- a kraft colored tag was covered with white gesso, a rather patchy application - allowed to dry. Stamped with a script stamp using light brown ink (think it was Desert Sand).
Using a technique demo'd by Jennifer McGuire a Tim Holtz Sizzix tree die was first embossed into the tag surface. I inked the tree die with a coating of Versamark, and then heat embossed this after embossing with a fine detail copper (think it was WOW, but not certain). It's a pretty look, but in my effort, the die cut a bit deeper than intended. No harm done though.
- tore a piece of music pattern paper, inked that with some DI (Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge? one of the yellow brown tones). Added that over the surface. Then used the same Sizzix Tree die to cut a blue shade of shimmer sheetz to add another die.
- snippet of white was stamped with the sentiment, edged with the same DI used on the music paper so that it didn't look so 'white'. Hunted up some ribbons and tied at the top. Sprinkled on a few gold & silver sequins, and called it done! If you have any questions about the tag, I'll be glad to try to answer...it's been some weeks, but I can hunt up the products/supplies.
Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Our area is getting a lot of poor quality air (smokey) from the fires in the North Carolina area, and now we're hearing that a mountain area in our own state has got some fires raging. Hard to breathe for those of us having respiratory problems. It's a shame if arsonists deliberately set these fires!
Anyway, big hugs. I'll try to add some posts each day, if I can keep up!!! Anybody watched The Crown on Netflix? I've watched in its entirety 2 times, and midway through the 3rd viewing. Pick up something I missed each time. It's an excellent production with great casting.
