There it is - the second country song title. One of my favourites from my childhood and I think when you see the tag you will realise why I had to have that title!
I must admit I adore the layered challenge from Frilly and Funkie. I have to restrain myself a bit because I love it so much I would make an item daily for it - Thanks so much for picking that challenge! I won't sit here declaring I am good at it, I really have always loved layering card. It is a beautiful effect and I won't ever tire of it.
So anyway - I had to make one more item.
I used a tag this time and covered it in a piece of the Tim Holtz Melange Tissue paper...I LOVE this paper!. I then covered that in Gesso and once dry I swirled it in a mix of Old Paper, Weathered Wood and Tarnished Brass DI's. It was a lovely effect and after a few more dabs and drying in between I had a turquoise distress effect.
I then began making layers of card -
- Old Paper DI blended onto card and then covered in script stamp in Gathered Twigs.
- A strip of card covered in Antique Linen Stain and then stamped with a flourish stamp in Tarnished Brass.
- A piece of card coloured using wrinkle free distress in Weathered Wood, Old Paper and Tarnished Brass
- A sheet of card covered in Weathered Wood stain and stamped with Weathered Wood DI with a flourish stamp.
The word 'LOVE' was cut out from an embossed sheet and covered in Antique Linen Stain. I cut hearts out of several of the prepared sheets of card.
A butterfly was cut out from the 'Melange' tissue and stuck to card before being stained with Weathered Wood and Antique Linen, brushed with some Fresco Chalk acrylic paint (Only bought this yesterday at Stamperama and after some very fun experimenting I am now a huge fan!) and edged with Gathered Twigs. Rust wire formed the antennae.
Some flowers were stained with Weathered Wood and Antique Linen DI's and attached to the tag.
I must admit I like this tag...not only has it got the lovely layers there is also the wonderful dimensional effect from the butterfly and the wire swirl coming away from the tag....It was a joy to make.
I do hope you like my second 'layered' creation.....Please leave a comment if you are passing by this blog as I would love to know you were here.Take care and see you next time!
