This is the project I am entering in Linda Ledbetter’s Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge, based on techniques in the book by the same name, by Tim Holtz. This week’s challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. This wonderful technique is explained on page 39 of the book.
I was ready for a change in color choices for myself—I tend to get in a rut, so I forced myself to go a different direction. Adhered to a black shipping tag is a Kraft Resist Paper from Tim Holtz, covered with Dusty Concord Distress Stain, and inked around the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I used these Alcohol Ink colors: Raspberry, Purple Twilight, Wild Plum. The flower is Tattered Florals cut from crinoline and stained with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and Dusty Concord Distress Stain. The ribbon is from Tim’s Trimmings, stained with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
The butterflies are cut from Kraft Glassine with the die from Tim Holtz. Then I also cut the butterflies from grunge board and adhered the guilded butterflies onto the grunge board. For the antennae, I used wire I have had for many years.
Here is a close up of the butterflies.
This is one of my favorite techniques, and now I have a tag that is a different color than any I have made recently!
I am also submitting this tag to this fortnight challenge at The Stamp Man Challenge Blog.
