"12 tags of 2012" a new direction...
"hey there bloggers! well this is going to be a rather long post, so grab a coffee, sit back, and read on...
supplies: distress ink/fired brick/barn door/aged mahogany/worn lipstick/festive berries/frayed burlap; distress stickles/barn door; distress stain/spun sugar; paint dabber/snow cap; mister; heat tool; craft sheet; ink blending tool; glossy accents; #8 manila tag; sanding grip; grungeboard; seasonal salvage stickers; baubles; trinket pins; trimmings; philosophy tag; tissue tape; dies/mini love struck/mini hearts/vintage lace; texture fades/valentines; kraft core; stamps/valentines silhouette; grid-blocks; scissors; paper distresser; honeycomb paper
step 2: stamp on to the center of the tag (you'll see why) with firm pressure and clean paint off stamp.
step 12: place tag into texture fade (i cut a slit on the fold of my folders with a craft knife to allow me to slide the tag to through). *this is why i stamped in the center so i could emboss it.
step 18: apply tissue tape to the edge of one of the grungeboard hearts by gathering it to create a ruffle.
step 20: check out this video about this very cool honeycomb paper. die cut one mini heart and attach to the grunge as shown in the video.
step 33: once dry, stretch out and rub over the crinkled ribbon with an ink blending tool to distress further.
the details: i love the nostalgic look of this honeycomb paper. keep in mind this has a number of uses throughout the year.
Tomorrow, I'll have a lot to post following our class today with John Petersen. We learned so much and we were so fortunate to use the soon-to-be released new Memento colors from Tsukineko USA! Deb put a swatch board together for the store to go with the new Tsukineko catalog, and tomorrow's post will include pics of those new colors. You do know that 'new' colors means a catalog order is coming up. If you want to be sure that you'll be able to add any or all of these new colors to your stash, you better come in and fill out a 'Tsukineko' pink sheet!'
