Splatter Some Fun!
is this month's motto and I love it!
You all know I love to sprinkle and splatter on acrylic paint, to smudge, spray and scrape it onto any possible substrate. And when I do so I use white sheets of paper to protect my desk. And when I manage to stop at the right point these protective sheets become beautiful backgrounds for new projects that I splatter and sprinkle even more paint or other media on ;)
In this particular case I used some of the fab Emerald Creek embossing powders to add splatter. To do so I needed a splatter stencil of course (and luckily I had one in my stash...deep down in my stencil box). This triple layer tag is the result of my splatter fun experience:
Emerald Creek Products used:
And here's a short how-to if you like:
Glue some protective paper onto heavy card and die cut three tags in various sizes.
Use a splatter stencil and an embossing dabber to add your splatter patterns to the tags.
Heat emboss as usual:
Darken the tags' edges by smudging on some black soot Distress Crayon.
Add a focal piece to your layered tags. I decided to go for one of the lovely Emerald Creek Cameo Charms and a glass cabochon from my stash.
I punched a circle from a left over scrap of the paper that I die cut the tags from, added a word sticker (I blended the edges with dark archival stamping ink) and glued all my layers (including the cabochon) onto the charm using DecoArt media Liquid Glass.
Once all had dried I stacked my tags using sticky foam pads.
I hope I managed to capture some of the bling from the embossing powders! It was quite dark outside (and when using my daylight lamps the glittery effect becomes almost invisible).
Once more the finished tag (so you don't have to scroll back to the top):
