Wavy bottom arch

When someone proposed a tag not in a traditional tag shape I knew just where to turn, my good and trusty stash of Tando Chippie. Frankly these day's I be in a right fix without it. This then is my non traditional shape tag.

Coloured the basic shape with distress inks, another essential, and stamped it. Stamped image coloured with Promarkers, butterfly both on vellum and on the chippie coloured with Dorso colours (its a kind of wax pastel but softer than the usual kind) the colour is spread and smoothed with Lavender oil. Another first for me on this Chippie the surface of which if not roughened or damaged in any way the colour is smoothly spread and settles on the surface like any other pigment, nice smell as well.

The arches come in pairs
