Hello again, Nicole here and I am back to share this woody tag I made to show off the Sizzix Evergreen die. I love to get the most out of my dies and think of different ways I can use them. I love to create layers and texture along the way.
I spritzed watercolor paper water then sprayed Ranger Distress Spray Stain peeled paint, lucky clover and twisted citron. I cut the greens from the tattered pinecone die and added a few forest moss Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock greens too. Then I glued them all to a piece of matboard then ran it through on the Evergreen die. Creating this 3D Tree.
I stamped the Kraft tag with using picket fence distress paint then inked the edges with ground espresso. With some scrap inked up watercolor paper I cut out “Moments” from the Handwritten Journey Thinlit. I used this Idea-Ology Flashcard trimmed and altered to create the sentiment. Something a little different.
Creating textures and layers is one of my favorite ways to create. Burlap is a great wait to add texture and colour. I cut the Kraft Tag using the Sizzix Mixed Media Thinlit then layered it over the burlap.
I love when what I makes comes right off the tag, card and canvas! Here there are so many layers allowing for lots of colours and textures. It’s a great way to look at your Sizzix dies in a different way and get the most out of your cuts, inks and embellishments.
