And now for some details on this tag. I was able to get an ample supply of the new Tim Holtz stencils into the shop so I pulled my first Tim Holtz stencil from the inventory and used it here. I decided I wanted to stamp inside an oval and then emboss around the oval. It took a little juggling but I was able to work it out.
The dry embossed Holly Branch was sponged with Pine Needles DI and I stamped the script from Wendy Vecchi's Live and Make Art set lightly and randomly with Walnut Stain DI. The edges were also sponged with Walnut Stain. Using the Holly Branch die, I cut the holly leaves from manila CS and sponged them with Pine Needles DI, then swiped them with Picket Fence distress stain. When dry, I embossed them with the Flourish texture fade, sponging the edges with Walnut Stain.
The Ornate Frame die was used to cut chipboard, which was then painted with Brushed Pewter distress stain and then Pewter distress glitter was added. I had the Pewter distress stain on my craft sheet, left over from painting the ornate frame. I spritzed some water on it and then blotted my tag into to it to give it a little bling. The sentiment was stamped in Jet Black archival. I dyed the seam binding with SU's Real Red reinker and then applied Brushed Pewter glitter to the mirrored star.
And that's a wrap for tag #10. Thanks so much for stopping by and if you are planing along, thank you so much for join in.
