I’m buzzing by with another tag in the same series that I shared earlier in the week. As with the other two I will be linking this up over at Sunday Stampers for the purple challenge.
As you can see, this is majoring on the purple! I’ve used a mixture of blue, pink and purple distress inks and a variety of stamps to create the background. After the tag was inked, and before I stamped, I spritzed my Alphabet Soup stamp with water and pressed it on to the tag. Once removed I left the water for about 10 seconds and then blotted with kitchen roll and dried with a heat gun. The ink reacts with water so leaves a ghostly impression of the stamp. You can just about make it out in the corner of the photo’ above.
The flower was stamped and heat embossed. The word was stencilled and I added a scribbled border.
It seems appropriate to be sharing this on Roald Dahl Day – it reminds me of Violet Beauregarde blowing up purple after eating the special chewing gum!
Hope you have a happy Saturday and thanks for buzzing by.
