Fresco Tag

Hello! it's my pleasure to be let loose again to share another project with you. Mindful of the upcoming festivities I have made a simple tag that can be easily converted into a card or party invitation or gift tag and easily replicated if you, like me, have lots to make! It's a little hard to photograph but I used metallic paint as highlights.
I started by painting a tag with very watery paint.
I then mixed some watery white paint and painted the tag. I just wanted to give a hint of the white paint so I patted it dry.
The tag then has a nice painty texture. I ended the tag to reveal the tag beneath to add even more interest to the background.
Then I stamped the images as per the main image at the top of this post with the bauble stamped again on white card. Again, I painted the bauble with watered down paint, with more paint added to where the natural shadows would be.
As a final flourish I added painted highlights which really catch the light - even if they're hard to photograph!
Thank you, as always, for popping by.
