Mixed Media *Madame* Tags with Tamiko
Today I created a few fun tags for you with the faces from the Madame by Madeline stamp plate by Sin City Stamps. The tag is full of texture and color. One was done with a gesso and modeling paste background and the second was modeling paste alone. Question? How many of you color your images in advance? ::raises hand:: If you don't, do you wonder why I do? I have three reasons. 1) I like to stamp my images out on various types of papers, not all images will require coloring. 2)I love to color. I often spend hours at a time playing with different mediums laying pigment. 3) As I color I have done two things: a) created a colored image fodder- so I can grab and go for any up and coming projects; and I have also managed to at least use my stamp once! How often do we buy things and not use them? You BETTER USE YOUR STAMPS!! ::chuckles:: Here a few tags I created.
To create today's tags I used the following:
Sin City Stamps- Madame by Madeline Faiella
Tim Holtz's Stencil- Doily Lace Pattern
Deco Art- Gesso and Modeling Paste
Derwent- Inktense pencils
Caran D'Ache- Neocolors II
I began by placing a thin layer of gesso on one of the tags.
Stenciled some modeling paste on both tags.
Then I added some neocolor II
Moved the color around with my water brush.
After my backgrounds were completed for the tags, I embellished them with my pre-colored stamped images, flowers, faux ribbons and blingy goodness. Here are few more photos.
