SSSS- Show us a Flourish
I am scrambling to finish up the challenge on the Everything wendy Vecchi yahoogroup this week, which was simple; just use red, white, and blue, and at least one of Wendy's stamps, yet here it is the day before the deadline and I'm cramming. So I combined this challenge with the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge to use a flourish and voila! I used Ranger embossing ink with Wendy's background stamp that I thought would work for stripes on the lower portion of my tag and then used some Puffy White embossing powder i got at a convention years ago for a $1.00 for a whole baggie of it and have never used. Had to try it as I couldn't find my tupperware dish of regular white. Clean room of stash I keep. LOL Then used tim's stars and did thesame thing to the top. Distress stains over that, masking the two areas from eahc other with scrap paper and then a piece of tissue tape between. Wiped off with a soft cloth, note: regular powder does not wipe part way off like puffy does. LOL Still glad I tried it, it's kind of cool stuiff. By the way, I found my regular white now also. Go figure! Used my shrink plastic and stamloed and then colored with colored pencils the two Artyistic Outpost stamps. Die cut Tim's elegant flourished from blue, glued them down and the shrink poieces over tyhem and added the red ribbon.How's that for a quickie!
