Tuesday with Tara {take 353} A Dream is a Wish

Tuesday, May 24th, 2022

Happy Tuesday!  Something about the soft color palette and shimmery touches gives this card a dreamy feeling…

I used a few alternate (aka leftover) pieces from previous cards- the flowers were some I made when I did this card and the butterflies were part of my inky play session when I first got my hands on the Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink!  The multicolored background layer was just some fun color blending, and the cut out is a combination of the taffy ink with a shimmery coat of bronze mica spray.  So pretty!

I’ve used the cutout letters from one of the bold text dies to spell WISH, and layered a chit chat sticker over it.  They’re kinda perfect together!  I inked the sticker with Saltwater Taffy regular distress ink before adding it to my card, which I think really pops layered over the patterned paper by Vicki Boutin which was cut with one of my slimline stackable dies.

I finished off the card with a touch of Nuvo glitter glaze to add to the shimmer.  I just love the springy vibes this card has and it definitely seems to me like it would bring a smile to it’s recipient…and hopefully to you!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 95}

Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to share with you a tag I finished up… it started as an experiment with Distress Oxide (the background is all faded jeans on a black tag) and I finished it up with some new botanical layers from The new idea-Ology release by Tim Holtz.

My background was inked and stenciled with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide on black, then I added some simply stamped roses by Dylusions over it.  I decided to bring some spring to it with butterflies and flowers from the new botanical layers- so many great pieces in this package, it is stuffed full with 83 printed & die cut shapes!

I tied everything together with a bit more yellow… I inked up some book print with gesso using Distress Oxide in fossilized amber & Distress Ink in wild honey.  I blended the colors with a wet paint brush then spritzed with water to see a bit of extra Oxide action 🙂

I selected a sweet sentiment from this “everyday greetings” stamp set by mama elephant and glued my layers together, then finished it off with yellow silk ribbon and touches of nuvo glitter drops.  These are a fun addition that’s like a mix of glossy accents & stickles!
