Sunday once again and this week has gone too quickly for sure !!! I have managed to find some time to craft this week, as this is such a busy time for birthdays and other celebrations, but I do apologise for not returning so many visits during the last 2 weeks. I will however, certainly drop by your blog between today and tomorrow x.
Below is a tag hanging that I made using stamps from Paper Artsy, ink and the dog range. They stamp so beautifully with gorgeous clear images.
First of all I embossed the tag, which is a size 10 manila tag from Ranger, using a Sizzix TH embossing folder. I used various shades of Distress inks, which I then spritzed and flicked with water.
I decided to layer some stamps over the tag and just randomly stamped text and a bee from Tim's Stampers Anonymous range.
Some Paperartsy Grunge Paste was applied through a Dylusions stencil and once dried blended with Treasure Gold wax in White Fire and Sapphire. Some of the embossing was also treated with the wax.
The dragonfly, which was originally silver, has been in my stash for years and I recently came across them when searching for another item !!. I painted the dragonfly with Adirondack Paint Dabber in Jupiter. Once dried I spritzed with gold cosmic shimmer mist and I just love the aged, almost verdigris appearance.
Some stained and aged cotton was placed through the tag top and a clear bead attached to complete the look.
THank You for your kind comments which are really appreciated. Off for a wee cuppa then to catch up with you all. Have a great Sunday and enjoy the week ahead.
