Textured Spring Tag

Created using a chipboard base and lots of textural elements which were adhered with a glue gun.  It was then painted firstly with gesso, then with absorbent ground, before being sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in yellow Daisy, Denim Blue & Viva pink.  The raised areas were also highlighted with Viva Gold Wax (Platinum Colour)
The pictures show each stage of the process:
Stage 1 - Glue everything down.

I love the little bunny, mouse & the snail charms!

Stage 2: Paint with Gesso & Absorbent Ground

Stage 3: Spray with Tattered Angels & add Viva Gold
