You Were Born To Stand Out

Time for my weekly DT post for Artistic Outpost and this week I am showcasing the fabulous THINK AND WONDER plate.
I have opted for a more masculine make this time around colouring the background with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then adding stencilled numbers in the backdrop using the Numbered Layering Stencil. I have then flicked the background with water to add blotches.
I have stamped the focal image onto a piece of white card using Black Archival Ink and then coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, again adding stencilled numbers to the backdrop for added interest. I have repeat stamped the image onto a circular piece and added to a bottle cap coloured with Ginger Alcohol Ink.
I have used that wonderful Lattice Frameworks die once again, die cut from black card and I have added the diamonds back into the lattice, stamped with parts of the image to echo that of the focal image. 'explore life' is a Remnant Rub which also adds a further layer of interest. I have also included a Stancil Mark added to the top of my tag, again coloured with Alcohol Ink.
I love the sentiment which I added to the bottom of my tag, along with more touches of the Lattice Frameworks pieces.
