Another month at Creative Embellishments and another great challenge. This month it is about the sketch challenge, your interpretation. But the twist is to add stamped imaged on the project. I decided to experiment more with the clear tags Nicole has in the store. I learned a technique from Nikki K while I was over in England (when we could travel). I have been wanting to try it on the product in the store to see how it works.
Taking the large clear tag, I started with stamping on the background. I hit the twist straightaway. Using some archival ink and the Grunge Star Corner Stamp, I stamped the centre of the tag.
I added more to the background with the Distress Corner Stamp around the edges. Then this is where the fun begins. I did numerous layers here to get the effect I was looking for, a little crackle, some splashes and the background is done.
Moving on to the focal point. This was simple I didn’t want to take away from the background. I Used the Star Doodle Frame and added some embossing enamel and framed it the some mirrored Acrylic Gold Stars.
Pretty much done other than the Celebrate Title. A pretty simple tag but I really like the over all effect of it.
Here is the inspiration for the month!
I have a short video of the creative process:
