Tuesday Tutorial: Favorite Tool: Vagabond
Then I sprayed a slight mist and drops of Espresso Adirondack Color Wash. Dry again.
Add a strip of Traveler Tissue Tape to one side. If you’re really reading this…you don’t have to dry here….that’s a joke.
A dash of heat from the Heat It Tool and you can curl the leaves as you like.
Sprinkled a few bits of Butterscotch Adirondack embossing powder. And heated it again.
Then I decided it needed better contrast, so I took the top off the Copper paint dabber and painted the word Thankful.
Now you wonder, why then should I go to all the trouble to add the Black Soot DI???
Because it has created the perfect shadow outline to the raised letters!!!!
I would like to tell you I planned it that way all alone, but it’s just a happy result of constant layering.
Since there’s a lot of metallic color and plastic, there is a lot of different colors that show up in different angles of shooting the photos.
I think the copper lettering and the gold paint on the leaves shows up best here.
Layer up your leaves, a Timepiece and brad with your spinner. Add some Copper paint dabber around the edge of the tag.
I like to add my tags to a piece of black chipboard for stability.
And a row of Gold nailheads from Mark Richards is at the bottom for one last section of Bling.
