Tuesday with Tara {take 365} cheers to you

Happy Tuesday!  Cheers to you!

Today’s card is inspired by the challenge word over at the SNS fb challenge group “stencil” so I used two very different stencils in two different ways… along with a generous heaping of Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink!

My starting point was the tag, which features one of the Tim Holtz Doodle Art Stencils and some leftover crackle paste from another project.   This is a very detailed stencil with a ton of fun elements.  I sprinkled some Uncharted Mariner Distress Embossing Glaze over it and once dry, heated it.  I also just wiped excess paste off on the other corners of the tag to clean my palette knife which gives a bit of a resist to the Kraft tag base.  I inked over the entire tag with the Distress Oxide Ink and then added a bit of shading around the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide.

A smaller Kraft tag with a sentiment stamped on it and a ribbon bow adds a bit more texture, as well as a touch of bling.

I built my card on a 5×7 Kraft card base, stenciling and stamping in the same ink.  I’ve used Woodware’s Wheel stencil and my sentiment is by MFT.  The finishing touches are these glittery silhouette birdscut from somesugar crystal card stock.  They pretty much steal the show, but I am here for it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Love and Sunshine Tag

Hello everyone, Kia here today to bring you this tag I made for the Random Act of Cardness events, day 10, which does say floral! But, as sometimes happens, I had to change it up a bit. So my keyword should be Stars and Hearts I think.

I am using the Honey Bee Rainbow Dreams die set for this tag along with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink.

There is a coordinating stamp set to this, which I am sure will be in the store soon. which has the stamps that match the set. I used the hearts from that set to stamp and give me the shape, then fussy cut.

I then added the clouds, a total of 8 with one being on each side of the 4 clouds. This gives added weight to the tag.

I sponged on the Worn Lipstick to the clouds and running up the rainbow on all sides. I placed the tag in my mini Misti and stamped the sentiments again using the worn lipstick ink, then added a few die cut stars from the set.

To finish up I made a hole with my paper piercer in the middle of the rainbow and added the pink satin ribbon.

It was fun to do this tag for a change today. Thank you for dropping by.


Tuesday with Tara {take 347} Saltwater Taffy Smiles

Today I’m sharing a bit of created play with the latest Distress color bundle (which I was a bit slow getting my hands on), Saltwater Taffy!  It’s such a pretty pinky coral tone that really is a shade I’ve found to be missing in the Distress line on more than one occasion- and as I’ve played with it I’m really seeing that it changes depending on the medium and substrate (surface) you use it on. It’ll be a fun one, for sure!   As I do when I get most of the new collections, I get a bit overwhelmed at first and just start out playing- just trying it out and then figure out what I’ll make with it later!  Today that ended up being a delicate tag, which is a bit of a stretch for me… but I’ll be experimenting with the wild side of Saltwater Taffy later, too!

For the tag today I used the regular Distress Ink, Spray Stain, Embossing Glaze & Paint.  I stamped and embossed floral outlines stamps on a tag as well as a sentiment on a smaller white tag with the Embossing Glaze.  I colored some narrow crinkle ribbon (seam binding tape) with the Distress Spray Stain & let it dry overnight.

I smooshed Distress Ink (along with Peeled Paint and Salvaged Patina) on my Kraft sheet to watercolor the flowers loosely, then did a bit of a sheer white paint wash over it and brushed some Distress Paint over the edges of the tag when it was done.

The die cut cut butterfly is honestly a bit of a random touch… I rubbed it in excess ink on my Kraft sheet and then misted it with Mica Spray for some grungy shimmer!  The under layer has a bit of white pencil & distress glitter over Kraft.

All in all, this tag is a bit pretty and a bit grungy and a whole lot Saltwater Taffy!  Hope you like it- I’m looking forward to playing with this new color some more!

Inky hugs (and fingers!)
