Here's my tag which incorporates some of her ideas and techniques.
I started by stamping the Old Letter Writing text on a piece of white card stock. I then inked up a large background stamp with embossing ink, stamped over the top of the writing and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I did have to do it a few times because the embossed pattern didn't turn out very well the first few times.
I then started rubbing Tim Holtz Distress Ink with my distress tool. I wanted to do a rainbow effect so I added color in small strips - blending and incorporating color to fade from one to another. I then cut it into a tag shape. I used some Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the edges.
I then embossed a piece of vellum with an embossing folder and had originally intended to stamp the sentiment on that behind the butterflies but the pattern of the tag made it hard to see the sentiment. So I trimmed another banner in the same size and put the dotted vellum piece behind the smooth one. Love it!
I diecut the butterflies, folded them a bit for some more dimension and then used a little bit of Glossy Accents in the center to mount them together. I used two very small bits of foam dots to adhere the pink butterfly to the vellum sentiment banner.
I finished it off with a silver eyelet and some white satin ribbon.
The resist technique here is really great for creating layers and dimension with stamping. I will continue to work it into my projects going forward. It does add time and steps to a project but it is SO worth the effort.
Hope you have a great week ahead!
