Tool tag

Hi everyone,

Today is a super cool date, May 5th (here in the Netherlands it's Liberation Day, and that means a day off). Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog has a very fitting challenge especially for this date: a challenge of 5. Use 5 products to make your project OR use five of the same products in your project.



This tag I made for my colleague who recently has had surgery. I have used 5 of my most favorite and frequently used tools. The first tool is the Blending Tool. I blended Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon to make ​​the background. This technique is one of my favorite ways to create backgrounds.



The second and third tool I used to give the background some more depth and interes and used them together. A stencil (Burlap) with the new Distress Spritzer. The spritzer gives such a cool and subtle effect.



The fourth tool is a Palette Knife. Dina's is amazing and not expensive at all. I used it with a different stencil(Number Jumble) and black colored Embossing Paste.



The final and absolute favorite is the stamp ! I can not live without stamps ! I have of course my all time favorite use Script Kaiser Craft. But the Retro Circles by Tim Holtz
