Stampendous! Saturday

First up today I need to announce the winner of my Blog Candy from last week!  Stampendous! generously gave all the DT stamps to give away this month.  I had pick my winner from last week's post...#10 Caroline!!  shoot me an email with your snail mail!

This week we are still doing our color challenge,  I didn't come up with anything new for that, sorry....BUT my tag sort of fits!  If you want to play along the colors are Cream, Gold, Brown, and Pink.

This is a tag I created last week while demoing at The Enchanted Cottage and I am going to do a slightly edited version in classes next month.  I started by spraying my tag with Turquoise Perfect Pearls Mist and Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and then heated that.  Next I stamped the Jumbo Songbird in Versamark ink and embossed it with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel

I used Glimmer chalks from Craf-T Products to rub inside the bird and leaves.  Next I stamped the Music Score background in Vintage Sepia Distress Ink from Tim Holtz and then edged the tag with  a combo of more Aged Gold and Shabby Blue embossing Enamels and added a touch of Gilded Mica and Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter using Fran's Encrusted Jewel Technique.

Finally, my favorite part of the tag is the quartet of ribbons and fibers that I tied through the top.

Here's a link to Fran's How to video for the Encrusted Jewel Technique.

That's it this morning! Thanks for coming by today! I am hoping to find lots of crafty time on  this sunny yet breezy Saturday.  What are your plans?
