Technique Junkie newsletter. By combining it with a crackle stamp from I Brake for Stamps, I ended up with the It Takes Two technique from the latest issue of the TJ newsletter!
Faux Crazed Porcelain technique! This time I punched a circle from some light chipboard and made a little tag for the neck of the bottle. Speaking of which...below is the tutorial I promised! You can also check it out on the Inspiration Emporium blog.
Faux Crazed Porcelain
Ranger Distress Crackle Paint - Picket Fence; Ranger Adirondack Paint Dabber - Pitch Black; Ranger Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel - Clear; Sizzix Mini Labels Die; Versamark Ink - Clear; Tim Holtz Rubber Stamps - Stuff to Say
5. Coat label with UTEE and heat emboss. Repeat at least two times, or until you are happy with the look of it.
easel card. You can also try different shapes and different materials - check out the clock face on this card! I would love to see what you create!
One note about my tutorials - I am always thrilled to share my ideas as I come up with them. I love using my blog as a way to share what I love and highlight the companies whose products I use. However, I have come across more than a few bloggers who have used my ideas without giving me any credit for the original idea. In at least one case there is someone who is teaching one of my techniques - even went so far as copying my tag! - and did not give me any credit or ask for my permission.
As an artist, this is incredibly hurtful. It takes a lot of time to come up with an idea, photograph the steps, and create a post. To have someone basically 'steal' and/or take credit for what I've worked so hard to create makes me think twice about being so generous. Fortunately, that lasts about 10 seconds and I'm back to thinking of new stuff to show you all! However, I DO ask that you link back to me if you're using one of my techniques. Thanks so much for your understanding! :-)

Looks wonderful, Shelly... thanks for the tute!ReplyDelete
I love the detail you give in your tutorial. Thank you for being such a good person and despite other people's nature lack of character in stealing your ideas and not giving credit, goodness wins in the end. God Bless you and it looks like he already has with your talent!ReplyDelete
I agree with gingerlee. Thankyou for sharing all your cool ideas with us even though there are some very selfish peolpe out there. Your tutorials rockReplyDelete
Great tag, Shelly! Your talents NEVER fail to amaze me:)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your inspiration and the tutorials. Also, shame on those thieves out there. Pity they feel they can't do things on their own.
Ooo, this is FABULOUS! Thanks so much for the tute, always appreciated! It's too bad there are those types out there...doesn't give one much incentive, as you stated, to share, but I'm glad it didn't change your mind!ReplyDelete
Hey Shelly!!! Your tag and tutorial are really cool. Thanks for sharing with everyone. Hey, congrats on your win over at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week as well!!! Again, your tag and tutorial are wonderful! THANKS SO MUCH! <3 CandyReplyDelete
My favorite part is how you lined up the points of the tag with the bold grid paper - LOL. Seriously, I bought some little round wooden circles at Michaels, and I'm going to try and see how that works with this technique (not that I don't have some Nesties and a bunch of chipboard).ReplyDelete
Beautiful tag! I love coming here for inspiration and instruction on new and unique techniques. I try to soak in some of your creativity... LOL (if only THAT would happen!!!)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, even though I know it must be hard when you have an experience like that - please don't let that deter you!!!
Really just too cool! Thanks goodness there are truly inspirational people in my world to inspire me! I'm off to find my picket fence. Thanks for the tute.ReplyDelete
There will always be unfair people in the world. Don't let them get you down.
WOW!!! Thanks so much for sharing shelly, this is so cool!! Love everything about it!!!ReplyDelete
Great, great tag! And about your tutorials: I think it's wonderful that you put so much time and effort into sharing your techniques with everyone--and so very generous! I think anyone who uses them and posts the work on their own blog owes it to you, (and anyone else who creates demos) to give credit where credit is due! It's just good manners and also, common sense! I know the majority of us out here in Blogland appreciate your beautiful art and your kindness in sharing what you know! So . . . thank you, thank you, Shelly, and please don't be discouraged about the few who are thoughtless.ReplyDelete
Love this tag and the tutorial is fabby - thanks for sharing it! Will have to try it now!ReplyDelete
i'm still catching up with all the blogging i mist, but boy, am i happy i came by here! this tute is awesome... as is all of your art. guess i'm in love!ReplyDelete
Awesome tage and sensational tutorial, Shelly! I really love what you are doing with the enameled tags and hope to get a chance to try your techniques one of these days. Thanks so much for sharing your creative talents with us! So happy you joined in the fun with our tag challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!ReplyDelete
How cool is this technique .TFS :)ReplyDelete
Wow, that's a breathtaking tag, wonderful details. Thanks for the tutorial.ReplyDelete
Could you please email me? I have not been able to contact you via email so am leaving this on your blogReplyDelete
I LUV your technique! Can I call it my own and teach a class? JUST KIDDING! :D There are always going to be a few idiots out there who somehow think it is okay to steal from others. If it didn't tick me off so badly, I would feel sorry for them that they don't have enough imagination or creativity to come up with a single original thought of their own. I actually have 2 friends whose copyrights have been stolen by big companies. Go figure!ReplyDelete
...and your flower is incredible too! :DReplyDelete
Wozers...love the tag- amazing work! That is one cool tutorial- thank you!!!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, fun tag and great tutorial. I'm always amazed at the audacity of some folks. partly because to do something like that without asking permission or giving credit would never cross my mind. Thank you for your tutorials. :-)ReplyDelete
Lovely work here...It seems that people just don't get the proper etiquette when borrowing an idea from someone else until it happens to them, and it will..."Karma Kicks Ass" ....ReplyDelete
Fabulous Technique.. Wow.. cant wait to try! thanks for sharing! Hugs May x x x#62ReplyDelete
OOH, what a beautiful piece and the technique is really cool. I just bought some embossed chipboard, so if I try it I will message you and link back! Thankyou!ReplyDelete
This is so cool. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I am new to UTEE. Can this stuff "painted" on and can it be applied to say doll heads? Also, then, can you or do you use a hair blow dryer to set it?ReplyDelete
Thank-you so much,
thanks for share...ReplyDelete
