And now for the step by step ......................
Mix Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste Warm Gold with Studio 490 Black
Embossing Paste, and use through a Special Touch Doodle Damask on a
Inkssentials Giant Tag #12.
I added the rest of the paste around come corrugated cardboard.
I cut out a picture from the paper stack Tim Holtz Lost and Found and added
Inkssentials Crackle Accents.
I took some thick chipboard packaging and painted with a mix of
Eco Green Black Paint and Cosmic Shimmer Paint Gold.
When the above is dry stamp Creative Expressions Filigree Frame with
Cosmic Shimmer Glake & Flitter Glue and then cover with
Cosmic Shimmer Summer Meadow Flakes.
At first when I stamped it, the glue picked up the cardboard seems
it was only cheap packaging, to solve this on the above
I used an anti static pad, but talc would work as well.
Next cover the entire tag with Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paint Olympic Gold,
it will look messy to start with.
Next use Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Autumn Twist.
Next use Distress Stain Walnut Stain in a spray bottle, and add at
the top and let drip down the tag.
Add in the wet areas Cosmic Shimmer Mica Pigments Dark Bronze, a little
at a time, then dry.
Give the corrugated background lots of the distress stain, then while it's wet add
splatters of the watercolour gold and brown and then the sprinkle of the mica pigment.
Next re ink the frame stamp with Adirondack Espresso and line up the
stamp over the gilding flake frame, emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder and
add some Cosmic Shimmer Mist Bronze Blush.
It looks like shading when slightly offset.
Next stamp the script from Creative Expressions Timeless Journey Stamp Set with
Archival Potting Soil and emboss with the clear embossing powder.
I also swiped the pad over the embossing paste and embossed with clear powder
to make them pop, I also ripped the bottom part off around one/third.
A close up.
Scrunch up some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Kraft Glassine Paper and then
add both brown ink pads over the top. Add to the back of the frame with the
picture at the front.
Ink up all the edges with the Adirondack Espresso, rip up some of the
edges as well and then emboss with the clear embossing powder.
Scrunch up more of the Kraft Paper and add around the edges.
Ink up all the edges with the brown ink pad.
Also ink the background edges and then add the tag on top. Add some
chain for the hanging. On the Frame add an Creative Expressions Vintage Metal Corner
and use some Tim Holtz Chit Chat Verbiages stickers for the sentiment.
