Today I am sharing the details of a tag which was shown yesterday on the ARTISTIC STAMPERS BLOG, where our challenge this month is Texture and Embossing.
For this one I started by doing some background stamping with the Swirls, Splats and Dots stamp set, to form a kind of resist to the rest of the background. You can't see much of it any more, but here is just a little glimps:
Next I added some texture with the help of one of the new Crafters Workshop stencils. This one has already become a firm favourite. You can see a bit of it here
Insects and Butterflies Plate,was stamped on some smooth card, first of all in Forget me not Archival ink I covered it in Clear embossing powder and embossed it. I then cut it out, inked the stamp in Jet Black and very carefully laid the central part of the cut out dragonfly onto the stamp to colour the body part black but leave the wings more blue. Next I covered it in Glue n Seal and when dry coloured it further with Distress Markers. Finally I spritz it with some home made Gold glimmer spray, for some shimmer.
The final touches were to add some label letters to spell my sentiment.
Well, hope you like my tag and of course it would be wonderful if you decided to play along with our challenge. You could win a great price of an Artistic Stamper stamp set of your choice!
Hope you'll have an inky day!!
