Pickle Layout

This page is for Authentique's sketch challenge. I didn't have 12x12 Authentique paper that would match these pictures. I used Glowing to use for the border that I colored with Lime Colorbox ink. The pictures are framed with paper from Gathering that was inked with Lime Colorbox ink. Everything was sprayed with different smooch sprays. Here is a close up of the title. The accents are twine that I made into circles. The twine was dyed with reinker and water. I will have a tutorial in the future on how to do this.

Here you can see the white netting and white satin binding colored with the same ink. All ribbon and netting is from Ribbon

Joy Tag 1

Ok, I am trying something new with photos. This photo was scanned then edited in photoshop. Not sure about the picture but it definitely shows the texture. I took a tag and rubbed evergreen distress ink (not sure exact name) on it than embossed with timber folder that had versamark. I then added white embossing powder to help the embossing stand out. The word joy was cut using a retired Stampin Up Big shot die than dipped in versamark and heat embossed. The flower is five petal punch. The mushroom brown bag was sanded after embossing to show the kraft. The base is Pool Treasures. This was inspired by Tim Holtz's tag day 1. This was also for Inspired by challenge. I went with the word Joy in the photo.
