A House on a Tag


The current Making Art Challenge on the Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group is to make a tag with a house on it.  I started with a #8 manila tag... actually an extra tag I had here that I'd used to pick up extra ink from another project. All stamps used are Wendy Vecchi Studio 490.  The background (Be Inspired...Make Art set) is stamped with Archival manganese blue.  The vine image (same set) at the top is stamped with Archival emerald green and also a couple times with russet.  The leafy image stamped along the bottom is actually the top part of the tree from the Mail Art set also stamped with emerald green.  Scallops around the edge are done with a white pen.  The house is Wendy's Art Parts... I'm using the medium sized house - just the part with the cut out, the roof line, and the door.  I colored all pieces first with snow cap Pigment ink and dried them.  The house is inked with Distress Ink barn door, rusty hinge, and fired brick and stamped with the background from the set Art Colors Life in russet.  The roof line and door are inked with picket fence Distress Stain, dried, stamped with the background from Celestial Art using russet, dried, inked with some tea dye and rusty hinge, dried, scallops and dashes made with a black pen.  Be inspired (Be Inspired...Make Art set) was inked with jet black separately and stamped on scraps of manila... Be is cut to fit behind the opening in the house... inspired torn out... inked around the edges of both with scattered straw and mustard seed with a little rusty hinge on the inspired piece.  A gold heart button with the shank cut off is colored with rust alcohol ink and attached to the door.  Hand is stamped on manila with jet black and inked with rusty hinge, fired brick and tea dye.  Die cut leaves (Sizzix branch w/leaves) from manila, inked with peeled paint stain and sprayed with Color Wash meadow, stamped with the background from Celestial Art using emerald green, cut apart and added as shown.
