It’s my turn today to share a little Easter make. I was away, with limited craft supplies, so had to think about this one!
I took one of Tando’s plastic tags, which are a fab material to work with, and take paint very well. I coloured in a pale green first on one side, then stippled the whole tag with green gold.
I used hansa yellow medium next, and then stamped a leaf in diarylide yellow as a background all over.
Next I took a Nathalie Kalbach stencil from her ‘Marks’ stamp set, it comes free in the set. It had some rough edged circles, which I love and thought they would work well. I used primary magenta mixed with tinting base to lay some circles down.
I went back in with the same stencil, and cobalt teal hue mixed with tinting base again, and added more circles.
I then took a fine paintbrush, and added patterns to each circle, in opposite colours, to look like easter egg patterns.
My final step was to take a white acrylic pen, and ‘elongate’ the circles with scribbles, to make them more egg shaped.
On top of that I added a few white spatters all across the tag in tinting base.
And here is my Easter Tag!
Hope you like it.
