Hi everyone, here is a tag that I made using the wrinkle-free distress
technique that is in Tim Holtz's Compendium book on page 33.The tag is made of £1 shop lining paper! It is a wonderful material for inking on and very cheap too!
First, I wrinkle-free distressed the paper and stamped and embossed in copper on top. the stamp is by stampsmith.
I cut out some swirls from cereal packet card (another useful card that takes ink really well and is already a nice background colour). The swirls are spellbinders dies. I embossed these with a mixture of black and copper embossing powder. If you mix your powders you get many more effects and colours.
I stamped and embossed the lion and crown with red and gold respectively.
Another money saving tip! I don't have a craft mat for the distress technique so I made my own using cardboard, masking tape and silicone coated baking paper. I am sure its not as good the the proper craft mat but it does work.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Studio L3 - CCC week 16 wrinkle-free distress
Simon says stamp and show - distress
Stamping Vacation - animal applause, an animal you wouldn't want running through your house!
Thanks for looking
