A few weeks back we received the new Frozen Foil Transfer Sheets and the Frozen set of Stickles. I knew that I would have to play with these wonderful colors. They were my inspiration for Tag #7. I started with Wendy Vecchi's new Text background stamp and used it to stamp on of my favorite jumbo manila tags using Jet Black archival ink.
Once stamped, it was given a few shots of Brushed Pewter distress stains. Don't forget, when you use Tim's spray stains, you need to make sure you wipe any spray from the nozzle. There is a resin in the spray and it gums up the tiny spray hole if you leave it there to dry. When I went to use my Brushed Pewter, I couldn't get it to spray properly. I rinsed it under hot running water, but no luck. It only splattered out blobs. Fortunately I had a couple of brand new sprayers from Dyan Reavely. Her sprayers for the Dylusions sprays also fit Tim's distress sprays. If you don't keep a couple of these sprayers on hand, you are apt to be frustrated when your distress sprays suddenly won't spray!
Next, using the new Tim Holtz Snowflakes Layering Stencil, I applied Wendy Vecchi's Silver embossing paste. Once it was dry, I simply rubbed the Frozen Foil Transfers over the embossing paste.
Thanks so much to everyone for their comments and for the inspirational entries for the challenge. I can't wait to see what you all make!
