An Umbrella In The Rainforest Isn't Much Use !





This tag was done as my entry into the Stampotique Designers Challenge which this time is entitled 'Oodles of Doodles'.  The base is a plain manilla tag which I have sprayed with Summer Inks by Sticky Fingers in yellow & green, building up layers until happy with the colour.

The leaves on the background were applied through a stencil with vintage sepia Distress Ink applied with Cut'n'dry foam. The Stamptique stamp is one by Jill Penney & Daniel Torrente called Relaxin' and it was this that inspired me to write the caption 'Why am I sat in a Rain Forest??' I just love the image.








I decided to stamp the image in Memento tuxedo black directly onto the coloured tag and then use some Marvey alcohol ink brush pens to selectively colour some of the image. Think the effect is a bit reminiscent of the 'Predator' films where the creature appears to be part of the foliage. I then set to work with Posca pens in black, white, blue and yellow and doodled to my hearts content so all other edging and the words along with some raindrops were added freehand.








Finishing touches added some lime green satin ribbon, some moss green cord and a small length of iridescent cord threaded with a few green foiled leaves through the tag top.








So don't expect a brolly to work well in the rainforest !! (not that I've ever been there, of course).
