I created rectangular segments within the tag utilizing ribbon. For the application of colour to the whole tag I wanted to used a resist technique where areas are coloured with wax or oil based pencils (in my case the oil based Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils) & then burnished with a Derwent Burnisher in order to seal them with a layer of colourless wax. These areas will then resist any water based medium applied - I used Tumbled Glass Distress Stain for watercolouring the background.
