Simon Says Stamp and Show - Numbers


Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend. I'm just scraping in on the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which this week is numbers. I've made some tags which are all embossed using the TH Patchwork folder and this has lots of numbers in various forms to emboss each of the tags which were placed in slightly different parts of the folder for each emboss. Cosmic Shimmer mist was sprayed over all the tags then I went over the raised areas with black distress ink and some acrylic paint here and there. Around the edges I smoothed on some Iron Filings Viva Decor paste and added some BasicGrey Boxer fibres, bronze half pearls, a TH die cut sparkle powder embossed swirl, charms and a nail head brad which were re-coloured with alcohol ink.  They're all the same colour scheme except the tag top left is catching the light more and showing up the sheen from the Cosmic shimmer, I love this colour combo of Midnight Blue and Bronze Blush. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

What fantabulous texture you've achieved on your tags Chris and I think the gorgeous colours emphasize it. Stunning work as always.
