GM #4 Textured Fades and Distress


Well another week has almost gone by and we are in week 4 of the Grungy Monday challenges over at StudioL3. This week Linda has challenged us to use Tim's Textured fades and distressing. Here's a tag I did . I inked the tag first with various colors of DI then embossed it with the Textured Fade Cracked, then sponged over the raised areas with DI . The Umbella man was stamped and cut out (since I don't have the new die yet) and then poped up for a #D effect. The flower was made with Tim's tattered floral die and misted with homemade glimmer mist (peeled paint,shabby shutters,forever green perfect pearls and water). I love how it turned out.

I'm also entering this in SSS and Show some Tim's Techniques

Hi Marilyn! Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. I didn't know of an email address to reach you...so I'm posting here. :) I'm so glad that you're enjoying the techniques and "behind the scenes" of Ranger U! It was an amazing experience! <3 Candy

Another great tag. Umbrella man looks like he's actually stamped on with his umbrella raised.

Hi again Marilyn! You will LOVE the embossing powder technique. Those embossing powders are so vibrant and this technique was made for them! Thanks for posting on my blog. So glad you enjoyed the Ranger U stories and the techniques! <3 Candy
