A bit shabby chic I think (I never quite know exactly what
is classed as shabby chic lol).
And now for the step by step ..........................
I took some Creative Expressions Coconut Card Stock and covered
one with Distress Ink Pad Peacock Feathers and the other Evergreen Bough.
I flicked some water all over, it still makes me ooooooo and ahhhhhh when
I see all those water spots :-).
I mixed up some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Pigment Golden Malachite with some
water and flicked over the evergreen bough and Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour
Pastel Green over the peacock feathers.
I really love the way these turned out, normally I use the mists, but I didn't
want the whole thing covered, also I had non to really match. Think I shall be
doing this more in the future.
I took Distress Paint Picket Fence, Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough and
added some to my mat, I then swiped my tag through it and sprayed water over the wet
paint to make it move around.
I then used the matching ink pads to do the edges and any white spots,
I then flicked with water.
I also used the colours randomly through That Special Touch Mask Doodled Squares and
Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Lattice Work, I then flicked with water to soften it in places.
I used an old paint top and a old shop card and added some interest with the
picket fence paint.
I turned the tag around and added Studio 490 White Embossing Paste through the
That Special Touch Mast Distressed Dots.
The reason I turned the tag around is I knew I was covering up the bottom half of
the tag and I liked the bottom more so I just turned it around and cut the edges.
I used Archival Aquamarine to stamp the scrip from Creative Expressions Texture Stamp Set.
I used Cosmic Shimmer True White Embossing Powder and Ranger Perfect Medium
to stamp the edge of the Creative Expressions Wrought Iron Frame onto my
covered pieces of card, I did this a few times. I also did the words separately but didn't use
them in the end.
To extend the line I used a versa marker pen with a ruler and embossed.
I wanted some ribbon to be coloured with evergreen bough colour but I didn't have
any in distress stain so I just kept adding the following and amazingly got the
colour I wanted - Distress Stain Picket Fence, Peacock Feathers, Cosmic Shimmer
Vintage Mist Astral Mystery and the normal mist Pearl.
I added some more stamping with the script stamp and with Archival jet black,
I matted on black card stock, added the coloured ribbon with white ribbon and
a Creative Expressions Pearl Embellishment and some wire.
I used the words from Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers and some of the
Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs Botanical. I then finished it off with some
doodles with my journal pens.
Right that's all from me today, I will try and be back tomorrow with some more creations. Thanks for visiting.
Happy Creating :-)
