Green Man Spring Tag




Stamps Used:
The Man is from Mannen 1 Plate SW113
The Maple Leaf is from Foliage Plate CP05
The Letters are from the October Crow Alphabet SWQ 13051

Morning all, Mark here and for the last week we have been enjoying some nice bright days and it feels like spring is right around the corner and I felt like creating a little spring time tag.
I used a media board from Tando-Creative and base coated the tag with some white acrylic paint. I stamped the man with black archival ink and added washes of colour around him using the decoart fluid acrylics. Using the masking technique Black Dragon shared HERE earlier this month I stamped my Maple Leaves with green archival ink. The chap was painted with very watered down fluid acrylics and the 'Spring Time' was stamped with black archival ink.
The whole tag was finished with a couple of coats of satin varnish and edged with black archival ink.
Thanks for stopping by xxxx.
