Eye See You!


Hello faithful followers! I am having one of those days when I have multiple Design Team Posts to share with you, so thank you in advance for your patience.  The tag above is for the newest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, where my Design Team Sister, Laura Bomber, has chosen for us to create a project "Without Using Ink."  We are permitted to use ink for coloring in.  As always, our challenge is supported by FlonzCraft and one lucky participant at the end of the challenge will be chosen to receive a gift voucher for $20.  Now if you follow my blog on a regular bases, you know that I am primarily a card maker!  I thought I was going to die when I had to make my first tag for FSC back in 2011!  For some reason, I just thought this would be a good challenge to use a tag.  I began by smooshing various fall colored Distress Paints onto my Craft Mat.  A bit of water mist came next and then I dragged my tag through the paints for my background color.  I would normally distress the edges with Vintage Photo or another color of Distress Ink, but I resisted and instead used some Gathered Twigs Distress Paint with a blending tool. Next, I embossed the tag with some White Embossing Paste by Dreamworks through a Tim Holtz stencil.  In the center of the tag, I pounced Black Soot DP through another Tim Holtz stencil.  The focal image by Lost Coast Design was stamped with more Black Soot DP and colored in with the allowed Distress Markers.  For more contrast, I added Idea-ology Rub-ons onto the tag. I painted several chipboard pieces with more Black Soot DP and dabbed some Spiced Marmalade DP onto a wood piece by Idea-ology.  The gauze behind the focal image and at the top of the tag where colored with more Distress Paints as was the metal tag.  I must say, I was out of my comfort zone for this challenge on many fronts and kept trying to reach for my ink pads, but that's why it is a challenge, yes?!  I'm glad I gave it a go, and I hope you will stop by FSC to see what the rest of the Design Team has created and then make a project of your own.  Thanks for dropping by!  Yvonne
