Hi everyone, hope you're all set for Valentine's Day tomorrow. We are off to see our girl later today and enjoy the weekend with her, can't wait!
My tag features the Rock Candy Distress Glitter technique which you'll find on pg. 55 of Tim's CC3 book. There's still time to play along and you can order an autographed copy by Tim here.
The technique was super easy and fun to do and I've got a few close ups to share.
I used a face stamp from the Nature Walk set by Tim for my technique. Unsure of who she is? She's the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland. I tucked one of Tim's playing cards, which I cut in half because I like the back as much as the front, in her crown and added roses (red of course) with a band of Kaisercraft pearls. Love her sparkly face!
Tim's Idea-ology keyhole was used because of its heart shape. Industrial stickers and remnant rub ons were used and I altered my crinkled ribbon with black soot, brushed pewter and pumice stone distress stain. Basically I dabbed it all over with the 3 colors, wadded it up and dried with a heat tool. Silver cording from my stash was used for the bow.
So back to the question posed in my blog title, has someone been painting the Red Queen's roses. Looks like they may have been caught and didn't finish what they started.
A text stamp, also from the Nature Walk set, was randomly stamped on my tag. If you look at the photo above you'll see an angels wing which is part of a collage stamp from Tim's Stamper's Anonymous Classics #9 set in the background. I stamped various wings from the collage all over my tag. See the set of wings peeking above the border on the right side (next to the washi tape). With the Red Queen running around you need an angel or two on your side. :) The heart stick pins have been in my stash for quite a while and I tucked them in beside
my the partially painted roses.
As always I can't share my technique out of respect for Tim but I do hope that you liked my tag. After a frustrating start, it was my third attempt, I finally decided to go with something that would amuse me. Once I began building the background with Tim's heart stencil I knew where I was headed-back to Wonderland. Yes, I refuse to grow up lol!
