Sunday Stampers Challenge Week 7


Thank you Hels for setting another great Sunday Stampers Challenge. This week the theme is Oriental. Same rules as usual, inky, stamping and whatever media you would like to use; cards, ATCs, Tags, whatever you want to make".


Well I had so much fun making this tag. I used a red 6" x 3" tag and then made a slightly smaller tag in black. I used an oriental background stamp to stamp on the black card with a versamark ink pad and then I put on gold embossing powder and heated it. I stamped a very large oriental lady in stazon onto a piece of white shrink plastic and coloured it using sakura glitter gel pens, painted on with a waterbrush, to get a very soft finish. I then punched a hole in the shrink plastic before heating it to shrink it. The main image I stamped onto a piece of white card using versamark and again used gold embossing powder. I coloured the image using the sakura glitter pens and waterbrush. I then gently rubbed over the image and the white card with some distress inks, to give it a slightly aged look. I decided to have a go at triple embossing, so I inked the distressed piece of card with versamark ink and dipped it in to some UTEE and then heated with the heat tool and then repeated again twice. I matted this on to black card and then gold card and mounted it onto the tag. I attached the shrink plastic piece with a little piece of red and gold thread to the bottom of the main image - so the shrink plastic piece "swings".
