Be Transformed


Hi Artistic Outpost friends, this week I decided to play around with clear embossing for my background - just experimenting to see what I could create.  I started with a jumbo manila tag and gave it a light coat of Frayed Burlap distress stain, then using a Prima stencil I sponged on embossing ink in a flourish pattern.  I also did some stamping with embossing ink and a sentiment stamp from Serenity.  Next clear embossing powered was applied, the excess tapped off and it was heated on with a heat tool.  Then I whitewashed the entire tag with watered down gesso and blotted off some of it from where it was embossed. 

The sentiment panel was stamped with a sentiment from Chalkboard Wisdom using Gathered Twigs and clear embossed.  I also sprinkled a little Enamelware embossing powder around the edges to add  interest.  Once the embossing powder was heated on, I sponged the panel with Gathered Twigs.  I cut the feather from white card stock and made a splat with Gathered Twigs distress stain. Vintage Photo distress stain was blotted at the bottom, sort of like a pen had leaked.  I've had the pearl flourishes in my stash for probably about four years - one of those hoarded things that we hate to part with!  I finished my tag off with a crinkle bow that had been dyed with Vintage Photo distress stain.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you are having a great weekend!

This tag is so pretty, Linda! I love to use clear embossing powder for backgrounds but I like the way you whitewashed after you embossed. Really soft and lovely!
