Long overdue but finally had a bit of time to play so here is my tag for week 35 to include:
- embossing powder
- a leaf as a stencil
Inks: Memento Tuxedo black, Distress inks Barn door, Forest moss and Wild honey
Card: white card, tissue paper
Stamps: Lavinia stamps Fall,
Other: dried pressed leaves, acrylic paint daubers copper and gold, Distress stickles Peeled paint, embossing powder Ochre, Verdigris and Hollyberry red gold, metal leaf charm coloured with Sharpies, mixed fibres, bronze eyelet
I started by using my pressed leaves as stencils and stippled the distress inks over them, then gave the tag a light spray with water to blend the colours a little. Once dry I sprinkled the embossing powders over the tag and heated from beneath to melt them. I dabbed the paints sporadically. The falling fairy and seed were both stamped onto the tissue paper, cut out and glued onto the tag using diluted PVA. I dabbed some of my maidenhair leaves with the paint too, then once they were dry I embellished the base of the tag with them. The edges were finished off using the distress stickles To finish it off I added the coloured charm and fibres.
