Wood You Be Mine

Just a quick post from me today to share a tag that I found in my picture files.  I realized I had never shared it before.  I made it for CHA-Winter way back in January.

I used my Frosty Deboss technique on this tag.  It is a super easy technique that gives a really cool finish.

I added Distress Stickles to the grungepaper heart to give it lots of sparkle.  Biscotti Perfect Pearls give the banner some subtle shimmer.

I adhered the banner only on the ends with Tiny Attacher staples and in the center so that it would have lots of dimension.

I love the look the technique creates and the way that the crackle paint reacts with the ink colors.  In my tutorial I used Distress Stain to color my tag, but on this tag I used Distress Ink pads.

After the crackle was dry, I added darker brown ink to the edges and on some of the raised areas.  The way it settles into the cracks really accents the crackle and deepens the color.

    I just bought the embossing folder to make this tag-I loved it the first time you showed it.This is perfect timing-now I don’t have to search for the tutorial.

    Love the tag, Tammy!!! Seeing how much you use alphabet stamps inspired me to get mine out when I was making a simple card last week to send to our son at camp. It’s on my blog and I even linked to you for the alpha stamps inspiration!!

    I love anything you make. Your work is just my cup of tea. I have been using the Hero Arts Stamps (LC) since you introduced me to it. Now I have to get the UC and the playful set. You are just so blessed to have the gift of inspiring others. Love you!
