and these are : tags, hearts and wings!, distress ink, using limited colours, seam binding and my love of all this Tim and idea-ology , textures,wire, all with a vintage feel ..so here is a piece that sort of sums up some of the things I love.. It is hard because I could easily have gone all rusty and steampunk too!? so here is my make:
for simon says stamp and show.. what are you known for!?
(wish I knew how to put my photos next to the text? anyone any ideas how to do that all help gratefully received!!)
I started with lots of inky layers and the brushed some snow cap paint dabber across, swiped with a baby wipe and dried then added some ink around the edges to hopefully give a soft and layered feel..I love taking one colour and using it to create layers!! very cool! I love the way the swiped paint gives it an almost chalky feel..very soft.. (it is a size 10 tag )
I stamped this fab Tim flourish in tea dye, dried and then stamped in clear, covered in sticky embossing powder and covered in loose rock candy...(bet you wondered how long it would be before I used it again!)
The heart cut using a new paperarstsy heart die , was painted, covered with ferro texture paste through antiquities stencil, then when dry painted with nougat fresco paint and lightly inked with tea dye.. a new found fave of mine! I then lightly stamped the music script across it.The wings...a real favourite of mine , were covered with sand texture paste, then painted and inked when dried. I then added some wire and a heart charm.
I added some letters cut from my new word play die..love it! they were painted with snow cap dabber, when dry stamped with music script form artistic outpost ephemera backgrounds....a truly fab set...and inked around edges.
Finally some idea-ology, dyed seam binding, twirl of wire , crochet ribbon and voila! hope you are still awake!!
hope those of you that stop by here feel this is me in a tag..well part of me anyways!?
stay safe, keep warm and have a fun and inky one!
