Linda over at Studio L3 has asked us this week to pop over to page 45 of the Compendium of Curiosities for this week's Challenge and follow the instructions on that page and make your project. This week the lovely Guys and Gals at Simon Says Stamp are sponsoring the Challenge too! Simon Says Stamp are also asking us to use Tape on their Challenge this week so I am entering this piece there too!
Here is my take on the Technique.....
As you see I have a bit of a "Love" theme going possibly due to it being mine and Mr Hettie's wedding anniversary coming up. For the tag I used some SU Very Vanilla cardstock and my TH tag die and a mixture of Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint and Black Soot Distress Stains and Distress Inks. The background stamp is my TH Butterfly collection and stamped with Cobalt Archival ink.
For the tape I used Purple Archival ink and my TH Christmas stamp to stamp on some masking tape. I then added a little Dusty Concord DI ink once it had dried. The Lace was created using my TH lace die. The flowers were made using the TH Pinecone die, glue gun and I added some DI and micro beads to the centre. You can see the bees have been and dropped some pollen on their way out!
I finished it off with a word tag, again from TH and some ribbon bought on our recent trip to Prague! Now that I have completed this tag, I have plans to use it on a scrapbook layout using a photo taken on our recent trip to Buckingham Palace.
Thanks for popping by. Do go and see some of the other wonderful pieces using this technique.
