I should stop getting ideas

Well, I should, I should also stop watching TV as most of my stupid isdeas come from there!  This Tag is no exception.  I was watching the queen of the brayer, Barbara Gray in her usual Sunday slot this morning, and she did a technique with bubble wrap.  Well having a model builder in the house, there is always some luing around.  Now I'm not a complete fool, we just don't know which bit is missing, so I thought I would start small, and do a Tag.

I inked up the buble wrap with versamark and blobbed it around the tag randomly, I then used Adirondak dye based inks, stonewashed and red pepper to brayer over. This left the bubbles in white as per resist techniques, I then spritzed cosmic shimmer and glimmer mists randomly ito a plastic box lid and "dunked" the bubblewrap in that then used that to over stamp the brayered work.  I then used cosmic shimmer as a gentle mist over the top of the lot.

I then got out my Icons of London stamps from Clarity Stamp and stamped them in Adirondak Archival black around the tag.  I did a few buses and a few phone boxes, coz there are more than one of each in London!

Hope you like it.
