OK....this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show
it's all about DISTRESSING and we love that!!
Now, I would normally run to my Distress Inks, but this time I decided to go with another type of ink, Color Wash. I had bought a new book the other day and had been wanting to try a technique they talked about Batik.
I pulled out my Melting Pot, Beeswax and pariffin (to help with cracking).
I brushed the wax onto the Canvas Corp Tag, over a stencil created using the Sewing Room die. When cooled, I cracked the wax then I spritzed on various Color Wash colors.
Next, I melted the applied wax with my Heat Tool, to finish the wax removal I ironed my piece between pieces of newprint also heat setting the color wash.
Tiny Attacher into to create her dress. With the left over fabric, I created the fringe on the bottom of the tag.
I cut a flourish out of Grungeboard as part of the spool/flower cluster in the corner. I accented my "girl" girl with a Liquid Pearl necklace and a hung a Bauble from her waist on a Jump Ring!!
SOOOOO.....there you have it....Distress. What comes to mind why you say that word? Well pull out your supplies and create a goodie and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog!!
Who know you could win this.....
