Are You Prepared???

As if an earthquake wasn't bad enough, now we here on the East Coast are bracing for appears to be a very bad hurricane! I am preparing by making a couple tags today to share with you. Both tags use a new product called Goosebumps by Tsukineko. It's a texture spray. On these tags, I sprayed Goosebumps, dried with a heat gun, then distressed with ink. Then I sprayed again, dried and used a different color ink. Then embellished. The Goosebumps acts as a resist so you get a textured mottled spotty kind of look. Very nice. I found it at Michaels which shocked me that they even had it but I know it's available online a lot of places. The faith tag has a large flower I made, a smaller prima flower, a few vintage religious articles and the Faith bingo card. If you're a catholic, you'll get the tongue in cheek innuendo there! The other card of course is Halloween using Tim and Martha dies, stamps and paper. All the inks used were Tim Holtz Distressed inks on both tags. Be sure to click to see the pics larger and hopefully maybe you can catch the texture effect. Stay safe and dry!!!
