New Year Tag with new products

My new stamps arrived today from That Craft Place, Lisa’s Ditzie Designs
So I was eager to use them with some new products that were on my Christmas list
I started by stamping the Art from the Heart onto a small label, with the Paperartsy minis 99 feather
Which I then coloured in with ShinHan brush markers, these are new to me and they have a really cool large brush applicator and the colours are very vibrant

Then I distressed the edges with Derwent Inktense blocks and pencils with water around the edges
I then took some 3 stripes of ribbon and coloured them the Inktense blocks in a graduated colour sequence using the blocks with water, the colour becomes permanent when heat set
Its the first time I have used these and they are  brilliant, so versatile and the intensity of the colours is amazing
I then layered the ribbon over a gelli plate print background on a larger tag and applied with DecoArt glue and seal
Applied all the layers together and finished with some really pretty yarn and some string coloured with the inks


  1. Gorgeous!! Such beautiful soft yet vibrant colour tones and I love the addition of the fibers!

  2. Such vivid intense colours - it's beautiful. I've been eyeing the Inktense bars for a while - looking forward to seeing what else you get up to with them!
