gesso so I thought I was done but I forgot I had doubled up on one class so I still had a lesson left. As with all the tags I will be making this year, this tag has two elements:
- My New Technique – Embossing with Gesso
- Stash Used – Clarity Stamps and Watercolour Pencils.
I love watercolour pencils, maybe even more than Alchol Ink Pens. ButI find pens easier to use with stamping, so as a result I don’t tend to use them as much as I’d like to.
The last couple of tags have used the Gesso to provide texture, this tag usings textured cardstock which is Gesso’d. But it meant I could not just scrape the Gesso over the tag with a credit card, so I used a paint brush (you don’t need much as it will pool unevenly over the design).
Once dried, I got out the Watercolour pencils. I always have a small spray bottle with water in it to hand, so I sprayed the tag with a light mist of water. Before colouring most of the tag with small blobs of pencil.
I wanted an “evening sky” colour scheme so I could use this month’s Clarity Club Stamp, which is a Housemartin. I lover Clarity Stamps, they are very thick and etched deeply. Look at how clear this design is.
