I hope your Wednesday has been a great one! Me...a bit slow and achy today! I had a fall last night and busted up my face and ear...Oh Yeah... and my Macbook Air flew across the room and broke into pieces...I'm fine, but the Mac is deader than dead! I hate that! It was fairly new....Gone! Oh well, I can't cry over spilled milk, so I took a few Advil and have been working on the birdhouse clock tonight. I hope to have it done soon, but I'm really enjoying putting it together and savoring the moment...You do that with some projects right? Grab a cup of coffee and just stare at it and think of the next step. I love that part!
Well, I wanted to cover a couple of things tonight...First, I wanted to share another tag with you tonight. It's kind of an abstract crazy tag, but I like how it turned out....Hope you do too...It was for this month's designer challenge for Inspiration Emporium...our challenge...to pull out our Stencils and Masks and create.
FLY BY THE NUMBERS
Believe it or not, there is book paper under the layers. I added that first with Multi Medium Matte from Claudine Hellmuth's Studio line. I then stenciled the tag with The Crafter's Workshop Numbers Collage Stencil and some Wendy Vecchi Black Embossing Paste. Next, I used Claudine Helluth's Summer Garden Stencil and some white Wendi Vecchi Embossing Paste for the flowers and added some Fired Brick Distress Paint to the petals. I stamped the background with Dina Wakley's Earnest stamp. I went over the whole tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I swiped Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter Distress Paint over the top of the black Embossed numbers and then headed for the dies....I cut the butterfly from Tim Holtz Fanciful Flights die and adhered it to the left bottom of the tag. Last, I pulled out the skewers...I know...They were on my desk so I said why not! I "swirled" the skewers with a black Copic marker and went over it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and glued them to the tag....Done...
Supplies Used May be Purchased from Inspiration Emporium
The second thing I wanted to share were the awesome hats that Cristi aka Gypsy made for Cesar and I. Here are a couple of videos on them....They Rock! Thanks Again Cristi!
