I was so glad Linda brought back this challenge but even more glad that it will be following Tim's new book, Version 2! I love this book as much as the first and it's great to have it at my fingertips whenever I want it.
The first technique involves creating custom foam stamps (see page 66 of the book). I used the Pine Tree die as well as the Snowflake on the edge die for this awesome idea. Another new idea for your to try - cut the '25' out of the tag and back it with colored paper or another tag. Sure looks like it's on top of the tag, doesn't it?
Sizzix dies: Pine Tree, Snowflake on the edge, mini 25 and mini reindeer
Ranger: Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Stormy Sky, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Tea Dye and Weathered Wood distress inks; Snow Cap paint dabber; Picket Fence distress stickles; Jet Black archival ink
Techniques: Custom Foam Stamps, Wrinkle Free Distress
Misc.: brown fun foam (deer), thread, white card stock, #8 manilla tag, snowflake punch
I love the depth created by the layers on this tag! The base (1st layer) is Wrinkle Free Distress, second layer - stamped image, third layer - custom stamp images, fourth layer - torn cardstock, fifth layer - deer.
Now what technique will Linda choose next????? Inquiring minds want to know NOW! lol
PS - How could I forget to mention that Simon Says Stamp is offering a shopping spree to a randomly picked lucky winner?!?!?!?
