Possibility tag

Hello and welcome, 

Today I will show a tag made with Tim Holtz techniques and products. I was inspired by Simon says stamp challenge, Bright, Cheerful colors and Tim’s YouTube lives.

I started to cut a tag from Distress white Heavystock, with Sizzix die 656938, Tag & Bookplates. One of my most used dies. I inked my craft mat with Kitsch flamingo Distress ink and water and layered til I was satisfied. Then I used Tim’s Microglaze technique with stencil THS058 Countdown, and Distress spray Carved pumpkin, Distress Oxide sprays Picked raspberry and Spiced marmalade. 

Then I used the same stencil and Crackling campfire Distress ink on the top part of the tag. I also stitched around the edges with my sewing machine after I inked all the edges with Distress ink Crackling campfire. Next step was the white embossed parts, using white embossing powder and CMS328 Entomology stamps and Distress embossing ink. The last step was the black stamped images, using Archival ink Jet black and CMS 225 Correspondence stamps. 
The “Specimen” word is a remnant tub from “Specimen”. 
I also used a Quote chip which I sanded and inked with Distress ink Crackling campfire. 

The dragonfly is from Tim’s new set “Funky insects”. I cut it out from Distress White heavystock and then used my Distress inks for the colors. I also glued a Idea-ology Transparent wing between the second and third layer of the insect. I first heated the transparent wings with my heat tool and bend them a little bit, for dimension. 
I glued the tag to a white card blank which I made from regular white cardstock. 
Here you can see the numbers in the background from the Microglaze technique and also some of the white embossed stamps. You can also see the difference between Distress spray stain and Distress Oxide
spray. I used Spray stain on the top and bottom of the tag and Oxide spray in the middle. 
I love the look from the Microglaze technique.

I spritzed some water on the pieces I colored for the dragonfly.

I will try this tag in the “Bright, Cheerful colors” challenge over at Simon says stamp Monday challenge .

Thank you very much for visiting my blog today, 

Take care, 
/ Susanne

  1. I love it, that contrast between the background and the drangonfly is awesome. And all those textures you've created are great. María, xx
