Love & Cherish

I've finally completed the Creative Chemistry course and I must say I found it both informative and great fun.  Today I am showcasing the Rock Candy Distress Stickles Technique. All the products I have used are available from The Stamp Attic.
The background of my tag has been coloured with Distress Ink old paper and I then stamped the Wallpaper background stamp with faded jeans and walnut stain ink, adding Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy over the top.
I added two strips of card coloured with walnut stain ink to break up my background a little and spritzed with water adding Chitchat stickers Love & Cherish.
I have cut three hearts from card using the Mini Hearts die and embossed with a Texture Fade, colouring with Distress Inks and again adding Clear Rock Candy to coordinate with my background. For added dimension I have added the bird from the Adornments Charms, colouring with Alcohol Ink.
For further interest I have added two Gem Clips to my tag along with coordinated ribbon.
A little close up shot to show you the amazing detail of the background stamp, embossing and the Clear Rock Candy.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
