One of my best ever emails came from Tammy, about a year and a half ago, when she asked me if I wanted to join the first ever Sizzix (US) design team. I didn't even think one second before I said yes, and I love being on this great team. Tammy does a wonderful job running the team, she is always there to listen and takes such good care of all the design team members, and has created an environment where our creativity is free to roam around. Thank you so much Tammy!
The tag was die cut from watercolour paper and randomly stamped with the Darkroom Door Gazette background stamp using Archival Jet Black ink. It was embossed with the English Botanical folder and I did the wax crayon resist technique that I shared in this tutorial. After applying the crayon, the tag was inked with Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap Distress Stains. When dry, I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
Vintage dictionary paper from Bazzill was glued on top of grungeboard and the scroll was die cut from it. The edges were inked with Frayed Burlap. I also added a little nest made from cheesecloth which had been dyed with Antique Linen Distress Stain and a pen nib, slightly coloured with patina ink.
Don't forget to visit the blogs of the other design team members participating in the hop, for some great inspiration:
