The base of corrugated cardbord was painted with a light colour before parts of the background image were stamped several times and sealed with matte medium. Three more layers of acrylic paint were added (black, grey, teal - let dry thoroughly inbetween). When all this had dried some rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth was used to gently rub away the layers of paint in some areas. At last the circles were stamped with a bottle lid and gesso.
The city view image was stamped separately onto design paper and torn out.The eyes were stamped on white cardstock, cut out and coloured with distress stains - same procedure with the seagulls. Mind you, they're tiny and a real challenge to fuzzy cut ;-)

Thanks a bunch for stopping by today and please don't miss out the challenge over on our de stempelwinkel stampers challenge blog  .... thanks.


Have a great day everyone ...
Hugs, Suzanne xx

Beautiful tag, and cutting out the seagulls may have been hard, but they do look great! They really belong there....
