As you know I spent some time yesterday at LB Crafts watching the very talented Lin Brown doing a demo using a new product by Crafty Notions......a matte white spray paint, she showed us the swipe on technique using 3 distress ink colours straight onto the tag and then spray the tag with the white paint.....I think I should have applied more as I got splash marks, but they add to the overall effect. I then stamped the image with forest moss first and then again in black, the grass stamp is from Paper Artsy .....Hot Picks these are so fab, the other distress ink colours I used were scattered straw and dried marigold.
I then used gold shimmer wax for around the edge of the tag which I then mounted onto another piece of card which was distressed and stamped in the same inks as the tag. lining the tag up with the stamped image underneath....just did't add the white paint on this. The corrugated Kraft card was spritzed in irridescent gold glimmer mist.....gotta have a smidge of bling, the gold metal sentiment is from the same hot pick range...Secret Garden HP1005.
The challenge at Praire Fairy is a colour one...Orange/yellow with green and brown. Also the challenge at Pile it on is called 'Eat your veggies' and is open to interpretation....peas, cabbage and carrots spring to mind as well as spinach, brocoli etc...as they are all shades of greens and orange. Summer Delights is the challenge at Cupcake this week.
have a great Bank Holiday
