Grungy Monday is a Distress Ink color blocking demo by Tim Holtz that can be found on the Ranger Ink site (have you seen all the fantastic videos they have? There are tons!). I just got some new goodies from Inspiration Emporium and couldn't wait to incorporate them into my tag.
Mini Bird and Cage die since I first saw it! I gussied it up with my Faux Tarnished Silver technique and attached it to a die cut panel (I also used the same technique on the reinforcement circle). The bird was given a crackled effect with Picket Fence crackle paint. Finally, I added a sweet little flower to the corner of the panel. BTW, I will be posting a tutorial VERY soon on how to make this flower - stay tuned for more info!!
Stuff to Say. I thought it would be the perfect stamp to use on a Faux Enamel tag (click the link for my tutorial). This time I cut the tag from Tim's Tag and Bookplates die - the oval piece is from the center of one of the bookplates - and used thick white mat board. It came out really sturdy and looks exactly like a porcelain tag to me! I attached it with ribbon that I dyed using Bundled Sage Distress ink.
Nature's Moments stamp set repeatedly, using Bundled Sage Distress ink.
Speaking of packaging (which I made into a stamp!), don't forget about this month's challenge over at the Inspiration Emporium blog. You could win a $50 and, so far, only ONE person has entered!!
