Here’s Bad Sherry peeking around a pile of new rubber at our Texas gathering. Rubbernecker Stamp Co. is releasing 7 new backgrounds today! Stampy Backgrounds is also the Wacky Wednesday #5 challenge today. Run on over to the blog for all the deets.
My tag features 3 of the new background stamps – French Script, Flourish & Wildflower. The flourish was embossed in clear on a large shipping tag. 3 mini misters of pearlized distress mix were then spritzed on the tag. Combinations include: Fired Brick Reinker/Blush Perfect Pearls, Mustard Seed/Perfect Gold & Broken China/Pearl. I started with Mustard Seed because it was my lightest shade and spritzed the entire tag. Broken China was then sprayed on the top and right hand side of the tag. Because the mustard was still wet, the mixture combines to make a pretty green in areas. Then, Fired Brick was added to the bottom left portion of the tag. To remove the ink and reveal the tag base under the embossed flourish background, place a sheet of copy paper over the tag and iron using a cotton setting with no steam. You will see the embossing powder melt into the copy paper indicating that the embossing has been removed.
The Wildflower background was stamped over the top of the ironed tag using Adirondack Pitch Black ink. I stamped the butterfly trail by using a black marker on a portion of the flourish background stamp. The butterfly was die cut with Prism Black using Making Memories Slice, stamped with the French Script Background inked with Adirondack Snow Cap ink. The die cut was finished with a spritzing of the Mustard Seed/Gold pearlized distress mist, sponged with Snow Cap and brads for the body. The butterfly is mounted on foam mounting tape. Did you notice the gorgeous ribbon? Rubbernecker is now carrying Prism and May Arts Ribbon and 7 Gypsies paper and various other items from 7 Gypsies. I used the gingham on the top of the tag and also as a mat under my dymo label sentiment. The dymo letters were swiped with Stazon Timber Brown to antique them a little. The bottom is finished with black eyelet holes and glass leaf charms. I also sponged the edges of the tag with Adirondack Pitch Black.
