Playing with Tartan!

Hi!!!  This week over at The Craft Barn Blog we are playing with TARTAN!  We can use ribbon, paper...whatever we choose to achieve it.  I have made up my tartan using Pebeo Studio acrylics and a Tando Creative Bamboo Background Mask. First I covered some white card with the Irridescent Green Yellow (this has a gorgeous shimmer) then used the mask to apply Cerulean Blue. When that was dry moved the mask and added Naph Tol Carmine. I added extra lines with a black fineliner.

I used my tartan paper to cover a tag. This has been decorated with some teensy bobble trim and lace from my stash. I also concertina'd some leftover tartan and added to the bottom of the tag. The Crafty Individual robin and a computer generated sentiment finish the tag.

That's another tag done for Christmas hahahaha!!!!!  Thank you for looking, HUGS XXXXX

Beautiful tag honey, I love your master design and how you have used it - brilliant. The contrast of the black and white bird works superbly and that bobble trim is amazing.
