Not too long ago, I admired this beautiful Hero Arts stamp that my sister-in-law had. She was sweet enough to give it to me, so I immediately made this tag with it.
It's hard to believe looking at this tag that I colored the background with Distress Inks in Broken China and Victorian Velvet since the pink color is pretty nonexistant. I simply inked my mat with the two colors, spritzed them with water, and pulled the tag through the colors. After heat drying it, I stamped the image with archival ink. Perfect Pearl Mist was sprayed onto the tag which gave it a metallic appearance. The Tim Holtz seam binding and ribbon flowers as well as a bit of ruffled ribbon was rolled around in the leftover ink mixture to give it the same color as the background. The ornate button and crown are also Tim Holtz. I added a couple of silver Recollections pearl to the centers of the ribbon flowers.
Now that I see the effect created here, I need to try it again to create a bit more color. It is all a learning process! The stamp is beautiful, but it is a bit difficult to see here from all the shine.
Since the holidays are fast approaching, I really need to get working on some Christmas projects. Hopefully, next week, I'll be able to share something for the holidays! Have a fantastic week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
