Hi Everyone: I'm still in my creative mode. This time I was inspired by a picture on Pinterest. I'm pretty sure most of us have a Pinterest account. I originally used mine to post my challenge projects. Since then it's become a source of inspiration. I'm constantly looking for color pairings, Interesting pictures of objects with textures (doors,windows,gates), and of course any pin by The (goes in front of each name)-Jan, Anita, Paula, Richele, Emma, Gabrielle, and of course Mr. Holtz. I keep adding to these names every day. Last week I ran across a picture of rust/lichen the colors are amazing in this picture. Seriously when I looked at it I pictured Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio & Seedless Preserves. So I took this color palette and started inking. The texture in the picture is varied; there is eroded, smooth, bumpy, shiny. When I created my version of this picture I used Verdigris embossing powder, Vintage Photo Distress powder, and Glossy Accents. For this challenge @ Linda Ledbetters CC3C requires a Dimensional Cutting Pad by Sizzix. I used it to cut the butterfly and then used to cut a mini flourish. Then I used the Tim Holtz rust technique on the flourish with the vintage photo stain and Distress powder. I of course had to use my now favorite Tim Holtz Flourish stencil with the Ditress embossing ink and then the Verdigris embossing powder (Ranger). to complete my tag I used an industrial frame, word band, and pearl and altered the color with Teakwood Alcohol Ink. All these items can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique (www.funkiejunkie.com). I hope you like it. . As per requested I'm putting a picture of the products I used.
