Today I have made a distressed tag! Still playing with my Tim Holtz distress ink pads LOL - can't wait for payday when I can treat myself to some more colours!
I am entering this into Simon Says Challenge which is distressed and the Creative Card Crew theme for their current challenge is "vintage/aged" and also Tuesday Taggers which is to make a tag. Georgina is offering a FAB Paperartsy prize this week!!!
Distressed the whole tag in Frayed Burlap. Stamped the bike and suitcase (Clear Choice Stamps) in sepia and the key in Stazon. I then stamped a swirl randomly in versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. Using the blending tool I worked Faded Jeans over the whole tag and finally stamped the text in stazon. The clock stamp in the corner is a digi from Stitchy Bear Stamps and is from a set called Timeless Beauties. I coloured her scarf and hat in with pencils. I am entering the challenge over on One Stitch at a Time which is "anything goes", as I was on the last minute for last weeks challenge they will probably fall off their chairs in shock that I am soooo early for this weeks LOL!! (Mind your head on the way down girls LOL)
Ribbon and fibre from my stash. I had a little mishap with the bike charm as the saddle with the little hole in snapped off (oops!!).
Think I need a bit more practice with the distress inks and of course I won't be so limited when I have some more to play with but it took me out of my comfort zone and challenged me LOL - the challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is a "challenging challenge" and this was just that!
