What a perfectly miserable Monday morning it is weatherwise! But you know what means......Perfect weather for crafting in! Well I would do if I was not in work!
It was my very good friend Rachel's birthday last week and just a few weeks ago Rachel was in my Craft Room for, as she puts it, "a darned good nosey"!! She asked me why I had all the tags around my room? I told her that some of them are for challenges and by creating artwork on tags, it is also a good way of practising new techniques or ideas without wasting too much paper/time to discover whether you like it or not. Well one of the tags that caught Rachel's eye was one I made using the embossing powder resist technique so to prove a point, I made a card version of that tag and here it is.....
I also got chance to use my new favourite DI - Seedless Preserves, as well as Rusty Hinge, Dusty Concord, Vintage Photo and Old Paper.
The bluey/purple background card is created using the card that I put in the base of my spraying box when using colourwashes/shimmers. When I think they look interesting I take them out and refresh with fresh cardstock! The butterflies and SU tag were also stamped onto Snippets of card coloured in the same way. Immediately behind is a piece of silver mirrored card, again a Snippet left over from a Christmas project no doubt.
The ribbon was also salvaged from the Snippets boxes which I must have had left over from making one of the other ribbons on that die and the flourish I found in my embellishment tin. You can see the button I cheated with thread by drawing with another great find......Sharpies White pen. Brilliant. Craft Obsessions have them. The best white pen EVER!
So overall I think I am entitled to link this up with Miss Di's Playground. Must remember to put the wellies on before I go over there!
TTFN and thanks for calling by.
