Dream Tag

This week's Simon Says Stamp and Show is Show a Tim Holtz Technique. I first made the flower by gluing some tissue wrap to grunge paper and then die cutting. I coloured with Alcohol Inks since tissue wrap has a slightly "waxy" finish it takes water based inks only very lightly. I applied some Distress Stickles on account of I made this on Monday when the latest Extreme Stickling episode came out.

The tag was made by spraying a Kraft tag with Ink Refreshers and then crumpling. Background was coloured with Distress Stains, then highlighting Brushed Cordoroy Distress ink and some Perfect Pearls. Stamped image using Olive Archival Ink


  1. I LOVE the flower...very pretty & thank you for sharing the chemistry behind it. I have yet to open a tissue box because I wasn't sure about the surface. So TFS & also I had no idea there was a show & tell. This is fab...

  2. This is lovely ... that background looks fabulous! Thank you for joining the team at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week ... we hope to see you again soon!

  3. Such a pretty flower! I love the colours you used and all that shimmer!
