My entry this week is a tag I made whilst demo-ing at the NEC a few weeks ago. I have used lots of new goodies on it - starting with Ranger's fabby Texture Paste which was spread through Tim's Gothic Layering Stencil. Once I had dried it, I used Antique Linen and Black Soot Distress Spray Stain smooshing the inks about the tag with a spritz or two of water. A zap with a heat tool to dry the inks and then a smidge of blending Black Soot Distress Ink over the tag to make the stencilling really pop and voila, background completed. The decoration is one of the stamp from Tim's latest Christmas Blueprints sets - I love that poinsettia - perfect for stamping a few times and cutting out and layering up, decoupage fashion... and finished with a Gumdrop which I coloured with Tree Branch Archival Ink. I added a pearly strip to the bottom of the tag, die cut some of Tim's new Winter Greens and used Stick It on the card so I could sprinkle Rock Candy Distress Glitter over the surface - if you haven't tried Stick It yet... HERE's the info and where to buy - seriously FAB product folks, it is so thin that you can use it with thinlets dies and all your fancy thin dies too and it also acts like a waxy paper so the diecut pops out of the die without any huffing and puffing to release it...cool huh? I used Tim's new Handwritten Christmas 1 stamp set for the word, how cool is that handwritten font! A few bits and bobs to embellish and my tag was finished.
I shall away now - this is a pre-scheduled post as I am away teaching at Pickwell Farm in Southampton this weekend... and I am not going to even think about what day it should be when it is actually a different day completely lol Thanks for looking, have a great Sunday! TTFN
