Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Kara and her BFF Sydney found themselves with nothing to do Sunday afternoon. So, they asked if they could borrow some supplies and make a tag project at the kitchen table. I was busy cleaning the studio.
I had recently shown Kara how to use embossing ink and Perfect Pearls, and she wanted to show Syd. She and Syd both like things heavily distressed and full of layers. They refer to these techniques as "messing it up," and are both really good at it.
In the two pictures above, they have inked their tags with different color Distress Inks and blended with a sponge. They have also sprayed the tags with Glimmer Mist. Kara in the first photo has stamped her tag with Perfect Medium (clear embossing ink) and is spreading Perfect Pearls in gold over it to bring out the stamp. Syd, in the second photo, has added words printed from the computer.
Here's Kara's finished tag with a cute hot air ballon stamp as the top layer. It says, "You blow me away." Isn't that cute?
And, here is Sydney's finished tag. She used a ferris wheel stamp and wrote, "You spin my head right round." Love it! Thanks girls for sharing your project. You did this one on your own, and I am really proud. xoxo
