A Bit of Green and a Give Away!

Happy Sunday!  Just a reminder for everyone, that today is the last day to leave a comment on my Happy Mail post; for a chance to win an autographed copy of the new Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Volume III book.  I will draw the name tomorrow morning!

I can't have a post without something to share!  Here's a tag I created:

I used Memory Box die, Lucienne Tile (98774) and Memory Box Floral Mask stencil (88525) here.
The stamps were from Tim Holtz (Nature Walk) and Stamper's Anonymous (Classics#16).
I inked my die-cut tag with Distress Squeezed Lemon ink, heat set it, then with my Ranger Embossing dabber, dabbed on and around the die cut area.  I used a clear embossing powder, so this part acted as a resist.  Then sprayed with Lindy's Starburst sprays Rusty Lantern Lime, Yellow Roses of Texas, and Ponderossa Pines Olive, using the stencil and stamps between layers.  I let my tag dry a bit between each layer.
I did my stamping with Wendy Vecchi's Fern Green Archival ink.  To finish off the tag, I added in some Petaloo flowers, Kaisercraft flowers, Prima Ribbon, patterned paper behind the die-cut area, and a few hand-cut leaves  from my Kaisercraft Limelight patterned paper.  I usually add another piece of cardstock or patterned paper to the back of my tags, to cover all the drips and mess!

Thanks for dropping by, and have a great day!
