Over on the SO SALSA challenge this week, the theme is Paisley.
I happen to lurve a Paisley pattern and I haven't used it for ages so it was nice to be able to get the Tim Holtz Paisley stamp out and get inky with it!
I started by clear inking and embossing the paisley stamp onto a tag. Next, using Cut & Dry foam, I blended Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord Distress Ink over the surface of the tag.
I then flicked water onto it, dried it with a heatgun and then used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to brighten up the colour a little.
I used a paper distresser and roughed up the edges of the tag, added a little ribbon slider by Maya Road along with some bright co-ordinating ribbon from my stash. Finally, I threaded a few pieces of ribbon thru the hole in the tag and then edged it all with black StaZon ink.
Thanks for a great challenge and thanks for looking!
