This week on the Stamp Simply blog, the Design Team are focusing on tags.
While I had the inks out from my last post, I decided to pull out two Stamp Simply stamp sets (including the new Autumn Silhouettes) along with a Tim Holtz stencil to create my mixed media tag trio.
As many of you who follow my blog know that I enjoy participating with online challenges and I am linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #563-#564 Anything Goes Challenge.
If you have not already had a chance to do so, I hope you visit the Stamp Simply blog to see all of the tag inspiration from the rest of the SS Design Team as well as the above challenge sites- gorgeous cards/tags from all!
To create this set of tags:
Die cut three tags from white cardstock using the medium tag die from the Sizzix Thinlits by Tim Holtz Tag Collection (I used a white cardstock with a bit of a coating that I have in my stash- sorry, not sure of the manufacturer, I used to work for a printing company and it was some of their overstock).
Using a stencil brush, apply Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink to the majority of the tags.
De-static the tags with an embossing powder tool, ink the wheat image from the Autumn Silhouettes using Versamark™ ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, use a stencil brush to Candied Apple and Crazed Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink and gently heat set the ink with a heat tool.
Using a stencil brush, apply Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink over the wheat images. Use a dry paper towel to wipe off the excess ink from the stamped images.
Use a purple water-based markers to add additional shadows around the wheat images,
Ink the Scripty Background Minis 2 image with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Stamp = sporadically over the tag (not stamping the entire image) and wipe off the excess ink over the stamped images.
Heat the script images slightly to set the ink.
Using a stencil brush, with the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil- Flourish, apply Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink around the tag (re-positioning the stencil to create texture).
Lightly spritz the tag with water to create a splatter effect on the background, allow the water to set for a few seconds, then dab with a dry paper towel before lightly heating each tag with a heat tool to dry the ink.
De-static the lower left portion of the tag with an embossing powder tool, ink the verse sentiments from the Autumn Silhouettes using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Finish off the tag with a looped piece of black seam binding.Stamp Sets: Autumn Silhouettes, Scripty Background Minis 2 (Stamp Simply)
