Tim's December tags are here. The only problem for me was I was missing the key ingredients. I had to improvise...
The background is a mix of Broken China & Tarnished Pewter Distress Stains. I never seem to get the same effect as Tim and this was about my 4th try to replicate the effect. I die cut my soldier from a scrap of the same background. I die cut the soldier again in Metallic Tape Foil. I also die cut him from a book and a map. They both look very cool. Just need to use the rest of my army on future projects.
I stamped text over the background using grey versafine ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I added the Postcard stamp using black Stazon over the embossed background along the right edge. The silver pieces on the soldier also received some text stamped in black Stazon. The Joy is also a stamp stamped on the metallic tap and cut out.
