Dragons Dream TIO Challenge #151

Evening everyone. 

The challenge set over on the Dragons Dream Tag It On Challenge is for 
"words, layers, brown, die cuts and some stamping somewhere'

So here is the tag that I came up with.

Those of you that regularly purchase tags from PaperArtsy will know that one of the tags has printing on it with the description re size / amount etc etc on one side. 

I tore a mask from a piece of card to lay over the word "TAGS" and painted the rest with 3 coats of gesso. 
Whilst it was wet, I mixed 'cinnamon' fresco paint with a blob of gesso and used a fan brush to create the background. I left it to dry naturally all day to give some texture to the base. 

Then simply stamped over with an ink blot stamp from Inky Doodles using whatever ink pads came to hand at the time. 

I die cut 2 smaller tags using a quickcutz die in the big shot. This had previously been painted with the remaining cinnamon / gesso mix left over from the main tag. 

To finish, I added 2 layers of tissue paper and some some stamped ink blots.

Then added 2 pieces of jute. 

I'd like to enter this into this week TIO challenge 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today
