Today I have a tag for you, A great image of my favourite comic book hero, I have been reading the Captain America comics for the last 20 odd years and when I saw this image over at the Octopode Factory I new I had to have it and as I have been on a copic's mission the last few weeks it was a no brainer.The image was printed on to craft card stock and then coloured with copic's and fussy cut, finally I clear embossed the image twice.
The tag was cut using my Tim Holtz tag die and cut from mount board, I am using this for all my ATC's and Tags as it is a much nicer surface to work on, no warping or creasing. I swiped the tag with broken china distress stain and then a light swipe with the picket fence stain to give a washed out look, I then gave it a quick spritz with water to get the mottled texture.
I then stamped in Archival blue ink the faux stitching and then added the snow flakes stamping with white, its a very delicate stamp but with the back ground it gives a sort of blizzard look (there are a few snow flake challenges this week ;) )
I would also like to share another copics colours ATC, its another Delicious Doodles image, this one is called Ivy Queen and has been designed by Terri, One of the Haunted Design House DT minions I have the pleasure of working with.
The image has been sized and coloured and glued to a mount board atc blank cut from my Tim Holtz die, it was then given two coats of clear embossing powder.
I would like to enter the Captain America tag into a couple of challenges.
Over at the Octopode Factory they are having a Snow time challenge.
Over at Simon Says Stamp And Show their theme is Embrace The Old, the back ground has been made with my old faves the distress inks and I have used and old favourite technique spritz n flick.
Incy Wincy Designs are having a Something new challenge, The Octopode image and Tim Holtz chain clip are new.
Lexis Creations have an Anything Goes challenge at the mo.
Love To Create are having a Winter Wonderland challenge.
I would like to enter the ATC into the challenge over at Delicious Doodles the challenge there is Sparkle and Shine, Hopefully the clear embossing counts to the shine side of the challenge.
I would like to enter both images into the challenge over at Digi Galore both are new images for me. Not sure if I can enter them both, if not the I would like to enter the tag. x
I would like to enter the Cap tag into a new group I joined called Outlawz Challenges their Tuesday challenge is a colour challenge,at least 2 blues and white.
