SSSS- Show Us some torn edges
http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com/2011/06/simon-says-stamp-and-show-your.html blog, the challenge was to Show Us Some Torn Edges and I had so much fun doing Linda's challenge over at Studio L3, that I made another tag using Tim's faux batik for this one as well. My windmill kind of got lost though as the stamp just was not a good choice for thias technique but I loved the coloring of it, so I stmaped the postage stamp on a scrap and tore around it and did the technique again on that and got my torn edges incorporated as well. I used weathered wood for the batik stamping , the i blended brushed corduroy, stormy sky, and vintage photo and a bit of walnut stain. After I melted the weathered wood, I overstamped with Coffee archival and black Archival inks. Used my distressing tool to tear the edges and then walnut stain followed by black soot blended over that. Pop-dotted the postmark batik piece on top, which I used antique linen for the batik part. Used my distress stains to dye the seam binding I tied on the top.
