Creative Chemistry Day 3

This was part of the Day 3 class. The technique is ARCHIVAL RESIST done on glossy paper.

I did lightly wipe some of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink off, with a slightly damp towel as I had stamped the chicken wire with Mustard Archival and wanted it to show more.
Rather than mount it to a black tag, I covered my tag with a vintage dress pattern paper. I added vintage seam binding, and seamstress pins and vintage buttons to finish it off.
Nobody likes a nekid tag!

I just love the dress form line!!!

This is done using the 'Reflection Stamping' technique. I didn't use a reflection stamp. I'm to hung up on the Mixed Media set!
I also used colored ARCHIVAL for the butterflies, and afterwards, used library green to stamp the vine-age on the top. I also cut and embossed the butterfly from the new Tim chocolate bunny BIGZ die set. This gave added depth I wanted the tag to have. The scrap at the bottom is from the Lace Border Decorative strip die. Love those! I also sanded off the raised, embossed area to make the detail of the shape pop. Guess I am, once again not following all the rules. I also oversprayed the tag with Biscotti Perfect Mist....
