Wine tag with The Scarecrow by Tim Holtz

Hello everyone, My returning readers probably know that I love to make wine tags. Every year, I make Halloween and Christmas wine tags and sometimes for birthdays too. After a long time, I'm here with a Halloween wine tag.

For this tag, I had to do a lot of masking. But first of all, I cut out a wine tag shape from 300 gsm watercolour paper. Then I stamped the scarecrow with Black Soot Archival ink and I masked it. Then I stamped the moon and the maize. Then I masked them too before making the background. Here in this picture, you can see, that I've already masked the scarecrow and the moon.

Then I started to blend Faded Jeans to the top and Gathered Twigs to the bottom. 

Then I added some Chipped Sapphire here and there on the top part and Black Soot to the edges. Then I spritzed with water.

When it was dry, I coloured the scarecrow with Distress markers. In the end, I added a layer of Distress Resist. I tapped the Resist medium with a piece of sponge onto the surface. This enhanced the colours and it gave the surface a great protection.
