Creative Chemistry 103 - Day 4 Tags Part 2

So here is the "forgotten" tag technique for Day 4.  I literally spent hours on this coloring and recoloring.  It's amazing how "forgiving" Distress Crayons are.  I still have so much to learn about them.  But here is my technique tag for Distress Crayon Layered Coloring Technique.

I'm adding a few detail photos on this technique.  Although I still have a lot to learn about this technique, I found out so much by just playing!  I started by taking the time to do some masking as a part of my stamped collage here.  

I also did some sanding around the edge of the tag to make it add an additional vintage touch.  And check out the crazing crackle around the sentiment!

Layering ... Layering ... Layering

Creating this "window" effect to the stamped background ... I can't wait to try this again on other projects!

 Ok ... So now Day 4 is complete :)

Hugs to you all!  Mary Elizabeth

OOOOOH, vintage loveliness! I love the design on this, but that sanded edge and the crazing take this over the top! Pinned! Big hugs!
