Gift Tag Challenge in the Moxie Fab World
I was playing around with some Mister Huey’s Masks (V-pattern and Chevron) and some Mr. Huey’s and Dylusions ink sprays on Craft cardstock. I decided to make some tags out of the created cardstock that I ended up with; I’m submitting them over at Gift Tag Challenge in the Moxie Fab World http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2013/05/350-cards-gifts-week-gift-tag-challenge.html
I ended up with three tags; this is my favorite.
First I used the V-pattern mask and sprayed here and there with Dylusions Bubblegum and Mr. Huey’s Cash Money and Bazinga; toward the end I used the chevron mask and added some London blue chevrons here and there; then I used Crafters workshop Mini Circle Grid and filled in the circles with Cotton Candy (the blue color) Gelato (I filled it in and then blended it a little with a paper towel); I did this here and there on the cardstock; then I did the same thing with a lines stencil I have by Darcie Hunter (?-it’s a very old stencil!) and a Gauva (the pink color) Gelato.
I put the chevron mask over the stenciled circles and lines and sprayed with Dylusions Bubblegum and the gelato colors just rose to the surface and stood out like you see; it’s like all of a sudden they’re this bright colored blue, just sort of floating on the surface, and I also like that you can see the chevron pattern like an x-ray through it. The same thing happened when I used the Gauva line stencil and covered it with the chevron mask and Bubblegum; although to a lesser extent.
The asterisk stamp is from studio g; I just stamped it on a piece of Studio Calico paper (an orange paper withverylight yellow grid lines and dots) that I had lightly sprayed over with the v-pattern mask and bubblegum. I cut it out, and glued it over one of the blue circles. The rhinestone in the middle of the asterisk was crystal and I wanted it toned down some; actually I wanted an orange rhinestone, but couldn’t find it anywhere; so I painted over the rhinestone with Tim Holtz Antiqued Bronze Distress Paint and I think it came out looking kind of cool, sort of like an antique orange rhinestone. I added the “Bazinga” with Upper Collage Set (again, on the orange paper and cut it out)and the “I love you” from Amour, Amour by Scrappy Cats; the rest of the sentiments are Reverse Confetti. I added little wood veneer chevrons for accent.
