Yesterday evening I came back home after spending a pleasant couple of days with a friend. I suppose it's common to all people to do the necessary things first when they get back home - like unpacking your bag, putting things away etc. Well, I didn't. I dropped my bag in the hall and went and checked my craft things straightaway - it was all still there, waiting for me, looking sort of tidy and unused....Of course, I soon changed that! Got down to making some tags. I cut the tags from scrap-paper and used a page out of one of my old magazines from 1899 - which was, unfortunately , torn beyond repair - and cut out strips to stick onto the tags. I distressed the tag with TH inks in gradient colours, and then added rub ons (LaBlanche)and images (Crafty Individuals) and a charm made from a piece of an old necklace with a metal tag put on at the end instead of a bead. Some fabric flowers were added to give the finishing touch, and that was that. I am entering this tag into the GC90 *Charms* Challenge over on Gingersnaps
as my second take on this theme.
This postcard is for the *Simon Says stamp and show some ephemera* Challenge.
The background of clocks and writing has been stamped with resist ink onto the card before distressing with TH inks in gradient colours. The leopard has been stamped with black archival ink and clear embossed, as has the clock at the top right (leopard and clock stamps are both from LaBlanche, the background stamp is from Paper Artsy). The golden clock and frame on the left (stamp from LaBlanche) has been stamped with a Tsukineko glue pad to which I stuck sme gold leafing bits. The chandelier is a rub on, and the tapes on the left side from TH. Oh yes, and I added a game-spinner and a bird cut with a Martha Stewart punch to the top clock. Was fun making something crazy again!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
