Thank you Crafty Gals for allowing me to join you. Since this month's challenge is Anything Goes, I thought I would just some techniques I learned from Creative JumpStart Summit 2013. It is a FREE online series of tutorials. Many of the tutorials are given by instructors by companies we love (Sakura, Prima, Liquitex, etc.). You can join in the fun, go to the founder's website, Nathalie, here and click on the tab "CJS2013" at the top. I've learned so much in the first week. The tutorials are archived so it won't take long to catch up and did I mention there are chances to win products?
After my long commercial, here's how I created my tags. The tag on the right was stenciled with Fired Brick Distress Ink, then stenciled again with spray ink (ivy vines), finally I attached a flower made with Tim Holtz's Tattered Flower die.
The tag on the left was made after I sprayed the ivy stencil onto the tag I took a blank tag and pressed it on the stencil to pick up the ink on the stencil (negative). I used a brass stencil (flower) and stenciled with acrylic paint. Finally I stamped a frame and glues a chipboard number inside and stamped the letter u. Thanks for looking.
