I took a jumbo tag and stuck on some little tiles with stencilled Grunge Paste on them, a technique I learned from the wonderful Lin Brown, whose PaperArtsy house and bird stamps also figure on the tag! I then took all the shades of yellow I own! For a base coat, I used Cheesecake Fresco and then blended Haystack, Banana, Yellow Submarine, Tangerine Twist and finally Zesty Zing! There's also an area of Tango there too, but it's more orange than yellow! That glow was reminding me of a childhood picture book our children had, which featured yellow quite dramatically.
Apart from Lin's texture idea on the background, the pennants on the house are highlighted with Glossy Accents and the 'chicken' body appears to be 'welded' on using Pearlen Pen blobs to resemble rivets! I also stamped Darcy's leaves around the edges, clear embossing the black Archival ink.
So Darcy, Lin Brown and Hot Picks all combined to create Baba Yags's world on this tag.
There have been so many interpretations of this 'witch' with her bizarre house and Pienkowski's is really beautiful as well as sinister, with the allusion to Baba Yaga's taste for human flesh in the skull and bones gate outside! Mine is, I suppose, a bit more crazy and quirky! I stamped the chicken body straight onto the tag and then added Lin's little house, cut out and fixed onto dimensional pads with a couple of the extra wings, again clearly embossed. Perhaps there is a different story to this little 'chicken-house', one not quite as menacing as that of Baba Yaga who lured travellers into her odd little house in the woods in order to eat them!
I do hope you will join in the Dragons' challenge this fortnight. Remember to use yellow and texture and at least one stamped image on a tag! Have a happy and a creative week!
