Soldier freebie

Today I've got a tag to show you featuring this week's Freebie Friday image-  you can pick it up at no cost in the Bugaboo store.

I colored the image with Promarkers. The background was made using one of the "due date library cards" I got from Mimi. I covered it with with white gesso beafore I covered the front with green gelatos. The smudge in the middle was made using a splatter stamp from a stamp set I got from Donna. I was trying out using my gelatos with water for stamping for the first time. It didn't quite come out as planned, but I was lucky this time - smudge suits better than splatters here. I also randomly stamped some words on the background.

I machine stitched around the edges using really small stitches, added an eyelet, ribbon and twine.

Wishing you alll a great weekend!

You are making fabulous backgrounds with gesso and gelatos, Pia!! This is a technique that I have to try. And your first try on stamping with gelatos and water looks really amazing! You have had a brilliant result, full of interest!! This is an amazing tag! Love these shades of green, the denim ribbon with the string and the stitching! The soldier is fun and cute!
