I made this for the challenge over at Stampin' 'D Amour
The challenge was to make a card or ATC with either of the following themes:
2. Your favorite Olympic sport
You may use any stamps, images, techniques, etc.
I chose to make a tag instead of a card or ATC. The ginko's were stamped with sand acrylic paint across the top and bottom of the tag and left to dry. I saturated the tag with a mixture of Distress Reinker/Water/Perfect Pearls gold. I used two mini misters, one with Mustard Seed and one with Fired Brick. I love the intense color and the variations you get with the two shades. It's hard to tell in a photo. The images are all by Innovative Stamp Creations The words and ginko leaves are from Women of the Orient ATC's sheet and the umbrella girls are from the Lovely Geisha's sheet. I stamped them in Versafine onyx black and added a chinese coin, ribbon and a tassle to finish it off.
