The theme at Crafty Individuals this month is tag it - now those of you who visit regularly will know how much I adore Crafty Individuals stamps and I was fortunate enough to win on their April challenge - so my entry for the june challenge involves the stamp I chose as my prize. Here's what I did:
I made the tag first - its a size 8 manilla tag that I have coloured with distress inks (mustard seed and tea dye mainly) then put it through an embossing folder (Darice) and rubbed staz on Over the top to bring out the pattern.
Next I did the main stamping - the chickens - I stamped with momento after first adding antique linen distress ink to the card I was stamping on. Then I used spectrum noir pens to colour the birds and the eggs.
Finally I created the bagground using scattered straw and antique linen distress inks and spritz and flick technique. Then I used elements of the build a meadow set to randomly stamp in archival sepia ink.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
