More humour at Countryview Crafts

Hello there! I have another post for you today hopefully inspiring you to join us at Countyview Challenges where the theme this month is humour! I have used a stamp from the same paperartsy set as on the 1st....zinski-art-set-22 and used them and paint to make a tag.

Below are the main steps I made in making the tag. First I got my fingers dirty and did some finger painting. I used acrylic paints from Indigoblu in colours grandmas teacup, park lane and kingfisher blue.

Next I used the same paints and some Trish Latimer stamps to do some background stamping.

Whilst this was drying I painted my stamped image and then fussy cut it.

Next I went back to the tag and added some black ink using the same stamps.

Finally I added the image onto the tag and also added some words! This technique is that used in a Trish Latimer workshop that I went to earlier this year - I just love the effect!

I do hope you can join us in this theme - you can link your makes here.

I would like to enter this into craftstamper take-it-make-it-challenge-may
