Monster Madness

My Monster Mash-up

Good morning lovelies.......

It's my turn to make something for Roc Nicholas' Design Team today, I always look forward to this....

I decided to make a tag (size 12), using a selection of Roc's stamps, which you can find here

I began by colouring the tag using various colours of Tim Holtz Distress Inks using a round blending tool. I just love how the colours blend so well together.  I added some translucent texture paste onto the tag, then to add some more depth I used some white texture paste too.
When everything was dry, I used some background stamps and stamped in similar colours, just to create some interest.

This tag was made because I truly couldn't decide which of Roc's stamps to use; so I cut several of them out and coloured them in using the Distress inks and a waterbrush.

 I arranged the pieces together on my craft mat and took a photo of the layout once I was happy with it, so I didn't forget how I wanted it - my memory is awful!!!

 Once everything was coloured in I started sticking it to my tag. Once the glue was dry, I drew around the outline of my monster using a permanent black pen.

The stamps I have used are:

 I hope you have enjoyed my tag today. Please, leave a message and say 'hi', I'd love to hear from you.............

Happy crafting xoxoxox
