The compendium of curiosities challenge 24 is out
the technique this time is
ROCK CANDY DISTRESS STICKLES,
head over to studio L3 to read all the details.
This also fits for the Ginger Creations,
spicy supply challenge GC82 GLITTER,
head over HERE to read all the details.
Here's my tag for these challenges
Boy it's hard to get the stickles to show up on camera
(lots of shots later this is as good as it gets I'm afraid)
I used lots of Tim things on this tag,
paper stash (vintage shabby)
distress inks (pumice stone, stormy sky & frayed burlap)
alterations die, movers & shapers (tag & bookplates)
stamps, visual artistry collection (french market)
The flower stamp is by, crafty notions, karantha stamps (floral)
& Archival ink (coffee)
To get the flowers to puff up like this,
all you do is rub your ball tool in a circular motion
on the back of the flowers, resting on a soft mat.
The leaves are from some old silk flowers
I have horded for yonks.
The sparkly magpie bits are from a bracelet
my husband bought me a few years ago,
every time I wore it, it broke,
(the links were to small to take the weight)
I payed to have it fixed a couple of times,
then chucked it in a draw & forgot about it,
on a resent sort out I found it & thought
I may as well use it instead of it being in a drew.
I sewed it to the tag because I couldn't glue it.
& if you look closely it is the perfect size
(made to measure, & meant to be lol)
I love the monochrome feel to this tag,
I don't think I will be parting with this one,
it's my favorite (for now anyway) lol
well that's me for today,
I'm busy doing Xmas prep (as most of us probably are)
off to link this up,
thanks for stopping by,
