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 Random.org 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?
