Don’t you just love watercolor and Distress Inks? This tag card was actually an after thought believe it or not. The main card was sent full tutorial and all to the Creative Tips List as part of the free 12 Days of Christmas series. If you’re not on it – what are you waiting for – it’s free?
Back to this tag…I usually test stuff out when stamping with a new set and watercoloring, so this was my text swatch…thankfully it was just big enough for this tag die from Chalk Talk Framelit set by Stampin Up. I wrapped it with some gold string, popped it up over some 1/2 strips – you know you have those lying at the bottom of your Cherry Cobbler folder with other scraps…added an embossed sentiment, some sequins and wallah – not sure on the spelling there! Don’t you just LOVE the look? Can you believe it’s made using Distress Inks? You can use any dye based inks…but I just LOVE the result I get when I use Distress by Ranger.
It turned out so SUPER cute, I can’t stand it – this one is sitting on my desk at the moment…I just love the colors. For all the details on how to do the watercolor stamping…be sure to get on the Creative Tips E-letter list. I’ll be sure to get you the link for the tutorial…I promise! 🙂
I also wanted to enter this card in a fabulous challenge that I just love – Distress. I’ve participated in a few this past year…be sure to join in on all the fun – Virginia’s View is a fabulous way to get inky!
And one of my favorite stamp company’s challenge too – Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for Sparkly Creations. They’re featuring Kaisercraft products, but I don’t have any! So here are some fun sparkling clear sequins – my go to jewels of late by Pretty Pink Posh:
