Sunday Stamper - Week 312 - Pretty Paper

Goooodly Afternoon Stampers and a very happy Sunday Father's Day to you all!  Thank you for all your grand entries for last weeks challenge, I am a smidge delayed in visiting you all... I am on my way tho :O)   This week is a nice easy challenge... and that is to USE PATTERNED PAPERS.  Let's face it, we all have several tonnage of papers in our stash don't we? *just me then????*   To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 21st June 2014.



My entry this week is a little tag I made using Craftwork Cards Vogue collection of papers and die cuts.  This is one of my fave collections... it is all browny, creamy and peacocky in colour and very reminiscent of the 1930's.    I started out by covering a size 8 tag with paper, inking the edges with Pine Needles and Gathered Twigs DI's and adding a smidge of stamping using Watering Can Archival and Tim's flourish stamp. 



The dressform is from the die cut selection in the paper pack - it was a smidge too tall for the tag so I cut the top of it off to make it fit better.   And talk about fluke!  Check out the writing on the papers... it lines up with the writing on the dressform... kismet!  I added in a few embellies, little cotton reels, antique pearls that have been sitting around waiting for this project and some little flat back metal bits.... some linen ribbons for the top of the tag and some string and ribbon for the decorations on the tag and voila, finished.



Apologies for the late posting of the challenge this week... I was up late (watching England lose!) and when me alarm went off I went back to sleeps... ooops!   Anyways, hope you have a great day!  Thanks for looking... TTFN

Oh Hels you make some wonderful stuff but this is one of my faves. The colours are super and I so love how you've grouped the beads. I've been paper blocking canvases and canvas boards, just glue n sealed them but without a heat gun I'm praying the wrinkles disappear - not looking good just now. Any tips pse

Hels I love the gentleness your piece has this week.I keep promising to do some of the colour blocking that you do so fabulously but my wilful "Whatif" always jumps off in another direction as you will see here.
