Style 490 Stylee...

...indeedily... time for me to play with my favest stamps and stashly goodies... namely Studio 490 and Art Parts from the one and only Wonderful Wendy Vecchi. Now, alas and alack, I have only got two of the latest sets of stamps, so I haven't got the stamp that goes with this dressform Art Part... but I improvised and attempted to make it look like it's velvet covered...




Mmmm, well maybe a bit more work needs doing but I like it... the Art Part was covered with a dabbled layer of Trad Tan paint and then boshed with Fired Brick Distress Stains... then heat dried... and then I used my fingertip to smudge the ink a bit... actually it does look a bit better in real life lol I used a Memo Pin with a little Mini Safety Pin attached to it to dangle a Tassell.




The background of the tag was stamped first with Snowcap Pigment Ink - using the large bubble background and the small dots background stamps (more 490) and then I made a smooshyness of Stains on the craftsheet... Fired Brick, Spun Sugar, Wild Honey, Broken China and a smidge of Dusty Concord for goodly measures. The little bobbins were a gift from Ellen when I was in America... I wound some Twinery twine around and added more ickle Safety Pins and then made them look a bit mucky with Walnut Stain Distress Stains. So... that is that really... a quicky inky tag...oh and all of the 490 stamps and stashly bits are available from The Stamp Attic.


I think I might enter this into Simon Says Stamp & Show... are we allowed to enter twice I wonder... well, I shall try... cos this week the theme is... TAGS! How cool... seeing as that is all I ever seem to make!! Actually I am fibbing because I am in the middle of a biggy project... not a tag in sight but lots of delish 490 goodies... I am not sure how long it will take to finish... it is growing every minute so soon it will be too big for my desk rofl Anyways... time for me to get back to my desk and more inkyness... ahhhh, this is the life!! Have a goodly day... TTFN!
