I am sooo late with my DT project for The Fashionable Stamping Challenge, time just ran out last week ! So, I'm now on catch up and the challenge this time round is Magical and Mystical. Remember Marina from Cottage Crafts is our sponsor and there is a €7 voucher up for grabs to spend in her store for the winner.
I've been really enjoying myself with the extra large tags that I bought from Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique, so apologies you may see quite a few ! For this tag I decided to have a go at the Faded Layers technique (Compendium of Curiosities II, p43).
I thought I'd show you the background before I cover it up ! I cut the stencil from a Mask Sheet using the TH Elegant Flourishes die. I used the new Spring Distress Inks with some Seedless Preserve DI (love these colours!). I used the TH Fabulous Flourishes stamp set and also the text stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Art from the Heart set.I then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist Biscotti.
I stamped the main image using TH Distress markers coloured straight onto the Tanda Stamps stamp, onto watercolour paper, and then painted the image using the marker ink (love these markers too!). I dabbed some embossing ink around the corners and then sprinkled silver EP onto it. The embossed panel is made from a Ranger Foil Tape sheet, which I've stuck onto card and then embossed using the Retro Texture Fades folder. I then used several Alcohol inks on it and then covered it with black acrylic paint. I rubbed most of the acrylic paint off and sanded across the top. The star is made from a Stampin' Up flower punch which I've cut the rounded edges off, then used the cracked distress technique. The die cut word is a Sizzix die that I've cut one from black card and offset the top die cut so it gives the impression of a shadow. The ticket is made using the Movers & Shapers ticket die and the text is an Elusive Images stamp.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge, and do make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the fabulous work of the rest of the DT (if you haven't already!).
