Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 7

What a busy week I've had. Just under the wire I finished my tag for this weeks challenge over at Studio L3.

This week the challenge is 
Technique 7: Brushless Watercolor

For this challenge I used as the main image an older stamp from Stampede.
I just love the way the inks looked with this image. To make it "pop" even more I added images from 
a 7 Gypsies set called Venice

Here is a close up so you can see the water color technique close up. 
I am going to tie this tag to a bottle of vino for a gift! 


  1. Perfect for a bottle of wine! (And 24 hours to spare!)

  2. Oh Bear!! Your tag is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Oh how I wish I could find those stamps but I don't think I could do them the justice you have. Can you tell me what ink you used and the color?

    Someone is going to be very lucky to get that bottle of wine....Heck...I would rather have the tag than the bottle of wine and I love wine!

    Big smiles and thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Dusty Concord and Shabby Shutters. The black is archival.
