Time 2 Stamp - Episode #1

Welcome back this morning :)


I shared with you earlier some info about our new show Time 2 Stamp with VLVS! and I'm super excited to bring you the first episode. Every other Monday starting today we'll be sharing videos with you based on VLVS!. We'll be airing tips and tricks, bits n bobs, info, examples, tutorials, DIYs, and anything else you can think of! If you have suggestions, questions or comments be sure to post them here or on our facebook wall so that we can address them each show! We're totally open for suggestion :)

For the debut I've decided to show you how to make your own foil tape. The focal point of the video is on foil tape and creating the faux metal background that is oh so popular since the debut of the September 12 tags of 2012.



so grab the following supplies and get to watching the first episode!
-Tin Foil from the cupboard
-Archival Ink
-Acrylic Paint in black and brown
-Steel Wool
-Cream colored cardstock




To finish the tag I actually DID use the distress ink to distress my fussy cut stamp. I also grabbed "Art is the Last" 18925 and stamped it as the message from my typewriter. I needed Miracle Tape to adhere my goodies down. For additional supplies I used some beautiful May Arts ribbon, TH's film reel , Gears, a vintage pen nib, a butterfly die, some basic grey paper, random eyelets and brads. 


Linking up to Anything But A Card and TH's 12 tags.
