Hi it's Cyndi back with you this week with another Dreamweaver Stencils Tutorial. Our challenge on the DWS blog
all through March is Spring/Easter. So this week DWS meets some Tim Holtz Distress on an Easter tag!
And here's a pic of the supplies that I used:
Next I poured on my Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powders, one color at a time so that I could mix it up across the design. After all of my colors were added I heated the powder with my Heat Tool.
Once I had the powder thoroughly heated I ran the cardstock through my Cuttlebug with 3 different sizes of the Nested Egg die from Spellbinders.
To make the eggs pop out I added Distress Ink lightly all over the background and heavier around the edges of each egg.
For my tag background I started with some Tim Holtz Tissue paper and adhered that to my tag with Multi Medium gel. After I heated that I added Distress Paint and Distress Stain, sprayed with water and then heat it again.
Here's a closeup of the eggs when they are layered together.
My eggs are nestled in a layer of grass cut with Martha Stewart scissors on Green Core'dinations cardstock. The sentiment at the bottom was stenciled through Season of Joy stencil using Distress ink and a dauber. (Who says you can't use a Christmas stencil at Easter? LOL)
And finally an extra element that I couldn't resist adding to the tag is this Butterfly from Tim Holtz's Easter Blueprints stamp set.
I hope you enjoy and I hope you'll join our challenge this month!
