IndigoBlu *Brown & Teal* Challenge Elizabeth Bennet Tag display.

Well due to the horrid weather conditions recently I've finally had chance to create an entry for the IndigoBlu June Challenge. Please meet Elizabeth Bennet (EB)


The image has been stamped onto water colour card using Ranger *Black Tie* Dye ink. The stamped image has been painted using a variety of IndigoBlu acrylic paints, Peppermint Tea, Pink Iced gem, Townhouse Teal, Banana Custard and Pheasant Bronze.
Tea Dye Distress ink was applied to the outer edge of the EB image then spritzed with water. Blotting the excess water off then drying with a heat tool this gives a distressed or *DISTURBED* look as I often refer to it.. I then repeated the process using Walnut stain.
The background of the Tag which you can just see peeking under the acrylics has been created using Town house Teal and stamped with Hot Cocoa IndigoBlu Acrylics using stamps from IndigoBlu's Tasty Textures A5 set.



The MDF Tag supplied from Stamps Away is 7.5" x 5" in size and is the base for the project. With both background and Elizabeth Bennet image being applied with glue. Hobby House Flowers surround EB with the added bead, button or embellishment from my crafty stash. 

The edge of the Tag has been randomly stippled using my finger with a mixture of Hot Cocoa & Pheasant Bronze Acrylics. Embossing powder sprinkled on top and heated raises this giving a perfect texture to apply a light coating of inka-gold Old Silver (again with my finger..!) to add a little shimmer to the finished project. 
A beautiful image to work with and she fits in with my home decor perfectly. Thank you for taking time to take a peek.. 
May your day be full of sunshine... Creative hugs from Tracey xx
