Tag Tuesday + Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #31
Regency Fashion collection from Oxford Impressions. So romantic and pretty! Since the CCC challenge this week is Rusted Enamel (first way I used ep), I thought I'd try to find a way to work these stamps into the technique. I decided to try using Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar for my background colors, to give it a feminine look. Normally, I would probably try to go all rusty and grungy with a technique like this, but I thought I'd challenge myself! I'm still not totally sure if I love it, but it's starting to grow on me. ;-)
Tag Tuesday theme this week is 'A Tag on a Tag'. I decided that my tag was going to be my idea of what a Haute Couture sample maker would have on hand for ladies to order from. On the left side, I've stamped a small tag and attached swatches of ribbon and lace. The dress model is stamped on cardstock and colored using a water brush and the same Distress inks that I used on the background. She is mounted on a French text-covered piece that was cut using Tim Holtz's Styled Labels die. The picture above this one shows a closeup of the buttons they could choose from, mounted over a piece of Tissue Tape.
French enameled number tags. How cool is that?! Ack! I seriously freaked out when I saw it! Her blog is pretty awesome. Anyway, (of course) I didn't have what she had, so I had to come up with my own method (second way I used ep). Come back tomorrow and I'll show you a quick tutorial!
