I've taken techniques learned in the past few weeks to make 3 tags for a swap. I'd also like to enter these into the WOW embossing powder nature or vintage inspired April challenge and the Craft Room Ink- it Challenge
I do hope the recipients see this as part of my learning curve but it was fun trying. The pictures don't really tell the whole story as there is a lot of touchy feely going on here too thanks to Fran Seiford of Stampendous for demonstrating 'Frantage' on TV recently.
The left hand tag used a marbled distress background, I stamped swirls in black archival and the butterfly in perfect medium before sprinkling random drops of assorted WOW embossing powders and mica flakes over the image and heating from below. The middle tag used a resist embossing technique, I used salt mixed with the embossing powder to get the resist. The third tag has a distress stained background and I've stamped with picket fence distress stain and black archival, the stamps are from Clarity.. I went over one of the swirls with a versamark pen before sprinkling with embossing powders etc as above.
