Feature Friday - Love Makes the Go Round

Happy Friday My Sweet Bloggie Friends!!  Norma here to wrap up this wonderfully creative week!



This week we've showcased the versatility of the beautiful Earth and Sky Cling stamp set.  Tara kicked things off for us on Monday with this beautiful little gift tag that is sure to make it's recipient feel special:



Then Dana showed us how to use this set to create a gorgeous layout:


and I've used the Earth and Sky Cling stamp set to create this interesting tag:

To create this tag, I started out by stamping the earth and clouds with my Metallic Pearl Dabber.  Next I sprayed the tag with Dylusions London Blue and Vibrant Turquoise.  The acrylic dabber resists the ink and stands out nicely against the beautiful Dylusions inks.


While my ink was still damp, I applied some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink making sure to blend the color into the blues for aged look.

Next I stamped the earth and colored it in with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I also inked all of the edges with Vintage Photo.  I stamped my sentiment on a scrap of muslin fraying and inking the edges to keep with the worn look I was going for.


For interest I layered in scraps of muslin, cardboard and tape backing (all were scraps on my desk).


To soften things up a bit I mixed in some glass beaded trim, a Prima flower and Tim Holtz heart charm.



There you have it, one stamp set, three very different ways to use it.   So whatever your style, you're sure to create something beautiful with this unique stamp set.

Thank you so much for joining me today and have a wonderful weekend!!
