It's the 5th Friday in October and whenever there is a 5th Friday in a month - we celebrate by having a Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey!
My skater got a little lost with the matching colors of the background - so I outlined him with a White Stabilo Pencil to give him some definition. I actually did cut him out of several different colors to try but this looked the best to my eye. (He is ONE with the forest!)
Here are a few process photos.
I scooped small amounts of spray inks out of the bottles onto my craft mat leaving some distance in between the colors. I used Dylusions White Linen Spray Ink and Distress Oxide Spray inks in Cracked Pistachio and Fired Brick.
I pressed a panel of Matte Black Yupo paper onto the colors and rubbed over the panel not moving it around, just wanting to spread the circles of color. This is how it looked when I lifted it up after the first press.
Then I pressed the black areas, one at a time, into what was left on the craft mat and ended up with this. You never really know how a panel will look at the end - each time it comes out differently!
Then I die cut the trees and my skater from Tim's Thin Ice Die - cutting the skates and hat again out of the pink. I cut a holly and berries using dies from Winter Wardrobe to decorate his hat and scarf.
Come and see all the beautiful tags the Creative Guides have to share with us over at A Vintage Journey - you'll find the post here!
