Tag Tuesday - Background Tag

Yes, I know that it's Thursday, but we are experiencing a severe crisis with a family member and I wasn't able to be in my studio for the first part of the week. I felt a need to be doing something, so yesterday I finished up the rest of the ATCs for the ATCDiva swap and got them in the mail before the deadline-yay! Then I decided I needed to do some more art, so I took the Tag Tuesday challenge from Kard Krazy. Louise has a lot going on in her life right now so she had a guest hostess for us - Pam from Scrappy Pam Designs. Pam's challenge is to design a background tag, where the background speaks for itself, and use a minimum of stamping or embellishment.

I used Golden Fiber Paste first and dried it, then added distress inks, Red Velvet Glimmer Mist, charcoal pencil, Chinese White pencil, some light stamping with different stamps and inks, Spica pen and a small metal tag with twisted wire. This was a lot of fun to do, and was a different kind of focus for me. For more details, check on the tag on the Kard Krazy site and Pam's detailed list of how she did it on her site.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous tag, Rebecca!

  4. I love your tag, Rebecca. The colors are beautiful and it just seems very soft, almost dreamlike - so pretty.

  5. I love all the wonderful texture to this. We also are having family problems - ours being a serious medical problem, newly diagnosed. My blogging may get a bit spotty, but I hope to keep visiting your beautiful blog.

  6. Wonderful tag, love the texture.
