Can't guess what I used? Plain vellum! Urban Scrapbook just received the new colours in Dyan Reaveley's Dylusion Ink sprays and I had to try them. Love, love these new colours! I used Tangerine Dream, Pomegranate, and Squeezed Orange on my flowers. The die-cut leaves (Sizzix Spring Greenery 659573) were sprayed with Chopped Pesto.
I started off with my die-cut tag, some Wendy Vecchi Translucent Embossing paste, and the Doily stencil from Tim Holtz. I taped down the stencil with painters tape, and applied my embossing paste. Before removing the stencil, I sprayed immediately with Dylusion's new colours Chopped Pesto and Ground Coffee. It gave it a the stencilled image a different look, some areas soaking it in more. Have to play with this technique some more! Once my tag was dry, I added a few swipes of Distress Picked Raspberry stain and Tangerine Dream spray to the tag. I die-cut a doily from Sizzix Tim Holtz On the Edge Doily, and folded about 1/4" of the edge behind my tag. I usually glue another tag backing onto my tags to finish them off as I seem to make such a mess on the back. This time, I left the bottom corner free of adhesive and curled back the top bottom corner.
I adhered my colourful vellum tea roses and leaves onto my tag. I love that middle rose pomegranate colour! I added in a Picked Raspberry painted Tim Holtz Framed Alpha Part(TH93117) and stained Seam Binding ribbon to complete my tag.
