I am doing a demo at two Scrapbook shops in the next month, so I am madly preparing inspiration pieces to be on display prior to my visit to hopefully inspire people to come and learn all about Tim and Ranger's products.
This is my latest one all in pink and purple. I know when people here in South Africa think of ink and Tim - they think grunge and brown all at the same time. I am on a mission to change peoples perception of these products. They come in 36 yummy colours and I am slowly building up a collection of them. So far I have 10 colours to play with in the distress inks, colour washes and Distress stains.
I sprayed my craft mat with water after I had made the papers and lay the tag in it. I dried it, stamped the sentiment and butterflies with Pitch Black Archival ink, sis some in the perfect pearls and swiped the whole tag with clear embossing ink and poured a layer of clear embossing powder on it and heated it. I helped it curl at the two corners and inked the backs with Distress ink black soot.
I die cut the butterfly out of some of the paper I had made earlier and put diamond stickles on the bottom layer of the wings before I put it together.
I made the flowers with two each of 4 different sizes, inked them and layered them up. Joined them with a brad. Crunched them together, opened them up and done!
I used Tim's Pappillion stamp set in the background of the lighter central piece and his flourish with Pearl paint dabber on the flourish in the background of the bottom layer.
I had such fun doing this page, I am not sure it is legal!
My next one will be Blue I think..
