While I can't share the details of the technique I used as far as the dabber resist technique, I will share that the distress ink colors I used were Barn Red, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, and Vintage Photo. My dabber color was white. I also heat embossed around the edges of the entire card with Peeled Paint distress embossing powder.
I finally got the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix dies - YAY! I used what the ladies at Jo-Ann's insisted is crinoline (I wouldn't know the difference...except it doesn't really look like the crinoline Tammy Tutterow uses for her flowers...) to make the flower. I combined several layers in different sizes. I sprayed them with a combination of Glimmer Mists, homemade shimmer mists, and the top red one got painted with Glimmer Glam. I then used Rock Candy Distress Stickles over several of the petals sort of randomly. I used the Peeled Paint distress embossing powder on a black button and glued it in the center. I inserted a memo pin (love those), and attached an adage ticket, which I had inked lightly around the edges with some Barn Red distress ink.
I also added a couple pieces of Tim Holtz's Tidings tissue tape to a couple corners of the tag, and used my finger to apply some distress ink to the tape. I do so love how the white of the stamp stands out against the inks!!! Here's yet another pic of the stamped reindeer, as well as the tissue tape.
Someone reminded me that Christmas is just 2 months away! Have you started to prepare your handmade gifts?
