Neil Walker Butterfly Tag by Gemma

It's the end of February already the mornings are starting to get nice and bright here, which always makes me feel better and we have a new challenge starting on the blog soon I am looking forward to seeing all the entries. 

I have a tag to share with you all today created using Distress Inks, a mask, and stamps from The Artistic Stamper.  


1- Apply a thick layer of gel medium through a stencil on one corner of the tag, this will take a while to dry.
2- Apply a thinner scrapping of gel medium through the same mask in a small area on the opposite corner of the tag.

3- Spread three colours of Distress ink onto a glass mat, spritz with water and push the tag into the ink, dry between layers, 
4- Use a brush to help apply ink over the thick gel medium and continue layering until happy with the result.
5- Using a wet wipe or damp cloth remove the ink from the gel medium.

6- Using one of the inks from the first layer apply more ink through the same mask in two or three areas.
7- Stamp over the top of the tag with one or two different background stamps for added interest.

8- Stamp a focal image in the bottom corner and the top of the tag using archival ink. I have used a butterfly stamp designed by Neil Walker, ensure the image is overhanging the tag. 
9- Wipe off any ink from the gel medium.
