So I went for a tag, and brown distress as they always make me smile and butterflies,
so here is my make :
There is still another week to enter so make sure you pop across here to see all the brilliant Dt makes and maybe follow your muse and pop in an entry.
Here are the details of my make:
I started with a size ten tag and embossed the corners using the wonderful flourish embossing folder..i repeated this using a small part of the folder in the top and bottom corner.
Then I inked the tag using a combination of antique linen, and frayed burlap, then adding areas of walnut stain, I do love the colours of distress and the way they can be layered and blended. I used the large text stamp to over stamp the whole tag, using frayed burlap.
Cool that you can make a wonderful piece in just one colour.. brown, with so many layers of that colour in different shades, hope that make sense!?
I stamped the beautiful Tim Holtz papillion butterflies onto a piece of card in coffee archival and added colour using a waterbrush and frayed burlap and walnut stain pens.
I then clear embossed three times to give a nice glossy texture and contrast.
To complete I added an ideaology word band ..and rubbed snow cap paint dabber into the lettering to make it stand out. I also added trinket pins for a couple of the butterflies body..another texture.
Finally I coloured seam binding...just love this stuff so textural and versatile as it can be coloured..so easily.
There you have it my first make for the Frilly and Funkie DT..just want to say a huge thanks to Linda for having me as part of here amazing team x
