Mystic Turtle by Samantha Read

Hello, Samantha here today and I'm sharing a wooden art tag. I really enjoy working on wood because you it's so strong and tolerates all mediums. I also love turtles and the moon, I find them so mesmerizing, it's the moon light reflecting off the surface of the sea that the guides turtles to the sea when they hatch at night time.

To decorate my tag I created the background using watercolour paints, some sequin stars, texture paste through a star stencil and lots of glitter for a sparkly sky. I made the moon embellishment by moulding wet kitchen towel on a big moon rubber stamp from my stash and then painting with an acrylic iridescent paint. 
I then stamped the fabulous turtle from the Textured Sea Creatures set and a flower from Loose Florals 1 on to white card and coloured using Prismacolour pencils. To finish I added some ribbon.

Here are the stamp sets I used;

 I do hope you like my tag, for more inspiration why not join the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge on Facebook, we have a monthly mood board challenge where you can enter to win a credit at the Rubber Dance online shop.

Thanks so much for looking, wishing you a lovely day, Sam :)
