We're having a GREAT time over at Swirlydoos creating tags this month! I'm actually on TWO teams, so I have two tags to show you today!
This first tag was created with the Swirlydoos Bohemian kit which featured the lovely "Kaleidoscope" line of paper by KaiserCraft.
I learned a new background technique with paints that I used on this tag. You simply take a piece of smooth white card stock or Bristol board and swipe paint dabbers across it in different colors. (I will list all the products I used, at the end.) Once that dried, I stamped an image with black Versafine ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. This became the focal piece of my tag and I built everything up around it in layers of mats.
On a piece of light aqua cardstock, I created another piece of matting by embossing a background image with white embossing powder.
