My entry this week is a little tag I bunged together whilst I was having a quick Saturday night Skypey sesh with Ellen - for some reason my Mojo has well and truly upped and offed to sunnier climes... the old cad... and he has been gone for over a month!!! However, just sitting yakking with our Ellen made him come home (momentarily) so I grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and got cracking making this tag. The background was made by spritzing the tag with Antique Linen, Bundled Sage and Frayed Burlap Distress Spray Stains... I LOVE these colour together. Once dried, I used Tim's Latticework Layering Stencil and Bundled Sage to add a bit of detail to the Bundled Sage bits where the sprays had landed. I blended around the edge with a smidge of Gathered Twigs and then used Walnut Stain Distress Marker to puff little speckles onto the tag.
The butterfly has been sitting on my desk for yonks... inked and cut out but not coloured... so he got some Bundled Sage and Stormy Sky DI blended onto him and then I set about making something for him to sit on. I have tonnes of Prima flowers so I made a little bundle... and used a feather that Grim had cut out for me last week (it was supposed to be used on last weeks tag but didn't make it on there!) using Tim's Writing Desk Alterations die feather.. I love the look with the bookpage and a bit of Distress Ink. A few embellies and a typed word (yep, the old Underwood came out again for this... can you see on the G... it has a bottom bit of red... need to sort that out, must be the ribbon thingy... as ever, I am showing my intelligence with all things teckernickals lol) And there you have it... one tag, made in an hour! Hurrah!
That's all from me.. I am typing this at great speed as I should be in bed... I am driving to Hull first thing for a Dabble Day at Craftique.. I needs my beauty sleeps so I shall say... Thanks for looking and have a great day! TTFN
