Chocolate Baroque Week- Fiona Randall

Morning everyone Fiona Here with a Tag for Chocolate Baroque week here on Tando Creative.
Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley and David Wharton. Lesley and David produce an extensive range of natural rubber art stamps. The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards.
So using Chocolate Baroque's fabulous stamps and Tando Creative substrates are a match made in heaven. So here is the tag that I created.
I used a Tando  size 9 Tag ( 160x90mm) as my substrate base. I then embossed a piece of 300gsm cardstock with a woodgrain Embossing Folder. I then applied Distress Ink Sprays  and Distress oxides to colour and age the cardstock. This was then cut to shape and glued to the tag base and the edges inked with walnut Stain Distress Ink. I used the same coloured ink sprays to make a small cardstock panel and then stamped using the border stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Texture Fragments Rubber Stamp Sheet with Potting Soil Archival Ink. I then applied Distress ink to Some Tando Harlequin Extra Thins and then stamped with the text stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Butterfly Poppy Collage Rubber Stamp Sheet in Potting Soil Archival Ink. I then Stamped the Large Butterfly also from The Butterfly Poppy Collage Stamp sheet and applied watered down distress ink using a brush to colour. The cardstock panel was then mounted onto a piece of Tando Grey Board cut to size and the edges Inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.. All elements were then mounted onto the tag, some burlap string was pulled apart and added also and to finish sentiment strips added.
Here's a close up view of the detail.
I hope you have enjoyed the process of how this all came together. I do hope you will stop by Chocolate Baroque and peruse all the wonderful stamps Lesley and David has to offer.
Do check back to see what the other Design Team Members have in store for you this week.
