Over at Fashionable Stamping this fortnight our theme is Birds and Bees. Although I know birds are a very popular theme for crafting projects and love the many beautiful creations I see around blogland, it's one I've never really got into. So I've gone the bees route - making another tag for my Creative Chemistry Album (which I am VERY SLOWLY working on to include all of the techniques from Tim Holtz's CC workshops).
This technique is Distress embossing powder resist using Walnut stain distress powder to emboss this background stamp from Artistic Stamper before inking over with distress inks and stains.
Once I'd created the background using the basic technique I added stamped and embossed flowers, my fav TH die cut and of course the bees and their hive. The flower stamps are Indigo Blu, the bee hive and sentiment are Stamp addicts and the bees are from Crafty Individuals.
I make two tags using each technique for my CC album, leaving one unadorned and using the other for a completed project.
I'm sharing my tag here -
