I am back today with a tag I made for a swap with The Art for the Creative Mind Yahoo Group.
Over at The Craft Stamper Blogspot the Challenge is Texture. I decided this would be the perfect challenge for my tag - I do love texture. I started out by embossing my tag with a Tim Holtz Brick Embossing folder. I inked up the embossing folder to get the bricks red. You will see later that I went back over the raised areas with some black Distress Ink.
I used some blue acrylic paint and some Crackle Paint on my window for more texture.
I used a Tim Holtz Stamp for the butterflies. They are colored in with Distress Markers. The blue background is inked with more Distress Ink. I wanted to show you that my window is popped up from the background and I used a clear piece of plastic for the window area. It is hard to get a picture of this without getting the glare.
Next I added in some flowers and die cut branches.
Lastly I added in a metal embellishment that I painted and inked up.
I hope you enjoyed this post and as always thanks so much for stopping by!
