Creating Rusty backgrounds using distress products

Image
Hi friends! I am so excited about the new idea-ology product that Tim is releasing this year that I decided to sit down and create!  My favorite line of his is by far the idea-ology. Now Don't get me wrong, I couldn't create this rusty grunge without his distress line, but I love how the idea-ology brings it to life. 

This week's Monday challenge over at SSS is home decor. I don't typically enter challenges, but I decided to enter my projects this week.  


I created two process videos showing how this was put together. The first video focuses on creating a Rust background that you see on the voltage die. 



 The second video is how I used that die as my focal piece on my tags.  These tags are the ectetera tags from Tim Holtz and make great decor pieces. 

I created two voltage plates, so I was able to actually create two finished projects. I have them both hanging on my wall in my studio!

STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday - Keep Cozy

Image
Hi everyone! I am back sharing another easy design for the Stencil Sunday series over at STAMPlorations. This time I am using the Stencil called Crisscrossed.  


I used distress oxide vintage photo and a blending tool and softly brushed the ink through the stencil. I put more pressure on some areas than others so that it was not a constant design.


I used the stamp set called Snow Cozy to stamp the coffee cups onto circles that I punched out.  I colored the cups using Copic Markers and edged the circles using the distress oxide vintage photo.


I used the same stamp set to stamp the sentiments.  I added two pockets and punched a half circle in each to create pockets for my Circles. the thumb notched ensured that my images would show when they were in their "cozy" pockets.
