Goodness this weekend just got away from me! I wanted to participate in Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire event but only got one project done!
I started by cutting tags from my Tags Galore file. I stamped them with Papertrey Ink's Fancy Flourishes stamp set. (Haven't used this stamp in a long time..forgot how wonderful it is!). Then embossed with white embossing powder.
I just loved Betsy's video on staining using Kool-aide. I bought a value pack of generic Kool Aide that had 4 flavors included and the colors I got were just plain horrible! I ended up with two reds that worked okay but the yellow didn't dye at all and the grape was more grey in color. I was deeply disappointed! I love Betsy's colors so I think I will buy what she did and try again in the future. So....
I had some tea and got that out to tea stain the tags. This worked quite well. The watercolor paper I cut the tags out of didn't warp at all. It's hard to tell in the photo but I also stained some tulle. I layered this with my flowers (QK die). If you click on the photo you might be able to see the tulle better.
I stamped the white card base with a script stamp from Hero Arts. I think if I duplicate this card I will tea stain the base or use a less stark white. I really love the tea stain color with a touch of soft pink as an accent color. So I used PTI's sweet blush cardstock to cut my flowers and border. The border is from my Card Base 1 file. A little bit of gold accented fiber finished the card.
