Compendium of Curiosities 2-Technique #8

packaging flowersb w border.jpg

This is my entry in the CC2 Challenge at Linda Ledbetter’s blog. This week we are using the technique that Tim teaches in his book, on page 62. It was really fun to “repurpose” the packaging from one of my dies. Now I have to start saving plastic packaging!

I first embossed the tag with one of the book plate texture fades, inked it, and then attached a sentiment that was stamped with Black Archival on natural sticky-back canvas (idea from Tammy Tutterow). I inked the edges of the canvas and the tag with Vintage Photo. Colors used on the tag: Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey Distress Inks and Sunflower Sparkle and Mandarin Perfect Pearls. The seam binding was colored with Dylusions Spray (Squeezed Orange).
