Warm Layers.........no jumpers !!




Welcome  to everyone............especially my new followers !!! I am thrilled that you have joined me on my journey in Blogland.

I am so fed up with the wind and rain the last few weeks so decided to create a  quick tag using warm colours, layers  and various Distress Inks.

You can find the technique 'Faded Layers' in Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2, page 43.

I did have a 'Happy Accident' when tying my ribbons. My own fault as I did not use the rings on my  Sizzix die cut tag and pulled the ribbons too tight !!

However, I just cut the top off the original tag and layered it to another, which I inked with Rusty Hinge DI...........lovely and warm :-)  added some twine, adhered with Ranger Wonder Tape.









I used a variety of Tim's Stampers Anonymous Stamps and an Ideaology Mask to create the layers.
There's a touch of Distress marker's too, which I diluted with my water brush.

It was really fun and took my mind off  the horrible weather for a while. Like many of you in the UK and Europe I am looking forward to sunnier climes.

As always thank you for taking the time to visit and if you leave a comment I will repay the compliment. 

It will be my  1st Blogaversary in a month and I plan to have a giveaway to followers so please pop back for more details.

Crafty Hugs as always

  3. Hello Annie
    You have obtained such richness along with the warmth on your Tag, your selection of stamps and the design look amazing, and your one element of the thick twine creates a gorgeous natural tactile texture.
