Tag Tuesday challenge

I thought I'd have a change from cards today and also play around with a set of NBUS stamps and my mixed media stash.  Tag Tuesday had a challenge to incorporate the theme ANIMALS into a tag.  I wanted to use an Altenew set of stamps that hadn't seen an ink pad and make a baby tag - this is definitely not a cute tag but it did get me playing with lots of different bits and pieces from my stash.

I cut a tag from a piece of card I'd kept for recycling and covered in white gesso before adding some spotted tissue paper that had come with one of the Artful Days goodies box I bought a while back. I then used one of my Stamploration stencils and some texture paste.  When this was dry the stencil was placed over the hearts and inked up in pink.  To tone down the white of the tissue paper I mixed some gesso with ink from a green ink pad.  The animals and sentiments were stamped and cut out and added to the tag before inking the edges of the tag.  It might not be my best ever work but it was fun playing with everything.
