Anything But A Card - Rain

SO how is everyone doing?
First off a great big thank you for stopping by it's great to have you here.
 Ok we are half way through our latest challenge at Anything But A Card and our theme Is April Showers, we would love to see all your rain/water inspired makes, head on over to ABAC and see what the DT have created to get you in the mood.
 I have made another tag, I love making these and there are more to come tomorrow. For this one I gesso'd the tag and used some blue acrylic paint, I also sprayed with the white dylusion spray and the blue to get the mottled BG effect.
The Stamp is from De StempelWinkel I stamped him on to the tag directly but he looked lost so I stamped him onto a plain bit of craft card and fussy cut him, he has been coloured with distress markers.
The rainy swirl has been made using one of Andy Skinners new masks, I have used it with some Dream Weaver paste which has been given a coat of Treasure Golds Topaz rub n buff stuff.
To finish the I have gone around the edges with some black soot distress stain and the ribbon has been coloured with some distress stain and swiped with black soot to grunge it up a little.
The sentiment was first stamped in black and then over stamped with embossing ink and coated with white powder to give a shadow effect.

Again thank you for stopping by and as always we would love to see you over at Anything But A Card.


  1. A very atmospheric tag Mark, I love that AS mask and it looks so effective as rain. Great sentiment too. Anne x

  2. Great texture and I love the stamp.

  3. Another superb tag. Love the mottled effect with the white spray and the textured swirl. Plus that's a really clever shadow stamp trick. Must remember to try that out. :) Px

  4. Fabulous, love the shadow text and the paste through the stencil..


  5. Wow, Mark - this is just brilliant! The movement and drama from the stencilled texture is just fantastic, brilliantly combined with the (other) umbrella man... love it!
