Birthday tag

Challenge #5 over Compendium of Curiosities 3 is distress watercoloring (pg 39). I made a birthday tag this time:

First I stamped my images with archival ink (Stampers anonymous CMS 154) and I colored them with distress watercoloring technique.

Than I took a manila tag #10 colored it with distress ink (mustard seed and wild honey) and using Tim Holtz’s dot fade stencil and distress marker spritzer I created a confetti effect on my tag.

I used Tim Holtz’s framework Chevron die to cut my embellishment and I covered my chipboard with liquid platinum embossing powder. At the bottom I stamped with archival ink happy birthday from Stampers Anonymous CMS 155. At the top I added mirrored stars embellishments. My ribbon I colored with distress stains.

This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration emporium where you can get all Tim Holtz products. You can join Compendium of curiosities vol 3 challenge #5 at this link.

  1. Ruth! What a fun tag!! I love how you added the chevron as a chipboard piece and that you colored your ribbons with Distress Ink!

  2. Ruth…I LOVE this! Your tag using the smaller birthday celebration blue print stamps is awesome! I love your stenciled background and the chevron die cut. The four water colored and cut out pieces you’ve added down the right side are a great design! Love the coordinating ribbon and the mirrored stars, too! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. ❤ Candy
