As part of my Tuesday Tags series, I wanted to pay homage to the late, great, Alan Rickman this week. As with all the tags I will be making this year, this tag has two elements:
- My New Technique – Stamping Letterpress
- Stash Used – Die Cuts with a View Burlap Paper
One of my favourite of all the scenes Alan Rickman was famous for, my personal favourite is the redemption of Snape – when he shares that he has always loved Lily Potter and that is what has been motivating him.
When the folder is run through a die cutter, such as my big shot, the ink is transferred to the card and embossing happens as designed. The ink design therefore looks like it is behind the embossed area. This means the final design is more detailed than other letterpress ideas.
For this design, I added a stamped Deer and using an Ink Blending Tool from Tim Holtz I added soft green for the grass.
I LOVE THIS TECHNIQUE – I will be using it again (and again and again)
