Well...not really, but it sounds cool! I absolutely HAD TO participate in the Making Art Challenge #7 over at the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group, which is based on Tim's Distress Embossing Powder, because I missed the last one (No time!) and am going to miss the next.
Why am I going to miss the next one you ask? Well...ahem...it's because...ahem...I AM GOING ON A TRIP TO ENGLAND WITH DEBBY SCHUH!!! Yes...I am soooo excited! Debby is the ultimate tour guide, and she twisted my arm real hard and made me go on this trip, and then twisted my hubby's arm to allow it all to happen! I am one of seven, and we have a week of adventures awaiting! I'm hoping for good weather! And I am really hoping to see Hels!!! We have a plan in the works, and I have the Cheetos's ready, among a few other things! So of course, I am linking this tag to her Sunday Stamper challenge this week for "Nature"...it will be the last one for a while. After England, I am taking a little super secret side trip that I will want you to guess about a little later! ;0)
|Layers and layers of Distress Paint made the background! I love this stuff!|
|I painted Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper with Mustard Seed Distress Paint, dried it, and stamped the Wendy's flower with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I covered this with Spiced Marmalade Distress Embossing Powder. I should have removed a little here and there...forgot. I heated and removed the release crystals when it cooled. I cut this out, and inked the edges in the same Distress Ink.|
|I loved the Houndstooth so much, I kept going onto the ribbon.|
|The Blossom Bucket center needed to be orange for this, so Alcohol Ink came to my rescue. More doodling and outlining with Distress Markers helped the scene, and I finished the tag by inking the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon! Cherrio Chaps!!!
