Hi folks, it's Friday again, that means it's time to rummage through your stash again to find some neglected items and make something with them.
This week, I've been making tags using a tutorial based on a post I found here using Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. I had an unopened pot of this that had been knocking around for ages, so I thought that it was a perfect Forgotten Friday project. I dug out some neglected Christmas embossing folders, and had a go.
I found that the Tim Holtz folders are much better for this project, as they are deeper etched than Cuttlebug embossing folders, for example. However, I could try using my 'Texture Boutique' embossing machine another time, which is meant to emboss much deeper than a regular die cutting machine. It just gathers dust as I don't normally get it out for embossing these days. Here are a couple of sample tags one TH, and one Cuttlebug:
This is a fun technique to do, and makes a very pretty background. I finished the blue tag off, and will finish the red and green tag another day.
