February Tag...well not really.
For this month I have created a canvas trying the techniques used by Tim. I will be creating a Tag but my heart stencil and stamps set are still en route heading north from Simon Says Stamps. I did try to wait but I was too excited!
The Jumbo Tattered Floral is quickly becoming a favorite. I guess I'm longing for spring.
The Garden Greens big die is fabulous. I meant to dip it in crackle but I coated the cuts in glossy accents. They still turned out amazing. I used alcohol inks on the steams and what was a mistake turned into something beautiful!
I used some foil tape and cut the ornate frame then embossed. A little black soot distress paint and this frame quickly becomes aged. It subtle but on the canvas I used the harlequin stencil with iced spruced stain. Then I stamps through using a TH letters stamp and black archival.
More floral with the mini tattered floral. I cut the petals on grunge paper then used some more alcohol inks. It's really vibrant. A few metal gears and wire for trendils. It's official, I have all the tattered floral dies.
I painted the center cut of the ornate frame with black soot then stamped the silhouette image with embossing ink. The antiquities frosted crystal and chalk make her glow.
I layered tissue on grunge paper then stamped with the paris memoirs background stamp in archival black. I inked with milled lavender, rusty hinge, worn lipstick and picked raspberry stain. The leaves are stained with peeled paint and peacock feathers. What a burst of colour.
I added the butterfly at the top attached to more twisty wire. Bright and springy in peacock feathers distress glitter then inked with walnut stain.
I inked and layered some TH paper stash. You can see some of the stamped harlequin stencil on the canvas.
Watch for a Tag post where I will get to break in the heart stencil and random quotes stamps. Hopefully later this week?
