Watercolour and Stamping

Hello,  so to start the new year and share my  new series of crafty goodness  I have for you a cute and easy tag/ embellishment I made as a shout out to my friends over at Sin City Stamps.

Here is my Raggedy Ann tag:

Of course I just love anything with the iconic rag doll as we share the same name and I loved dolls as a little girl.  To be honest I still do.  To make this I used the supplies listed below.


Manilla Tag by Paper Accents™
Old book page paper from my stash
Stencil by Stampendous
Mask by ditto Hampton Art
Painters tape from Stanley Works
Stamp of Raggedy Ann from My Heart Stamps For you
Pieces of twine from my stash
Aleene's Tacky Glue by Duncan enterprise
Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger in:  Peacock feathers, Mustard seed, and Spun sugar.
StazOn® Black solvent ink by Tsukineko
Crayola marker in red by Crayola®
Mod Podge by Plaid®
Caran D'Ache Neocolor II® watercolor crayons.
A small brush for water color by Talens
5 vintage buttons from my stash


1.  Using the Distress inks and some sponges or daubers apply the ink using the stencil.  Overlay the mask and continue inking.  Adding colour randomly.
Remove mask and stencil.  Let dry.

2.  On a piece of an old book page stamp the image using StazOn.  Let dry completely.  I used this permanent solvent ink so that the water colors would not run when applied.

3.  Rub chosen colors of watercolour crayons on a plastic palette.  With a damp paint brush pick up colors off palette and color in image one color at a time.  Making sure to clean the brush in between colors.  Let dry.

4.  Tear around the coloured stamped image, ink the edges.  Once dry glue to tag with some glue and coat with a sealer such as Mod Podge.

5.  Using a black pen add stitching lines around word Hooray (that was mask).  Glue on some buttons and attach twines.
