I'm finally catching up from the holidays and busy creating season for Tim Holtz and Simon Says Stamp. I am officially two weeks ahead of schedule with my DT commitments, and to celebrate I had a play date with my new Darkroom Door stamps. :)
First I inked my tag with Frayed Burlap, then stamped the stripes from the Grunge Marks set with Versamark and clear embossed. I added Shabby Shutters and Pumice Stone inks over the entire tag. Then I embossed a row in brass, then a row in Pumice Stone. I built some base layers with a section of torn book page, some holey tape, and some chipboard torn from a spiral notebook. I sponged the edges of the tag with Vintage Photo.
I used Tim's Wildflower dies, cut from chipboard and inked then clear embossed.
I absolutely adore this tiny numerals stamp. I circled 4 because we are in our 4th home together and have 4 kids. <3 The Tiny Tattered Florals and some jute twine finish the bottom bundle.
The Distress embossed Small Detailed Butterfly was in my pile of leftovers and I thought it added a great bit of texture and detail over the house. The house stamp (and numerals) is one of three houses in the Home Sweet Home set. I stamped in brown archival ink onto inky paper, then sketched with a fine black pen for interest.
I had so much fun creating this tag. I do hope it inspires you today.
I'm sharing with:
(My favorite tool is my heat gun! I use it to dry my inky layers & emboss.)
