Garden of Dreams tag !

Hello, it's Sue here and today I'm sharing a tag using lots of stencilling and some of the new JOFY stamps.

I started by covering a jumbo manilla tag with some paper from the new PaperArtsy Chatsworth collection. I then gave it a coat of Matt Medium to protect it from the paint I've then used. 

I used one of the stamps from the Lin Brown 07 set and stamped using Snowflake Fresco Finish paint.

 I then watered down some Tikka Fresco Finish paint and washed it over the tag, this knocks back the stamping but still allows it to show through.

I then used Lin Brown's 002 stencil and stencilled some leaves using Snowflake Fresco Finish paint.

I gave the tag a further wash with watered down paint and this time used Chartreuse as well as Tikka.

I brushed some Chutney Fresco Finish around the edges and then used the JOFY mini 33 and 34 stamps.

I painted the flowers and grass with Fresco Finish paints and added the white dots using my Sharpie pen. I stmaped some extra flowers onto some painted card and cut them out.

The sentiment is also stamped onto some painted card and I've also painted the words. I then sponged some Autumn Fire and Brown Shed Fresco Finish paint around the corners. The ribbon is seam binding that I've also painted with watered down Fresco Finish paint.

Thanks for stopping by.
