On Sunday I had myself a crafty day and I promised my 3yr old daughter that I would do a tag with her. Somewhere in between taking out the materials and finishing the tag she had left me to watch Strawberry Shortcake and I was making a very Tim Holtz-ish tag, lol. Of course when it was finished she was devastated that there were no butterflies on it...
This is the first time that distressed just happened for me. I don't think I even thought about what I was doing. It started with the gold embossing, as my daughter loves how that works and everthing just fell together after that.
I used 2 of TH stamp sets, Life's Possibilities & French Market. The music paper came from a little pack I bought from Etsy and I distressed it with Antique Lines and Vintage Photo distress inks. I also used Vintage Photo to stamp the diamond shapes and edge the tag itself. I used Tuxedo Black Momento to stamp the man, then I cut him out and stuck him down! All of the metal embellies are TH - game spinners, washers & hinge clips can be found on Pez-A-Doodle's store.
Whiff of Joy Challenge
It's been a while since I got to do a Whiff of Joy challenge. This week there is a sketch by Heather to follow. I used Kneeling Willow & BG Bittersweet for this one.. it's a bit... erm... PINK!! lol.
OK, so it's LOT pink!! I tried to tone it down using cream ribbon and plenty of bling (like bling was gonna help!?!?). Of course, then I went and stuck a pink/white flower and a pink pearl brad, haha! So it is what it is.. and it's PINK!! :-)
I'm having a stash clean up today, which means pulling everthing out, sorting it, labelling, etc. so if you don't hear from me in the next 48hrs call in the rescue squad!!
