Best Friends

I made this for today's sketch challenge on Splitcoast. Roxie always comes up with the best challenges for us. All images and inks are by
The best friends tag and kraft strip that says wonderful world are also from Rubbernecker from a Butcher Block Sky & Sage paper pack.
The white layeres were created by inking my stamps with Tim Holtz Distress inks. First, I inked the entire image using Faded Jeans, rock n rolled the image in Tea Dye and then a little Black Soot. I spritzed the rubber with water before stamping. The dragonfly block on the tag was masked off and then stamped with baroque background that was inked in Weathered Wood & Tea Dye, spritzed and stamped. The tan layer and collage panels were sponged with Walnut Stain ink and the light blue layer, tag and tan strip were sponged with Faded Jeans. I love TH inks because they stay wet longer and blend so well. The tag is on dimensional foam tape.


  1. I love seeing these tags close up!!

    That is soooo cool how the inks blend!!

  2. Wow! this is gorgeous! I lvoe that color combo together!!! {SMILES}

  3. This is yet another one of your great cards - I wish I lived near you so that you could show me how to do collage type stuff - I love it but am not very creative!
