Life with dreams can fly


Today I'm sharing another tag made for a challenge with Isa. The colours and images are based on the May moodboard for the tagalong group.

The challenge also had to include a resist technique. I started with some Distress Oxide for the background...

...and stencilled over pink flowers, before embossing them with clear embossing powder.

I then overlaid the stencil again, slightly down and left, before stencilling again with violet.

No photos of the next step where I covered the tag with tissue and ironed over it to remove the ink and embossing powder to reveal the pink again. The effect is to leave a drop shadow.

I added a little background stamping, a die cut window and cut a hummingbird using a magazine stamp. Of course there had to be a few ink spatters too.

The hummingbird provided the perfect opportunity to try out some new Sakura Gelly Roll pens. Sparkly!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day xx


  1. This is very beautiful, Claire, a gorgeous design. You even ironed it, so many techniques involved here, wow!

  2. Gorgeous tag, love the colours and the bird is delightful xxx

  3. As well as being a resist technique, you've achieved a "bump" technique where you add darker (or lighter) ink around your 1st motif to make it pop. Lovely finish with the delicate window and gorgeous hummingbird too.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. xx
