This leaves the door WIDE open for me. I like to use so many products, that it was hard to choose just a couple. lol. Ooo, guess I coulda stuck a Reese's on there, too!
I was able to narrow it down to a few things:
Graphic 45 paper
Studio 490 stamps (Wendy)
Here's my entry:
And here is yet another example of my poor photography skills. I took this outside, leaning up against the house, which is light gray. Colors aren't as intense. Crap. You know, it's hard to see what the picture looks like on a screen that is 2 x 2 inches.
On the top half, I used the embossed layer resist technique. The Harlequin stamp I used is Tim's. Then I just left the bottom half plain, using distress ink to darken the edges. The flower, stem and leaves are grungepaper, the flower is Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade. Stem and leaves are Peeled Paint.
Some lace, other trim, and Enamel Accent dots.
Now, here's your tip 'o the day. The Make Art is on grunge board. On one of the sets of grungeboard letters, the inside of the "O" is a perfect little oval, just right for my sentiment. So, don't be throwin' the insides of the "O's" out, I'm just sayin'. They're stamped, inked and covered with Rock Candy Crackle paint, hence the slight sheen in the poor picture. lol
Ok, now on to a little plug for the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo group. No, this is not a paid advertisement. My friend Susan is hosting a tag swap on the group, a collaborative tag swap, which means you make 12 tags, send them to Susan, and get 11 back (one set is going to Wendy), which you then can mount on a background, and a diagram is provided for the layout. This idea was taken from the Collaborative Chaos tag project that Tim Holtz and Jennifer McGuire did for one of their classes. It's posted on Tim's March 30 blog post HERE, scroll down in the post. Jennifer also posted it, but I'm not sure which post it was. The All Things Tim Yahoo group just finished up one, it turned out really cool. So, Susan thought it would be cool to do with Wendy's stamps. I agreed wholeheartedly. If you're interested, you can join the group and sign up. Just click the picture on my right sidebar. Yes, we welcome international swappers.
Guess that's all the drivel I have to spew forth today. Although if you give me a minute... kidding. Go Be Creative!
