Here is what Mariette had to say:
As a result of being one of the top 3 nominations of the Monochromatic challenge I have been asked if I wanted to create an inspirational piece for the current Tag challenge. I feel honored and I hope I will be able to inspire you with this tag to join this challenge!
For this tag you will start with adhering a thin and irregular layer of white gesso onto a Ranger manila tag, Once dry add Distress Strains Salty ocean and Moved lawn on to it and spray it with water. Remove some ink and water with a kitchen towel at the spot where you want to add the flowers, and dry it with a heat tool.
Stamp the poppy twice with Archival black using the masking technique. Color in the poppies with Distress ink Picked rasberry with a water brush and add some splatters onto the background. On the bottom of the tag stamp the grass/flower border with Archival black and Distress ink Moved lawn.
The tiny butterflies are from the Blazing Poppies stamp and I just inked up only the butterfly with a black distress marker and stamped it 3 times.
To create some depth add some extra Distress Moved lawn to the bottom of the tag with a blending tool and some Vintage photo around the rest of the edges.
The stamps used are:
- Poppy Meadow (A5 set)
- Blazing Poppies (A6 single)
