'Mothers Day' Tag SwapHi Everyone, I've been really busy lately, end of year for work accounts to get up to date. Have just finished making some Tags for a swap with Kim aka MoeScrap on the Paperphenomenon site. www.paperphenomenon.com The swap theme is 'Mothers Day' First time I've done anything like this & it was great fun. There are 8 of us taking part so I had to send 7 all the same over to the USA.
I am also using my one for a Frilly & Funkie Challenge.
So here are some photos of the creation of my tag.
|First I used Antique Linen Distress Stain all over the tag, then used Vintage Photo for added colour stamped with Gathered Twigs.|
|Embossing with my Vagabond.|
|Inking over embossing with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Also added Black Soot around the edge.|
|Inked white trim with Distress Stains|
|I printed a verse onto some book cloth with my inkjet printer, then stitched it onto two pieces of muslin that I had coloured with Distress Stain. Added four brads to the corners, then attached it with some ScorTape to my tag.|
|Here I used Archival Ink for the stamp and then used the water colour technique using Distress Ink pad and some Distress Stain as well.|
|Then to age it I used Distress Ink in Antique Linen & went over the entire image. I then cut them out and went around the edges with a black ink pen.|
|Made a little tag for the back with my details on.|
