Tag {with Lin Brown Stamps and Stencils}

As I have been making samples with the Fibralo pens, I have been using paper towels to mop up and to wipe off my brushes, this has resulted in very pretty towels, once dried. 

I took one and glued it to a large tag, using matte glaze. This turned out brilliantly, and resulted in a cross between fabric and card. 

I started to add some grunge paste through a Lin Brown stencil. ELB PS002

I also added grunge paste around the edge. 

I then used washes of Fibralo ink and a brayer to colour some smoothy card. 

I coloured the grunge paste and the border with fibralo pens and water. I then used Lins stencils to create flowers on the smoothy card. I cut these out and stamped over them with some of Lin's stamps, before layering them up and securing with a brad. 

Finally adding the title from ELB06 and rubbing treasure gold onto the grunge paste border. 

Finished tag.. 

The pens are available from PaperArtsy  HERE..
