DRAGONS DREAM TAG IT ON #189 - BLUE AND WORDS

A bit of fun this week for the Dragons Dream Tag It On Challenge.  I've been sorting out my craft room lately and I dug out these gorgeous (and long neglected) Grumpies from the depths of one of my files. I'd forgotten just how great they are. It cost me a fortune to have them shipped at the time but it was SO worth it. They make me laugh so much and they go perfectly with the hilarious Dylusions Say It How It Is stamps. It just had to be done quite frankly...

I used three shades of acrylic paint for the tag itself and the Grumpies are coloured with my Copics. I'm not usually one for bright colours but I like how they go together here.

Clare showed us a technique on her blog a couple of months back where you scrape through the top layer of paint with the handle of your brush to create texture. I put a layer of aqua paint on the tag and when it was dry I applied blue and white paint over the top. I then scraped through the blue and white paint while it was wet to reveal the aqua underneath. I love how that works. Thanks Clare.



LOL... Too cute!
