okay so i have been out of making tags as of late but this weekend when all 27 of these babies arrived in my mailbox (inspiration emporium (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.com/) rocks) i had no chose but to dig out my tags and start playing…. oh and speaking of Inspiration Emporium, this months challenge on their blog (http://blog NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.com/?p=1554) is using masks and stencils.. give it a try and be sure to link up for your chance to win!!
spectacular aren’t they!!! so once the paint was driied i took my new most favorite paste EVER…embossing paste (http://studio490art NULL.blogspot NULL.ca/2012/11/introducingstudio-490-embossing-paste NULL.html) from Wendy Vecchi and applied it over the distress paints using a crafters workshop stencil
pretty cool stuff!! love the texture on this!!! speaking of texture over at The Artistic Stamper (http://www NULL.theartisticstampercreativeteam NULL.blogspot NULL.co NULL.uk/2013/04/april-challenge-texture NULL.html) their theme this month is texture so i am adding this to their link.. hope you drop by and see all the other works of art there!!
then i laid another stencil on it and sprayed with dylusions
didn’t quite like what it looked like so then added water and wiped it off which was a bonus ‘mistake’ because it allowed me to darken the embossing paste a bit to better suit my style (in case you didn’t know i am not a ‘clean’ girlie!!
so then it was time to do a bit of masking.
these are the three techniques i tried…. distress paint direct to mask/doilies; distress paint applied to craft mat and finger used to apply to mask/doilies and the final one was using my blending tool and distress ink
then i must of gotten lost in the process because before i knew it the tag was finished.
so what i did and forgot to take pics of was stamp my butterflies onto Wendy’s Clearly for Art , cut them out and applied them to my tag with the tiny attacher. and then added a bit of bling, a stamped quote and a bit of highlighting a last but not least bit of heat to shape the butterflies and done!
sure hope you enjoyed stopping by today now i must go and do january – march’s tags!!
