Summer of Creative Chemistry - Week 2 Challenge

The 2nd week challenge was to use Distress Stains. My tag incorporates the marbled stains technique, along with vellum.

Marbled background used the colors Milled Lavender, Dried Marigold, Tarnished Brass, and Picket Fence.

I used some of the Tim Holtz vellum, by coating the back of the vellum with Picket Fence as well. Other colors of Distress Stains will also show through the vellum and change up the color slightly. The Picket Fence on the preprinted vellum just makes the colors already printed on it look brighter.

I tore and crumpled the vellum, gluing to bottom of tag with Claudine Helmuth Studio Extra Time Slow Dry Medium. I also cut out a piece of crumpled vellum with an oval die cut, using the smaller size die cut with regular white cardstock for stamping the butterfly, edged with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.

I added two sizes of diamond pattern stamps from Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous in Milled Lavender and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink to the background to add extra interest.

The ribbon is a Martha Stewart self-stick ribbon from Michael's stores.

Thanks for checking out my tag.
