5,4,3,2,1 - Shine!

Welcome to my second design for our Numbers themed challenge at Country View Crafts challenges. 
I love this technique, using embossing powder to protect some of the surface. You can see how I used this on another tag and some more detailed photos - here.

I began my tag with random inking in various colours and once dry I added versamark through the rays stencil and embossed with clear powder. I covered the whole tag in black soot ink and then wiped it away from the embossed areas.

I cut my tattered floral flowers from grungepaper with card stuck to it. I like this combination as it is sturdy but flexible! I dabbed some gesso on to create some texture and once dry dabbed various paints on too until I was happy.
My numbers were pre cut grungeboard numbers which I painted with the same colours.

A few close ups...

Thanks for visiting today.
