Vintage tag with Astrid

Hello Shimmerz friends! Today I am sharing my second project for March, - a large tag (size #10)

These are the yummy Shimmerz products I used:

Paste-Eez: Puttin On The Glitz
Inklingz: Tarnished Treasure
Spritz: Treasured Hymn
Vibez: Quit Yer Wine-n

I have a few process photos which I will share with you below:
I covered my tag with random strips of paper and then layered on some of the Paste-Eez, using my fingers. While this was still wet I sprinkled some embossing powder into the wet paste and then dried with my heatgun.
Here you can see the textures this creates a bit better. The paste has such a lovely creamy consistency, almost like whipped cream.
I wanted to add some crackle, as I love the effect the sprays have when you spritz it on. This time I used Tim Holtz's Crazing medium, again putting it on quite thickly with my fingers which created some nice largish crackle. 


The stencilling was done with a black Distress Crayon.
This little Spring Fairy digitally created and then fussy cut became my focal image. I added some shadows with the help of the Tarnished Treasure Inklingz and a Stabilo All pencil.

Well, that was pretty much it apart from just a little stamping in the background.

And like usual, if you want to order some product from the store and want a free gift, - just follow the guidelines below.


Thanks for your visit today
