I made a tag as a reminder that Try It On Tuesday's 'Postcards/Mailart' theme still has one week to run!
It all started with some Distress Oxide play - I stamped a Crafty Individuals postcard on to one of the pieces I made.
I used my Ko-I-Nor watercolour set to colour it in
Next the tag - I mixed Oxides and Distress inks and some stencilling, just a bit too heavy handed but I did like the colour I ended up with. I added some stamping with a stamp that had become separated from it's set (I shall have to find where from)
I had a roll of washi tape out on my desk too so used a bit of that, dug around in my bits box to find some gauze which I coloured with Blueprint Sketch ink.
A bit of scuffing edges on the postcard, an Idea-ology remnant rubbed onto an offcut bit of oxide card and I had a tag that I wasn't entirely happy with - put it to one side then realised it needed edging and splattering with gold paint so had to do a bit of masking!
I would like to enter my tag at

Thanks for looking, Chris
