Just messin' around in the scrap room...

Hiya!  Lindsey here and I've been busy playing with embossing powders, Distress Stains, Tim Holtz Ideology products and stamps.

Distress Stains are one of my new favorite inky goodies.  I love how it not only works on paper, but it also does wonders on wood!!  :)  So now you can alter wood ornaments, tags, and other decorative items easily.  And the best thing is that you have 37 colors to choose from, including an awesome white AND don't forget that there are also Distress Inks, Stickles, and markers that match!

These tags are found in the back of the store and are very good for gifts, magnets, ornaments, or even bookmarks.  The first tag is based with Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage Distress Stain and allowed to dry.  Then, using the Wood stamp from stamp set CMS126, I embossed the image onto the tag using brown embossing powder.

Taking pieces of the foliage, I embossed them with various embossing powders (white, purple, green, and orange) and allowed them to cool.  The green powder was Metalline Green from WOW! and is one of my new favorite embossing powders.  Using an ornate plate and an adage tag, I assembled the title and adhered it to the tag using Matte Medium.  Then, I adhered the foliage to the tag with the Matte Medium.

This tag was finished off using softer twine, which is one of my new favorite, go-to embellishments.   I love this stuff!!  :)

Stay tuned to the blog for another sample later in the week!!  :)
