A Starry Thank you

Hello! I have had a busy week and am looking forward to Spring Break with my children. We enjoy just having some downtime together and I enjoy some crating time!

I decided to create a Tim Holtz tag. I began by stamping a Dictionary background stamp using Archival Black Ink from Ranger. I glued down a piece of tissue paper and painted it with several shades of Distress paint.

I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time (love that tool). I used a star stencil and Metallic copper paste to add some stars. Next I punched a piece of paper and stamped Thank you in Archival ink and sprayed Wilted Purple Distress stain.

I had my alcohol inks out that I was using to created Easter eggs so I added purple onto a Tim Holtz metal star.

After all was dry, I assembled the tag and decided last minute to spray a little more Wilted Violet in the middle.

It went pretty quickly and I like the end result. Often I am unsure of where I am going when I start “distressing.” I am learning that you just have to go along on the ride! It is always fun.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

I created this tag for the Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge Lucky Stars.
