Easter is on its way! Just received my new distress crayons so this rainy Sunday was a perfect day to play with them and create my version of Tim's March tag.
surfaces: manila tag, corrugated cardboard, patterned paper, vellum, adhesive metal sheet, distress watercolor cardstock
inks: distress ink (Seedless Preserves, Frayed Burlap, Ground Espresso); distress spray stains (Picket Fence, Ground Espresso, Brushed Pewter); archival ink: Deep Purple
crayons: set 2 (not the brights or browns/black/white)
mediums: white gesso
embellishments: fabric strip, silk ribbon scraps
adhesives: Multi Medium (matte), Collage Glue Stick, pop dots
dies: Easter Elements Bigz, Mixed Media Thinlets, Tag & Bookplate BigzL, Ticket movers & shapers
stamps: Crazy Talk
misc.: foil sheet (purple), egg punch, slot punch
The eggs were punch from watercolor cardstock that had smears of the distress crayons watered down with the water brush. An adhesive backed metal sheet was applied to a thin piece of cardboard; die cut with the ticket. I stamped the phrase in archival ink then used a tiny ball roller/roller ball to depress the lettering (aka 'faux word band'). I created holes for my fabric strip using a slotted hole punch.
I wonder what techniques Tim will use next month in his remix of tags?
