Yesterday, unexpectedly, a tiny window for crafting became available so I used the time to play with inks and whipped up two quick tags. I’m sharing these over at Sunday Stampers where the theme this week is memories.
I think this is one of my favourite crafting techniques as you never quite know how things will turn out and you can usually cover up any small mistakes.
The first tag was made using kraft card that I first inked with Vintage Photo and then spritzed with water. I’ve used a variety of stamps, including a clock face , and a combination of Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Gathered Twigs.
The sentiment, a quote by Louisa M Alcott, who wrote Little Women, was printed of on my computer and mounted on cream card. I’ve added a strip of lace across the bottom and topped it off with a vintagy brad.
I stamped and punched the butterflies on to more cream card and added a little Vintage Photo. The ribbon is a bit of cream coloured scrim.
The second tag used Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn and a tiny bit of Tumbled Glass distress inks. I used some Iced Spruce to stamp the crackle and Tumbled Glass for everything else.
Because I was short on time, I used the same words and simply changed the font.
The butterflies were coloured with Promarkers and the ribbon is seam binding coloured with more Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass.
Thank goodness it was a short working week this week and that tomorrow is Saturday with, hopefully, lots of time for some proper crafting. I have some plans and it involves the Melt Pot!!
Thanks for buzzing by.
