I made plaid — Wendy Vecchi Style!

I hate to sound like a broken record, but I was inspired, again, by Wendy Vecchi.

She came up with this amazing idea to make plaid using Tissue Tape. Here are her instructions … http://studio490art.blogspot.com/2010/11/tissue-taped-color-washed.html

I decided to try something a little different and I used Distress Ink to come up with this …

It began life as a plain 12×12 sheet of white cardstock. Using Wendy’s technique, I created the plaid by adding different layers of tissue tape and Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

I cut out letters out of Tim Holtz’s seasonal paper pack for the title.

The turkey is a die cut from the Accu-Cut Center at Scrap Tales, inked with several shades of Distress Ink. I love how the colors blend! I used 3D Dots to add a bit of dimension to Mr. Turkey.

And, since I couldn’t find matching cardstock, I used some light colored scraps and inked them in Distress Ink to make the photo mats and journaling block.

Thanks, again, Wendy Vecchi and Tim Holtz! You’ve helped me create an awesome scrapbook page.

  1. It’s beautiful! The picture doesn’t do it justice. There are so many dimensions to it that can’t be seen with the photo. I love how Mr Turkey turned out! Awesome job!

  2. Candy – hate to burst your bubble but this is not new. This idea was used many years ago by stampin up. It is just being recycled.
