If you want to see some tips on how to do it , check out "Craft TV" this week.
I had to give it a whirl...so here's some quick samples .
I had found these ugly faded pink plastic doilies at our local junk/treasure shop, so I used them first. I really liked the effect. I dug into some old stencils for some of the others.
For the butterfly, I stamped the wings on two separt pieces of paper that I had sprayed (one pink and one blue), when they were dry , I stamped the wings and cut them out.
I used a stencil for the green, and lightly misted the tag with pink. After is was dry I outlined the stencil with a back writer, and made the "quilt look" with my tracing wheel.
No matter how I photograph it,...you just cant see the effect of the glimmer mist like you can in real life. darn. It' s very "shimmery"
I went over the wings on some of these images with my SAKURA stardust pen.
I inked the edges with "Chestnut Roan" Colorbox ink
This tag and the bottom tag are both done using the new "Fairy" stamps from "Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage" I LOVE this set!
This little cutie is from the "Cherub" set
I just found out that Tattered Angels, the makers of Glimmer mist, now has a forum and a gallery. They also make a number of other products, I wasnt even aware of. If you want to check it out , "Tattered Angels " Gallery Forum
I'm busy working on prodjects that I can't share just yet, so I did these tags quick , so that I'd have somthing I could share today.) You know .. I need pictures! )lol The mist is so easy to use and really quick drying, so these came together fast.
