When the new Tim stencils came in last week, I grabbed some of my jumbo manila tags and used the full stencils and some of Tim's texture paste and cover the full tag. Once it was dry, I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Salt Water Taffey, a pale pink for Valentine's Day. But it was too pale so I went in another direction and sprayed it good with Treasure Island Aqua and then deepened it a bit with a light mist of Van Dyke Sepia, followed by a light mist of water to dilute it a bit - in other words, I just messed around until I got a look that I liked. Then I gave it a light wash with the Lindy's Magical Shabby Turbine Teal, mixing just a tiny dot of it with a squirt of water on my kraft sheet and then painting it on.
I used Wendy's new stamp set A Passion for Art, inking up the lace stamp with Jet Black Archival and stamped the lace along the top. My flower was cut from white card stock using several of the Tattered Florals dies. The die cut flowers were sprayed with Treasure Island Aqua and a light mist of Van Dyke Sepia.
For my heart, I layered white CS over gray chipboard and hand cut the heart. Mixing Wendy Vecchi's Translucent Embossing Paste with a tiny dot of the Magical Shabby Turbine Teal, blending and blending with a pallet knife until the color was even. Then I simply spread the embossing paste on with a pallet knife, roughing it up with little dips and gouges. I ran out of time and tried to dry it with my heat gun so it never went translucent - not sure if it would have with the mica powder mixed in. Once it had dried a bit, I gave it a shot of Van Dyke Sepia and then a mist of water to blend it. Then sentiment is from A Passion for Art, stamped onto a ticket die cut.
And that wraps up another Frilly and Funkie challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will share your vintage Valen-twine project with us this week. There is still another week of the challenge.
