For this one you need to make a vintage or shabby chic project of your choice and remember to include some embossing. Use your favourite embossing methods (wet, dry, heat, or any other techniques you want to share) - just enjoy your embossing!
The problem with this challenge was I just couldn't make up my mind which kind of embossing to do! I decided to use an MDF tag shape that I've had for a while. I painted it first with Gesso then I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of paper and cut out the shape around the words. I placed the piece of paper onto the tag then used the Tim Holtz stencil and Ranger Texture paste and spread it over the top. When the piece of paper was removed it left the perfect shape for the text to be stamped later. After the paste was dry I painted over the whole tag using Fresco Finish paints creating a gradient of colour. Then I replaced the stencil and pressed Versamark ink over the top, removed the stencil then sprinkled Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder over the top. The powder melted beautifully over the texture paste ! I used the same stencil and added some stencilling to the area without paste then stamped the sentiment.
I pressed the edges onto the Versamark pad then used Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder again.
I love the flowers from the Wendy Vecchi Artful Life stamp set. I painted some white card with Fresco Finish paint then used Snowflake Fresco Finish over the top which knowck back the colour.
The flowers were cut out and then layered onto the tag.
I stamped some leaves from the same Wendy Vecchi stamp set and cut them out and arranged them among the flowers along with some pieces of coloured twine.
The sentiment is by Yvonne Blair, if you've not seen any of Yvonne's stamps you really need to check them out in Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique, they are all fabulous !
