My latest obsession...


Grunge-bird-tag

So what's my latest obsession? Daler Rowney Liquid Acrylics. Yum.


They come in dropper bottles and the pearlescent ones have an awesome sheen to them. I started with some gesso on the Ranger grungeboard base. Then I added a few drops of liquid acrylics, ran a texture comb through [the white lines], let the colours blend on their own and left it to dry overnight. [I like to be surprised in the mornings...*winks*


After that,  just add a few embellishments and the tag is all done! :)
Playing along with the gift tag challenge at Moxie Fab World.


P/s: Just a few more days to get your entries in for the May sketch challenge at Purple Pumpkin and the mood board challenge at Zeus and Zoe
