Bright & Beautiful Tag

Hello again!

After a breathtakingly beautiful road trip down South (of Western Australia), I am back with a Festive tag...  And an easy (not so new) technique. For this tag I used the Bright & Beautiful stamp set (135029 Clear) from the Holiday catalogue (p 25) and the coordinating Star Framelits (133723) from the Inspire. Create. Share catalogue (p 231). The Technique is a Embossing resist technique - very easy and with instant impact. I heat embossed the medium-sized star from the set with Clear Embossing powder (109130) and then used a Sponge Dauber (133773) to sponge my darker colour in the centre of the star (use circular movements) - I used Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin' Pad (126985) - and the Smoky Slate Classic Stampin' Pad (131179) for the outside of the star. Then I sandwiched my image between White printer paper and dry-ironed over the image with the iron on its highest setting. This removes the embossing powder and leaves a watercolour type of effect. Pretty! Any detailed stamp will work beautifully. Think background stamps!

The rest of my product list:

131002 Wisteria Wonder A4 Cardstock
108615 Perfect Plum A4 Cardstock
106549 Whisper White A4 Cardstock
102283 Versamark Ink pad (the watermark image on the one star)
109131 Silver Embossing powder (for the JOY sentiment in the centre)
134572 Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding Ribbon
132976 Silver Metallic Baker's Twine

Try this! The possibilities are endless! Also do yourself a favour and have look at all the lovely Seam Binding Ribbon colours on page 207 of Inspire. Create. Share. I looooove Early Espresso (134582) and Night of Navy (134571)!
