It's apple picking time!
This week the technique for the CCC is Wrinkle Free Distress (pg. 33 in Tim' book). The color palette I chose was Wild Honey, Barn Red and Peeled Paint. The apple stamp (Anita's) was stamped with black archival ink onto watercolor paper then colored with the above inks, blending & shading with darker versions in the same colors. It was cut out using a craft knife then elevated with foam tape.
I stamped the apples text (A Stamp in the Hand) across the dry tag using coffee archival ink. A 'page' from Tim's calendar tissue tape was adhered to red cardstock, torn out and edged with brown & black distress inks. The button and metal tag were sanded and aged with StazOn ink. Both were finished with a bit of twine.
This technique is one of my favorites...so easy...so versatile. I did edge the tag with brown distress ink to make all the colors pop. The oven is hot and I have my fork ready!
