Wings

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!

 

This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is ” We Clearly See It! ” — so grab your acetate sheet, your vellum, your plastic…anything that is transparent and play along with us!
I made a mixed media TAG and I used acetate sheet to create wings for my stacked hearts!

I took a Manila Tag and covered it with old book pages, Tim Holtz Postale Tissue Wrap and pieces of Washi Tape.

I covered it with a bit of gesso and let it dry. I took a Distress Ink Pad and I smudged it over my Kraft Sheet, added water and let the color soak into my Tag. I let it dry again then with Distress Markers I added some shadows around the sides.

I grabbed a piece of Manila paper and I covered it again with old book pages, tissue wrap and washi tape.
I run the piece of paper through my die cutting machine and I used a sizzix die to cut my three hearts. I added gesso and again with distress markers I added a bit of color. With a black gel pen I added some scribbles around the hearts just to give a bit of interest. My goal for this TAG was not to use stamps — so I had to add interest with scribbles.
I stitched the three hearts together.
I took a piece of acetate sheet and I run it through my die cutting machine and a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die and I cut my wings. I  added color to the wings with Alcohol Inks and let it dry. Glued the pieces together and stacked under the hearts.

Before glueing the hearts to the tag, I decided to darkened up the edges of the tag and add some stitches around the border, again to give it a bit of interest and a finished look.

I glued down my center piece and then I adhered stickers by Tim Holtz to create my sentiment.

Eccoci come ogni lunedi con una nuova sfida su Simon Says Stamp!

 

Il tema di questa settimana su Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange è ” We Clearly See It! ” — ovvero “lo vediamo benissimo”, un piccolo gioco di parole che significa semplicemente di prendere i vostri fogli di acetato, vellum, plastica…qualsiasi cosa purchè sia un minimo trasparente!
Io ho creato questa mixed media TAG e ho usato un foglio di acetato per creare le ali alla mia serie di cuori!
Mixed-Media-Tag_Zoey_SimonSaysStamp_1

Ho preso una tag Manila e l’ho ricoperta con pezzi di vecchi libri, Tissue Wrap paper di Tim Holtz e  Washi Tape.

L’ho coperta con un poco di gesso e ho lasciato asciugare. Ho preso un distress ink e l’ho schiacciato sopra al Kraft Sheet, ho aggiunto acqua e ho lasciato che il colore impregnasse la mia tag. Ho lasciato nuovamente asciugare e poi con i distress markers ho aggiunto ombre e colori alla tag.

Ho preso un foglio di Manila paper e ho coperto nuovamente la superficie usando vecchi libri, tissue wrap paper, washi tape. Ho aggiunto altro gesso e con i distress marker ho di nuovo creato colore. Ho tagliato i cuori usando una fustella Sizzix e ho aggiunto delle linee intorno ai cuori usando una penna gel. Siccome non ho voluto usare alcun timbro ho dovuto aggiungere interesse alle forme con la penna gel.

Ho cucito i tre cuori insieme.

Ho preso un pezzo di acetato e l’ho passato attraverso la Big Shot usando una fustella di Tim Holtz e ho tagliato le ali.
Per colorare l’acetato ho usato alcuno Alcohol Inks. Ho incollato i pezzi di acetato insieme e poi ho incollato il tutto tra i cuori.

Prima di incollare i cuori alla tag, ho deciso di scurire i bordi della Tag e aggiungere delle cuciture intorno ai bordi, nuovamente cercando di aggiungere interesse e dare alla tag un look finito.

Ho incollato i cuori e poi ho usato degli stickers di Tim Holtz per creare il sentiment della Tag.
