The new "mixing techniques" tag is up on the Tim Holtz blog and I jumped on my scrap table to create one !
The tag is mixing dimensional die cut and textures.
I follow the steps to create this tag, but I didn't have all the great materials from Tim Holtz. So I improvised a little bit... I cut a piece of mailing box and teared it a bit on the surface. I applied some gesso on it and sprayed Tattered Leather and Black Magic glimmer mists over it (Tattered Angels), then add splatters of Antique Gold high impact paint (TA).I didn't have the butterfly die, so I used a chipboard to draw it on the back, and cut it with a craft knife.
For the background, I covered ivory cardstock with tissue tape (Tim Holtz) and cut a tag with a Sizzix die. I cut another tag, and use two thinlits (Tim Holtz/Sizzix) to create the dimension. I adhere this tag over the one with tissue tape and add gelatos (Faber-Castell) as I didn't have the new distress crayons...
A small metal jewelry piece with a twine finished the tag. The word inside came from a Cosmo Cricket stickers sheet.
This was very fun to create, don't hesitate to try these techniques !
