THIS WEEK’S THEME AT THE
Featuring stamps and dies by
You do not have to use the featured company to join in.
But… If you have some of their product in your stash
We would LOVE to see them used.
Here is my take on this challenge.
Mini Stencil Set 23 (THMST023) by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous
Stacked Baroque Thinlits Dies (662693) by Tim Holtz/ Sizzix
Tattered Banners Decorative Strips (657179) by Tim Holtz/ Sizzix
To start this tag, I die cut one of the Baroque shapes out of white card stock.
Using Wilted Violet Distress Ink, I stared in the center of the tag and inked outward.
Prize Ribbon was next. I added this ink around the edges leaving a patch of purple in the center.
To darken up the edges of the tag I used a generous amount of Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
I put the tag aside to dry and turned my attention to the stamp set.
Three of these fit on the front of this tag comfortably.
I stamped out my three tags and colored them in using bold colors.
I bit of Glossy Accents make the poison look dangerous.
Back to the tag.
Using the skull and crossbones from the Mini Stencil Set 23 and
Black Soot Distress Ink I stenciled on my image.
While the stenciled part was still wet, I used my water sprayer and flicked on a bit of water.
I let the water wick for a minute and then dabbed it off with a paper towel.
I put the tag aside again to dry and worked on the sentiment.
Tattered Banners Decorative Strips and Black Black8 Card Stock.
I simple die cut out the banner and folded it so that it fit nicely on the front of the tag.
I wrote on “drink me!” with a white gel pen.
Before I assemble the tag, I decided I wanted it to look a bit weathered.
Using a sanding block, I striped some of the edges of color exposing the white cardstock.
I also added a black edge around the whole tag using an alcohol marker.
To assemble this tag, I decided on the placement of my poison bottles.
I propped two of the bottles with foam tape.
I also added the banner to the front.
This completes my take on NOT A CARD
