I feel so much better today,
(I am almost back to my normal self)
I got up this morning & dashed into my craft room
& only came out for lunch (tee he hee)
I have made a tag for the the stamp man challenge
this time the theme is CHRISTMAS, click on the link to read all the details.
I cut a tag from red card as my base,
I then cut a smaller one from scrap paper
& layered scraps of patterned papers onto it,
then edged it with brushed corduroy DI, to age it up a bit,
then stuck them together as shown.
I made the fragment charms as Tim shows us in his book,
(this is a catch up tag for the compendium of curiosities challenges,
that I told you about a few posts ago,
this one is for week 17 [fragment charms]
another one down, still a few to go but I'm getting there)
the tree is a paper artsy hot pick stamp,
that I stamped in versa mark,
then heat embossed with glittery embossing powder,
I then cut it out,
I went all over it with brushed corduroy DI, to age it again,
I did the same with the sentiment sticker
& added a couple of brads.
next I want to show you the tag hole,
when you make a tag yourself you don't get the nice bit round the hole,
so I make my own with 2 circle punches & stick it over the top,
I think it looks just like the real thing & finishes it off nicely.
all that's left to say is, a gem glued to the star for a bit of bling
& red satin ribbon through the hole,
& it's job done.
hope you like it.
I would love to read your comments,
please speak to me,
I won't bit honest
(well not very hard anyway lol)
May I take this opportunity to say thank you
to all you lovely people that have wished me better, &
the lovely comments you have all left me,
I appreciate every single comment I get from you.
so thank you once again.
well I'm off to link this up over at the stamp man blog,
