E is for……….

Published March 28, 2012 by isisimaginings
Good Wednesday morning blog visitors, here we are at the middle of the week already, thanks for stopping by.
I’m taking a break from my ‘homework’ for Professor Holtz to show my first tag for this month’s Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tag Swap.  We had to make three tags this time round & it was STRESSFUL.  I’ve no idea why, the ideas just weren’t there.
Anyway, E is for Easter & Embossing.
Supplies:
Manilla tag, size 8
Chocolate Baroque stamps
Stampbord
Distress inks – Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive
Sizzix Embossing Folder – Stylized Flowers
Versamark, Clear Embossing Powder, Promarkers, Memento ‘London Fog’ ink
The first thing I did was to stamp a flourish onto the tag with Versamark & then left the ink to dry.  I stamped the flowers with DIs & then blended the same colours over the entire tag.  After embossing with the Stylized Flowers folder, I used a Versamark pen to ink over areas of the flowers, applied clear EP & heat set.  The butterfly was stamped on to scrap card with London Fog Memento ink, coloured with Promarkers & cut out.
I am purposefully trying to keep these tags simple, by not adding too many embellishments & instead focusing on techniques.  It’s a good challenge for me.
I hope to return tomorrow with my ‘F’ tag.  Until then,
Love & light
