selective embossing...PART 2...

but this time...

here's the TWIST...

it's...
WITH COLOR!

again, only the main image is embossed, 
but as you can see, 
the color from the tag does not show thru the flower, 
like it did yesterday...


start with a #5 kraft tag...
I'm really liking these smaller sized tags...

stamp this flower with jet black archival & dry...

I used the distress markers shown to color & shade the flower & leaves...


use the Perfect Medium Pen to go over the flower/leaves, 
then sprinkle with clear embossing powder & heat to emboss...



now comes the background colors...
faded jeans, rusty hinge & peeled paint applied with the blending tool...


mist water onto the craft sheet, 
stamp into the water ONCE & stamp over the tag...

allow the water to sit for about 10 seconds, then dry...


this creates a flippin adorable
SIMPLE background...
which appears to be BEHIND the flower...

another reason why I LOVE distress!
it's pure MAGIC!


next, I stamped my not-scary spider & 
wish with jet black archival & dried them...

then used my striped border stencil with black soot distress ink on the blending tool to add a tiny border at the top & bottom of the tag...

my Blossom Bucket crow is a perfect fit...

here's the finished tag again...

I used the tarnished brass distress stain to add 
a beautiful metallic edge to the tag...


 to review...

same technique from yesterday...
but yesterday, the flower had NO color...


here's the same daisy stamp below...
but this time using today's technique...

WITH color...

coloring in the image with the distress markers 
totally changes the look of the daisy...

change the background stamp & the sentiment...
and you get this...


oh...I stamped the daisy 2 times, cut out one & layered it on the sample above...

again...
simple, but so much fun...

To color or not to color...that is the question of the day! Nope, the question for me is..which flower bed do I start weeding first...it's not raining today!!!!!!

Carol McCready said...

Loving these posts. Have fun in Michigan.

Nice technique. I especially love the polka dot stamp in the water technique for the background. Can't wait to try a tag like this.

Okay, I'm late to the party - but I am EXTREMLY ENTHUSIASTIC about your molding paste. I held off ordering it because I had a couple different types, but I kept reading about it, so I finally gave it a try. It's so amazingly light and fluffy in the jar - takes paints incredibly, and then stands up to a pretty good amount of abuse when dry!! It's AMAZING!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Great Stuff.

Oooooh, I really do like this tag, Wendy. And as of this moment, I'm 'needing' the Perfect Medium Pen! (No surprise, probably.) Glad y'all had a fab show in Novi last weekend. Hope your travels home were safe & easy.
