Tag along with FSC

Well today starts for real as a DT member of .fashionable stamping challenges team and what a talented team of ladies I am joining there is some amazing work from the team, so I feel very proud to work along side them. So here it is my first official DT post for this fortnights challenge which is
Which as I am sure you can guess this is a make a tag challenge. As this is a stamping challenge your tag must feature rubber stamping on your project. 
I started by covering a No. 8 size tag with paperartsy fresco paints in yellow submarine and butternut and Tim's "Rays" stencil.
Stamps used are Andy Skinners "Sideshow" & "Circus"
Tim Holtz "Oddities"
I have stamped the hand from Oddities and the eye triangle from Sideshow onto white paper and cut out to stick to the tag. The eye I have then covered in glossy accents which has domed just like a real eye which unfortunately I can't capture on the picture.
I stamped on the painted background with Saffron archival ink before sticking my cut images on.
Finishing touches Tim Holtz remnant rubs - numbers
Washi tape admit one and stars.
Please pop over and see the design teams amazing tags and come and join in with us this fortnight 
see you soon

  11. Amanda, again, a big CONGRATS! for you new DT gig! I know you are thrilled, but they also are very lucky to have you on their team!! A great project right out of the barn! Love your tag!! First, the color palette is definitely vintage, as are many of your elements. A big score in my personal book! Love the subtlety of the "rays" in the background, too. So well choreographed, my friend! Mwah! KayW
