Hi you all! We had a very wet and windy day yesterday, so I was pleased I didn't need to go anywhere. I stayed home, read, and did some crafting. I even did some H*******K - well, I switched on the dishwasher and put everything back into the cupboards again afterwards!
The first one is for the *Texture* Challenge at *Simon says stamp and show*. The tag has been made from a cardboard remnant covered with a piece of patterned paper, which I embossed with TH's clocks folder and distressed with vintage photo. The clock (LaBlanche) has been stamped onto a scrap of K&Co paper; the wings and flower have been made from cardboard using TH dies. The flower has been embossed with my *dirty-mix* EP, and tied together with some twine and glass bead. I added a TH stamped ticket, but altered the text on it, and tied on a *time* charm. The lovely glass flowers I have used on both tags were sent to me last week by Diane
The second tag I am entering into the *Frilly and Funky* Challenge, where this week the ladies want to see twine and craft paper. The background has been covered with some printed paper, which has been distressed and stamped in vintage photo and forest moss. I used TH's Sewing Room Die to cut the cardboard pieces, which I distressed using the same colours as before. I added twine to the *lady*, the button and the cotton reel. Before sticking them down I added some lace and some hessian to soften the background a bit. I used a mini-clothes-pin to add a ticket, and used some more of Diane's lovely glass flowers to give it more structure and depth.
Blogger has been playing up the past few days, putting the photos on the left of the column instead of in the middle, why I do not know....Hope you all have a good day, take care and thanks for coming by!
