Linda's Countdown, Tag 3


I was planning something a bit different for today's tag but it didn't work :-/  So back to inking and stamping.  Again I've used colourwashes on this.  Sometimes the colourwashes can be a bit dark which may be fine but if you add water in some way it makes them lighter and brighter.  I wet this tag all over before spraying with 3 colour washes and let the colours run.  I've used Raisin, Butterscotch and smidgen of Lettuce.   The aeroplane (stamped with Archival Maroon), case and postal stamp - on the bottom half 
(stamped with Pumice DI) are from a set of travel stamps by Artemio (couldn't find a name on the set), this pic isn't very clear 'cos I just scanned the acetate sheet.  Bon voyage stamped with Studio G alpha stamps, the wings are German Scrap; coloured with alcohol inks; I used Anita's clear gloss on the case and little tag and the little border on the bottom is metal cut with a MS punch and coloured with alcohol inks :-)

Your tags are looking wonderful - I especially love that first one with the higgledy piggledy houses and the rainbow colours
