Shopping Our Stash: What's in your tool shed?


Hello!  This week at  Shopping Our Stash we are asking you to dig out a tool you either haven't used ever or in a long time and use it!  I used a border embossing folder that has sat neglected for sometime in my stash.  I used it on a tag, then spritzed with Dylusions ink and used Distress Inks over it.

The image is from Wonderstrange- I used Distress markers and spica glitter pens on it.  I added some background interest with VLV stamp and more distress ink, and then stamped the sentiment in Archival ink, added the butterflies, some twine and called it done.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will look thru your tools and use one that has been neglected, then link up with us!

Hmmmm...good idea. I know I have several embossing folders that have never been used...and I especially forget to look at my collection of embossing borders!

A fab tag, Miss Carla!

So much awesome! I love the amazing texture adding the mists & ink gave it - adds so much depth to the embossing. And that image is sweet!
