Hello and welcome to everyone visiting my blog.
The theme at FSC this fortnight is to “Make a Tag”…and we all love this one!
I’m calling this one “Old Friend”
The Stampettes have gone all out and created some awesome tags! They are such a talented lot of ladies. Meet our uber talented new teamies!!! Pop on over and check them out at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Marina from Cottage Crafts
has a fantastic prize each fortnight, so … I hope that you will be truly inspired, get the ink pads and stamps out and have a go…and, more than anything, have fun!
It’s amazing how many different ways you can make a tag!
A wonderful friend of mine is moving to another city at the end of the year 🙁 So this tag was created with her in mind (you will be missed…)
She is British born and a has a gentle soul. A lady through and through! I wanted to create a tag that reflected that somehow, and celebrated our friendship…ok, I love grunge, so it was difficult..lol…so I have come up with my version of “friendly, feminine grunge”. I hope you like it.
I was trying to think “outside the square” ~ so I went “outside the tag”. (sorry, couldn’t resist that!)
I had my first ever go at using DI that was mixed with water and painted onto an image. I think the watercolour effect is gorgeous, and gave me the look I was after.
There’s not much to this one really ~
The inks are Distressed inks (lots of blues and browns) and Memento Tuxedo Black.
Embossing powder TH gold, and “Alison Ellis Design” in chocolate sparkle and true blue.
A gold leaf pen for highlighting the swirls.
