Time Flies for AALL & Create

Hi Everyone
I'm sharing with you today another make for AALL & Create using some of the stamps from the December release.

I have created this piece on a large That's Crafty MDF tag #10.

I started by covering the tag with a selection of card tags in different coloured card.

I then painted on a layer of clear gesso and then coloured all the tags using distress crayons to create a rusty grungy look.

I then stamped the A4 Edison Game #142 stamp, designed by Olga Heldwein, onto tissue paper in order to get a clean image over the lumps and bumps of the tag background. 
I then wanted to add the large butterfly which is part of another of the A4 stamps this is from Time Flies #143 designed by Tracy Evans. Again I stamped this section of the stamp onto tissue paper

and then layered this over  adding the tissue with matt medium.
The sentiment is also from Tracy's stamp which I stamped onto card, cut out, and then tripled embossed with clear embossing powder. I then popped into the freezer for 15 mins to allow me to the crack the thick embossing and then rubbed over Decoart antiquing cream in patina green to highlight the cracks.
I finished by wrapping some rusting wire round the bottom of the tag and added the sentiment over that.

  1. Just brilliant. Your layered tag technique pays dividends again - amazing rusted texture. And the clever layering of the tissue stamping is amazing too. Love this!

  2. A fabulous tag with the new stamps, the aging effects for the background look great and it is a super reminder for me about stamping onto tissue.
