It's almost the end of the month already, and here I am, sliding in under the deadline for Tim's September tag. I had to make a few substitutions from his supplies list, but I had so much fun improvising (again!).
Tim's got a great tutorial on how to make this textural tag, so be sure to pay him a visit! Isn't this gorgeous?
Changes from Tim's tutorial: Perspective stamp, Ranger Transparent Matte Texture Paste and Ranger Clear embossing powder, Mermaid, Sail Boat Blue, Snowcap and Silver Mixative alcohol inks, and Crinkle ribbon dyed with Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean and Hickory Smoke Distress markers. I also used alcohol inks on the Frosted butterfly body and on part of the wing that overhangs and added Salty Ocean Distress paint to my word band. Update: oops! Looks like I forgot the marker spritzer! I think I'll leave it just as it is!
Here are a few close up shots to zoom in on that funky texture and color--love this technique, and will move gloss Transparent texture paste to the top of my wish list. Frosted is a blast to work with, and a must have for any crafter.
And a few last peeks...this little guy was hard to photograph!
I wish to enter this into the following challenges:
Eclectic Ellapu Purple Team Use Your Stash Which is 6 Months or Older--Alcohol ink paper, alcohol inks, brads and Crinkle ribbon all over 6 months old.
