Gas Lamp Sign
It's time for the March new release from Die-Versions and there are some really fun dies!
Gas Lamp Sign and I've create a tag a la Tim Hotlz (sort of). Just about everything on this tag is from one of his lines. What I really like about this though is that the focal point is actually a piece of canvas that I colored with Distress Stains and then stamped a couple different Stampers Anonymous stamps onto it with Archival inks (coffee), making a sort of collage. Next I cut out the lamppost from grungeboard -yes DV dies do cut it out! I did run it back and forth through my machine a few times though. A couple of the corners in the lamp section didn't cut all the way through, but they were easily snipped with a pair of scissors. Just because there wasn't enough TH stuff on there :-P, I also added one of his File Tabs as well as Tiny Staples.
I painted the die cut with a metallic silver paint dauber and randomly sprinkled Sparkle N Sprinkle's Tiger Orange velvet glitter on it while it was still wet. I wanted it to look a little rusty. I added tissue tape ruffles on the bottom of the tag, which was colored with Dylusions Ink Sprays as well as creating a ribbon loop for the top of the tag.
You're definitely going to want to visit the Die-Versions blog to see what the rest of the team has created with some of the other new releases.
