Hello crafty friends, today I would like to show you my latest creation, a tag. When I started this tag I wasn't sure that it could be a finished tag because I wanted to do some experimenting. I wanted to try my new Ranger embossing glazes by Tim Holtz. And yes, in the end, I was really satisfied with the result so I wanted to share it with you immediately.
I cut out a tag from chipboard with the Tag&Bookplates Bigz die. I added a layer of gesso and let it dry. Then I mixed a few acrylic paints and covered the surface. When it was totally dry I took out my self-made stencil, a stencil which was created by me for the bokeh challenge of the Country View Challenges.
For making my stencil I chose a quite thick plastic and cut out circles in different sizes.
Beside the embossing glazes (Broken China, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood) I also used an embossing powder (Weathered White) because I felt I needed a white colour.
Through my stencil, I added embossing ink on the tag, then I sprinkled the circle area with the embossing glazes like seasoning a food, one pinch from the Broken China, one pinch from the Weathered Wood etc.
When I was ready with the embossing, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso and Black Soot Archival inks. Then I splattered with Walnut Stain paint.
In the end, I added inspirational texts from Tim's sticker book.
With my tag, I would like to join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Add some texture
I hope you like it!!! Thank you for stopping by!!!
