It's Grungy Monday and since OWSE sponsored Studio L3 last week I have to pick a winner of their challenge. well what I'm going to do is put all the names in a hat and have DH (DUH HUBBY) pick one.. I want to see all the entries. These people are so talented it put's me to shame!! but I try.
This week we are doing Distress and Texture Fades. I only have two texture fades but I have loads of cuddlebug embossing plates so I chose one of them and ran it through my Vagabond machine. there is a difference when you run it through the Vagabond machine versus the cuttlebug. It's much more texurized.. When I'm lazy I use the cuddlebug but lately it's all Vagabond!!
Here is the tag I did. I'm trying to practice "Less is More" and not over embellish and do a million flowers.. It's hard!! I always think my creation is not finished. well anywho see the stamping upside down. Cool huh. It wasn't by accident. Okay yes it was but if you read it it says "A dream is a wish your heart makes". right.. well mine are kind of upside down right now so I left the sentiment upside down and didn't start over!! ROFL
I put ink on my texture plate and ran it through the vagabond.. I love love this technique!! I distressed the sides of my tag with distress embossing powder.. Stamped my bird with many colors of pigment ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. ran some twine around and voila!! My new Tag!! I'm entering over at Linda's Studio L3 - Grungy Monday.. .. now for something real important I have wanted to do today, A well deserved Nap!!
