I really like the subtlety of the entire thing. It's so girly.
The ribbon is a vintage strap. I can picture it being on this dress. I stuck pretty close to how Tim completed his tag. I stamped my first generation on a tag and then used the second generation for the final result. I added distress marker to my craft sheet and used the watercolor pen to add highlights to the dress.
I don't have a spritzer so I used a mini mister that I filled with a couple drops of alcohol ink and water to mist some faded dots to the top and the bottom of the tag. A little washi tape completed the basic tag.
I smudged the entire tag with pumice stone to finish.
Elegant and gorgeous.
Want to know what I did with the ones I passed over?
I gessoed over the entire thing. The images from the sewing themed tag I tried still peeked through but I liked the effect. I rubbed distress stain in Squeezed Lemonade over the entire surface. I then layered with a crack pattern stencil to add dimension. I cut flowers out of cardstock using the Tattered Florals die. I put Pickled Raspberry, Broken China, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain on the craft sheet and spritzed with water. I ran the largest and the second smallest through the stain once. I dried them and ran them through again. I then sprayed them with Perfect Pearls and crumpled them. I dried again and used Scattered Straw Distress Ink to highlight the wrinkles. The blue flowers are a mixture of Broken China and Peacock Fathers Distress Ink. I put the flowers together using brads with a pearl center. I used the negative from the die cut to make embossing paste (colored with Alcohol Ink)flowers. I put a tiny bit of translucent glitter on them before they dried. I used Pickled Raspberry Ink on the edges. The tiny text was colored with the blue that was on the ink dauber. I attached it to the tag using the tiny attacher.
They are having a pearl challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog that I will enter this tag into. It also works for the Frilly and Funkie stencils and texture challenge. Over at the Artful Times they are having an Anything Goes challenge. This is anything, so I will add it onto that challenge too!
Remember I said I tried a couple different tags before I settled on the dress tag. I will be back later in the week to show you what I did with the other one I passed over.
