...sounds like a robbery went on ... in actual fact, it was me, forcing my inner Ink-Goddess to sit up and pay attention! So, instead of carefully selecting Distress colours, I literally just reached over and grabbed three. No time allowed to decide if they worked together or not... oh no, I was being strict with her. You see, I think she and Mr Mojo are in cahoots. A cunning plan has been set to try and trip me up and make me sit and moan and whinge that I can't make anything! Pah! Take that you two!
Blimey, I sound like a nutter but I am sure it will strike a chord with you all.... well, I am hoping that you say "yes it does" Cos if you don't...erm.. there will be no hope for me at all lol Anyways... said three colours: Pine Needles, Crushed Olive and Scattered Straw Stains. The tag was paper covered... ohh, I love those Papermania "book page" papers. They are well lush and perfectly sized to slip nicely over a tag. This one is a Russian themed one, hence the writing, but I chopped off the Russian Doll and the Kremlin bit of the pattern and opted to keep the florally bit. I spritzed the tag with water, pounced Stains onto it, stood it up, let it drip, dried it and then gave three Tattered Florals big flowers the same treatment. They had some stamping done in Viridian Archival - love this colour with Pine Needles...using Tim's honeycomb/chicken wire stamp. I put together a blousy rose and added some small Tattered Leaves and a music score banner... and a couple of pins and a sentiment... oh and some dangly bits. Voila, tag done.. and it took me about 30 mins! I know! Just goes to show that if I take control of the situation, there's less time for old Ink-Goddess and Mean Old Mojo to gang up on me and make me think about things too much.
Anyways... I had better get myself to bed... all this inking has me fair worn out! I shall be back tomorrow with another offering, I plan to make sure that I do this "I am in control" thing again... and soon! Thanks for looking... have a fab day! TTFN
