I posted this picture on Facebook a couple weeks ago. This is my husband cutting 1200 grungeboard letters with the Vagabond machine. He had a whole system worked out that included his portable garage work table, a bin of pre-painted grungeboard, and a golf match on the TV. Gotta love him...he made it through, then moved on to 275 leaves and another 275 postage stamp frames. He is a keeper.
Lets get started making an easy card today. I couldn't decide what colors, so I made two #8 colored tags using Distress Stain and water technique.
First up the warm group - ripe persimmon, milled lavender, and squeezed lemonade
The feather runs diagonal across the die so my tag needed to run that way. I just laid the tag on the die and clipped the corners so it would run through the Vagabond machine. Easy solution.
Before letting go of the stencil, I used the tip of my finger to rub over the stencil...basically wiping away the color from the middle of the burlap....
So I am now off to Inspiration Unlimited! I have a tutorial coming up on Sunday over at Simon Says Stamp as part of STAMPtember...I will send out a reminder post so you don't miss it. Then I will be back next week using that orange feather I made. I that that one is going on a layout I have in mind.
