Mixed media tag - I lived in the darkness

Hi everyone,

I'm dropping in with a quick mixed media tag. This was made in about half an hour. So if you need a little something, this might be perfect for you.

I cut my tag to size - about 3 x 5 inch. For the background I layered some Oxide sprays. For each layer I sprayed one or two colors, added a little water and dried it before adding the next layer. After I was happy with the color I got, I finished the background with a few splatters of the red tone. Besides the tag I also prepared a piece of scrap paper from which I punched my reinforcement ring.

I stamped the reading man, one of the new Banksy stamps, onto some watercolor paper, cut him out and inked the edges in black. Directly on my tag I stamped the peace symbol. Initally, I planned to add some washi tape to the bottom of the tag to give the man something to stand on. But then the dumpster caught my eye and I thought why not turning this upside down! So the "step" you see in the bottom right corner is from that stamp.

To finish the tag, I glued the man to the tag using foam tape and added some found text fragments. I added the reinforcement ring and a string.

Stamps used:
Banksy Peace Symbol (20655)
Banksy Dumpster Fire (20650)
Banksy Man Reading (20657)

Other material:
- Canson watercolor paper
- Distress Oxide sprays (crackling campfire, walnut stain, iced spruce)
- Versafine Claire ink (nocturne)
- text fragments
- jute string

See you soon!
