Anyway, I started with a blank manilla tag and used distress inks and a selection of Tim Holtz and creative expressions stamps to create the various parts:
1.The tag itself was coloured using distress inks in antique linen and tea dye, the text was then stamped using walnut stain......which is yummy and I don't use enough I decided!
2.The side panel was again coloured using antique linen and edged using tea dye, I then splatted (very technical!) my distress stain , antique linen, onto the card and once dry stamped enjoy the journey using antique linen, to create soft detail.
5.Finally all the elements were attached and a few embellishments added, namely a Tim holtz spinner, some brads and a flourish cut using Tim Holtz elegant flourish die, cut from grungepaper and coloured using black paint dabber and lastly a few staples, .... just because I HAD TO USE MY NEW TOY.....A Tim Holtz tiny attacher.!!
Anyway, that's all for now, I am off to put the heating on , it's freezing!!!! My husband says socks may be a good option, but bare feet and heating sounds much more appealing to me!!!!
Have a crafty day!
share the love and leave a comment...it makes my day!!
