I started out quite confident with my tag, then I realized I had chosen
the wrong colors for the stenciling, way too dark. All I could come up
with was to cover the whole "mess" with word dies and a little sentiment
I want to show you how to create a little box with an older
technique called “Resist with napkin varnish”.
I started with cutting my template, it’s
a Sizzix Die *Box & Card* and stamped the two beautiful flowers from the Da Vinci Set. Make sure you use permanent
ink, as this is going to get wet!
I colored the images with Koh-I-Noor
pencils Mondulez and some water. Then I carefully applied the napkin varnish
and tried not to get too much outside the image, since this area will not take
any color after the application.
I applied different colors of Distress
Ink and spritzed & flicked with water. After distressing the edges I assembled
my box and tied a little tag around, the word “SEEDS” is computer generated.
I just love how vibrant the colors of
the flowers stand out!
