Rooted Love

Hello friends!
Have you heard about Wild Whisper? They are Canadian company that designs paper collections for crafters. They also carry coordinating boutique items for their collections including stamps sets, wood veneer, sequins, chipboard, cork & embossing powders. 

I recently bought the Rooted Love paper collection and journal cards from the lovely ladies at Wild Whisper and could NOT wait before I got creative with it.

I chose a medium Etcetera thickboard tag from Stampers Anonymous & the large bride & groom from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Dolls collection.

I started by painting some gesso over the tag then applying some molding paste through the Heartstruck Layering Stencil from Stampers Anonymous.

Next I began applying Distress Oxides in Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans & Worn Lipstick with a water pen & Distress Stain in Aged Mahogany.

 I gathered up a few journal cards from the Rooted Love collection and grunged them up with Distress inks & oxides.

I trimmed up some of the journal cards so that the images were isolated before I grunged them up.
Lastly I added the happy couple from the paper dolls. 

Here is a close up of the tag showing the Distress Oxides & Stains.

Here's another close-up of the stenciled image and the Oxides & Stains.

The finished tag - Rooted Love: Two People, Two Lifetimes, One Love.
