Texture by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, I'm sharing with you today my first post for the September theme - Texture! Today my post you could say is quite diverse, I've gone from Gothic shabby to CAS.

My tag I started by mixing some texture paste with mica powder to get this lovely bronze colour, I inked up my stamp from the Gothic Fragments set using Versamark inkpad and spread my texture paste over using a spatula and left it to dry for 24 hours, once dry I carefully peeled it off and cut off any ragged edges, my background is Distress inks blended and spritzed with water and dried, I used another stamp from the set using the same colour distress ink to partially stamp and a couple of stencils inked through to create visual texture, I sprayed over with a copper mica spray lightly and edged the tag using a brown Distress inkpad, I then adhered my texture paste element, cut the edge to fit and rubbed over with a copper gilding wax, the sentiment is from Journal Today

I made a set of CAS Christmas cards using a linen texture card for the base, I simply stamped the beautiful design from the Snowflake Flourish set using a Versamark inkpad and heat embossing using pastel pearlised embossing powders, each card is slightly different by using different positioning of the design and different colours of EP. The sentiment is from Holly Script, I've included some close up shots as the designs being so pale don't show up so well with my photography.

 

 

I hope you like my creations and I've given you some inspiration, I certainly enjoyed making them, see you again later this month with my second post, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx

  10. The tag is gorgeous, but I don't recommend tryng the technique like I did! It requires an enormous amount of skill. While I'm saving my stamp from total destruction, I don't think I could achieve that effect in two lifetimes!!
