She had ridden out storms

I spent some time working on this tag this Thursday morning:

Note the burnt ends.

Note the floral pattern on her dress.

Note the twinkle-toes...

  • Ranger tag coated with Teresa Collins modeling paste through Tim Holtz's Stripes stencil
  • When dry, tag sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in Ethereal Emerald
  • Old Basic Grey patterned paper cut to fit then edged with Walnut Stain Distress Paint
  • Recollections brads painted with Walnut Stain Distress Paint and affixed
  • Pine branch dies by Tim Holtz/Sizzix cut from kraft and Core-dinations metallic kraft-core.
  • Deer charm (with loop cut off) added with a hot-glue gun.  The charm came last winter in a goodie bag from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
  • The lady is from Tim's Paper Dolls.  I inked her with Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Mushroom but rubbed it off of her face and shoes-- didn't want spots there.  What was cool, though, was how the speckled alcohol ink brought out the floral pattern of her skirt!
  • Stickles added to her toes... and somehow this improves the entire project.
  • Old seam binding cut and I was wondering if it was a poly-blend, so I tried to burn it to abate fraying, but this was apparently 100% cotton, so I just burnt the edges.  Will have to remember this as it left a cool dark edge.
  • The quote was snipped from an old book and adhered with Distress Collage Mediums in both Matte and Vintage.
I'd love to share thus with the following challenges:
