Cameo Tag

Welcome to Technique Tuesday
Judy Cantrell 

The background portion of this tag was made while playing with my watercolor crayons.
 I'll share with you how I made this tag, instructions below:

Add your choice of watercolor crayons with a small stroke of black watercolor crayon between each color on your manila card stock. Use wet brush to blend colors and set aside to dry. 
I found it very interesting that with the use of too much black watercolor crayon between each color you get a muddy mess.
This is my second tag using this technique. Very easy to make.

Finishing tag:
I used a piece of manila folder to die cut ornate frame, it was painted with distress wild honey paint,  dry, add clear embossing ink, followed by clear UTEE, heat set, more embossing ink and more clear UTEE, heat set. Over the wild honey embossed frame, add distress black paint and then rubbed off leaving just a little to give a vintage look.
The TH silhouette image was stamped on manila card stock with clear embossing ink followed by several layers of gold powder, heat set and then cut-out. A white card stock cutout from Ornate frame was used as a back drop for silhouette embossed image. Distress ink was added to oval before adding it to tag.
My Create a Sticker by Xyron was used to apply stamped images and die cut to tag.
Archival black ink was used with quote stamp on distress inked frame and cut-out.
