I pulled out old techniques and new to create this patriotic tag! It was such fun to make, and really put me into the celebrating spirit! I can't wait for fireworks tonight!
|I cut a piece of Ranger's Gloss Cardstock to fit inside a #10 Black Surfaces Tag. I applied drops of Alcohol Ink onto the Gloss and used a can of compressed air to blow it out into my fireworks, as per Tim's technique that he showed us long ago. LOVE the results! Then I die cut pieces I would use for the tag and used the instructions suggested for the technique.|
|I added Salty Ocean Distress Ink to the bottom of the tag for a water look, and inked in the new Hickory Smoke to the top of the tag in the sky. I then stamped the New York Cityscape onto the tag in Jet Black.|
|I added drops of Picket Fence Distress Paint to the sky as well for more firework effect. I attached the Gloss to the tag by sewing around the borders and also adding a strip of Film Strip Ribbon to the bottom. Then I added the houses at the bottom.|
I hope you can play along on this frosty challenge! Thanks for everything everyone!!! And be safe celebrating!!!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
