When I made my June tag (#1 as it turned out to be), I had experimented with different types of paper and card with the gorgeous stencil technique that Tim showed us on his blog. I showed the different ones I had made on my post and I though they all looked fabulous, so today I decided to have another play with one of them and came up with this.
I wanted to to use completely different elements than the last one and I gathered a few things that I thought would go together including the background made on canvas textured acrylic paper and decided not to waste any of it and have used it on a long card, which I think will be perfect for a wedding anniversary (I have a special one in mind for later in the summer).
I’ve used one of Tim’s ‘Found Relatives’ cards and trimmed it to fit
The flower is also made from bits left over on my desk and are coloured with Dylusions sprays which gives this wonderful bright luminosity to the card and blends beautifully with the distress inks on the background.....
..... and the remnant rubs work beautifully on both the film strip and the textured paper - I used the ‘Botanical’ sheet for the words I wanted to use.
The 1 and 0 are plastic clock numbers and given the altered surface treatment taught by Tim in Creative Chemistry 102 last year, plus I added a spray of dirty martini dylusions ink spray to the mix …..
…. and the trellis framework was cut from left over watercolour paper coloured with Dylusions sprays and painted and sprayed card which gives the different effects with the frame itself and the inserts.
As the background was made specifically for Tim’s June tag I shall enter it to the collection of fabulous makes appearing at the end of his post. If you haven’t seen Tim’s tag yet you really should pop over and see the fabulous step by step tutorial he provides to show exactly how to do the technique.
Sorry I am still not around much, with the sun shining more often the garden beckons plus I have been prepping and preparing for workshops and I also had the grandchildren this weekend for a sleepover (as they love to call it), so all in all life is rather busy. I hope this finds you all well and enjoying some crafty activities.
Have a great week.
