Today's tag is for the Everything Wendy Vecchi challenge, which was to use Distress Embossing Powder on a project. (You can see Wendy's sample here) I decided to go with a tag for my project and, staying true to myself, pulled out every Wendy Vecchi stencil, stamp set, and paste that I own to create the project you now see!
I started by adding some light color to the background of my tag using Gathered Twigs and Old Paper Distress Ink. I added just a few stamped images from the Parisian Art stamp set. I then secured the Brick Wall stencil over my tag and smooshed (that's a technical term) my Versamark ink pad into the open spaces of the stencil. I then carefully removed the stencil and added Fried Brick and Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder to the design. Hit that baby with a heat gun and voila, had a snazzy background.
Then I got busy with the Fresh Flowers stencil and white embossing paste. I found a piece of heavy duty cardstock and applied a thick layer of embossing paste to the stencil. Once the paste was dry, I used Distress Markers to color the flower. (The little black dots are just a thing I do...I don't know why, I just like dots!) I then cut out each part of the flower and glued it (loving 3 in 1 glue lately!) to my tag.
Next came the Classic Words stencil and a black marker, some Idea-ology Film Strip, along with this great sentiment from the Original Art stamp set. And no project is complete without a butterfly...this one is from a Maaartha punch.
That's it for me today folks, hope you enjoyed the project! Now go out and get crafy!
