The new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday is Shrink plastic. So as it's a wild card week you can do anything; a card, altered project or as in my case, a tag.
HERE if you want to have a go at making your own, it's great fun!
It is always difficult getting a nice stamped image onto textured surfaces so I stamped my image (I used Paperartsy Songbird) onto tissue paper in archival ink and adhered to the surface with matte multi medium. When it is dry you can still see all the textures but your image is nice and crisp!
I did do some extra stamping direct to the tag but they were patterns for added background interest so if a spot missed it was not too noticeable. I added a lace border to the bottom (Alterations vintage lace strip die - really lovely die!) I then cut a rosette out of stamped and coloured card.
I stamped the bird and the words onto white shrink plastic and heated to shrink. I added it to the rosette and attached to the tag.
Other than that I've not been up to too much crafting as I have been decorating on of the bedrooms but I have been doing some little bits for Saturday's craft fair
These little post it note folders, two using the same stamp set as for the tag
and the other 3 using these gorgeous Katzelkraft stamps.
Katzelkraft stamps are available direct from France HERE or in the UK they are sold exclusively at The Craft Barn.
Hope you all have a blessed and creative day.
