I wanted to share this tag with you as I'm practicing my tags to get a bit braver with them! As I recently got some texture pastes and I'd only used them once I thought it was about time to give them another go. The best thing is that this fits in well with four crafty challenges: A Vintage Journey - Get Some Texture; Compendium of Curiosities 3 - Challenge 4 (CC3C); Crafty Individuals - Tag You're It!; and That's Crafty - It's All About Texture.
The first step was to use Tim's 'Layered Stencil' technique with the aforementioned texture paste - I can't share this technique with you as in line with the CC3C rules I need to refer you to Tim's third installment of the Compendium of Curiosities - this technique is on page 49. I did use a variety of stamps to shadow stamp the background of the tag - including some Crafty Individuals ones.
This I then overlayed with two ovals on which I've used another of Tim's texture techniques - this time Crumpled Kraft Suede (page 40 in Compendium of Curiosities 2!). I stamped these with a sentiment from my ever growing collection of Tim's stamps and a little heart.
A beautiful spray of flowers and a word band and it's all finished!
I'm really pleased with myself for venturing into the unknown!!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
