I was going to the annual Craft and Hobby Show (CHA) in Anaheim, California. I knew Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi would be there so I wanted to make a Tag for them. I know they LOVE the play Wicked so I googled the Wicked Poster to get a sense of the background colors.
I started with a basic Manila Tag. I put some Distress Stains – Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Black Soot – onto a Craft Sheet and spritzed them with water. I touched the tag to the ink and dried it with a heat tool. I repeated the process until I achieved the background I was looking for. Then, I spritzed some drops of water onto the tag and dried it with a heat tool.
I used the Tim Holtz Dots Layering Stencil and Broken China Distress Ink which I applied with a Blending Tool. The edges were sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool. I stenciled the word "Wicked" onto the tag with a Sponge Dauber(#102892) and White Craft Ink (#101731).
The Witch was originally created by Patty Bennett for Halloween. She is created with punches and framelits. Her face is a Large Oval Punch (#199855) in Old Olive Cardstock (#100702). Her arms are taken from a portion of a Dress-Up Framelit (#130101) in Old Olive Cardstock. Her dress is made from 3 Dress-Up Framelits that are cut from Basic Black Cardstock (#121045) and run through the Big Shot (#113439) in the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#130917). Her hat is half of a Floral Frames Framelit (#127012) and a Triangle Punch (Petite Pennants Punch #122361) that were embossed as well. Her shoes were just hand cut little triangles from Red Glimmer Paper (#121790). Her lips were hand drawn using a Real Red Marker (#100052).
The Ribbon (See first photo) was spritzed with water and dragged through the same Distress Inks and then crumpled and dried with a Heat Tool (#129053). I finished off the top corner of the tag with a metal Idea-ology Corner. Have you subscribed to my YouTube Channel?
