Hello, Dear Friend!

Hello Everyone!
There is a new challenge appeared recently dedicated to CAS tag projects - Tag You're It! For the challenge #2 Laura Bassen as a Guest Designer presented her inspirational tag:



I followed her colour scheme with some variations and kept the major elements - embossing resist technique in clear powder, a die-cut shape and a sentiment in black.



I started with heat embossing stripes in clear to a white tag and then I tried different techniques for colouring the background. I found that sponging Distress Inks brought more vibrant tones, than water-colouring techniques, what I personally enjoy more.



Usually I use a lot of heat embossing in my projects, that's why I really appreciate Craft Stamper's July challenge focusing on embossing resist technique.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!
