My Grange Fair Projects

So for the annual Grange Fair, I decided to do a bit of papercrafting.  I am also entering these into the Simon Says Stamp Summer Holidays Childrens Challenge.  I made these two tags-all of recycled materials.

The first one, Imagine, I used the lid from a tomato container to make the daubered cover.  I inked the letters with Black Soot Distress ink, used perfect pearls Forever Blue and Forever Red, and then applied 2 coats for UTEE. 

The second one was made from old magazines from around the house.  I ripped the pieces from magazines and put them together to make the tree shape.  I stamped dream with my trusty changeable stamp set.
Renew, Reuse, Recycle!!

Grungy Monday 7: Color Blocking

For Grungy Monday 07 I've created this bright tag.  This is a technique from Tim Holtz.  I used my favorite gear and robot stamps and  lots of different inks.  Of course I added embossing because that's the best! 

Tim Holtz Distress Stains

My family and I are really into crafting.  Right now, we really love TIM HOLTZ.  You should check out his products and his blog at  Check out my video to see how I've used some of the newest products available.  I should have dried the tag again after I added the lines, because the distress powder sticks to any wet spots.  Make sure you dry your tag really well before you stamp the butterfly.
