Louise's (Kard Krazy) challenge this week was to make a tag with a few of my favorite things. That one had me stumped for awhile. But hey - it's a TAG! That's #1 on my list. And Distress Inks - love what you can do with them!
I was playing around with tag backgrounds the other day - I called this a successful failure. Successful because I do like the end result, but a failure from the stand point that I didn't quite achieve what I was trying for. I wanted to mask the sentiment background.
But I didn't take into consideration the sentiment before I did the masking work. The area under the mask was sponged with Distress Ink Spun Sugar, then I laid the mask down and sponged Worn Lipstick. With the mask still on, I sprayed Glimmer Mist and sponged a bit with Broken China.
The butterfly was cut with a Nestablities butterfly die. I sprayed glue before removing the die and hit it with glitter. HINT: Soak the Nesties in rubbing alcohol to remove glitter/glue. (oops...)
