Hey everyone! Welcome April! You know what the first of the month means ... a new challenge on the Mixed Media Monthly Blog. This month our challenge is Dimension.
This is always one of my favorite themes. I created a tag this month using products from our AWESOME guest designer, Wendy Vecchi. I used one of her stamp sets to create the focal point of my tag. Here's what I created
I added dimension to my project in several ways. I used Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium "Crazing" to achieve the crackle effect. I scraped the collage medium through a stencil and then let it air dry. Once dry I colored areas of the tag with Distress Crayons and blended them with a with a wet wipe. I stamped the flower image with archival ink onto watercolor cardstock. I then water colored it with distress markers.
The flower center adds great dimension as well - I colored a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Gumdrop with alcohol ink. I colored crinkle ribbon with distress markers. I used the Picket Fence Distress Crayon to color in the metal typed token.
Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Stampers Anonymous.
