Thank you for all of your congratulations for Sam yesterday. They were much appreciated.
This week I was looking at a some of the piles of bits I have lying around my workspace and I thought I would use what was kind of in front of me to create something. In other words I gave myself a little challenge.
I started of with a scrap of black glossy card and drew around a tag template and made a tag shape. I punched a hole with a small circle punch at the top of the tag. On my desk was a stamped image of a Hero Arts Flower which hadn't been stamped very well and was heading for the bin. I coloured it with Pro Markers in Ruby and Black, added some black glitter using a quickie glue pen and some Crystal Stickles .
I embossed the tag with a Fiskars Swirl Texture Plate. Cut half a red heart shaped doily and stuck it to the tag. I then tied a scrap piece of black tuille in the middle with some DMC black tread and stuck it onto the tag using a glue dot. I stuck a Black Pearl Pin from the Ribbon Girl through the tuille. I added a co-ordinating selection of scraps of ribbon through the hole in the tag. I cut white leaves using my Sizzix Sizzlits Flowers, Branches and Leaves set and stuck on top of the voille. I stuck the coloured Hero Arts flower to top it off and added a red gemstone to the centre.
I'm really pleased with the result. I've never made a tag topper myself before but Christine Emberson has been inspiring me on her fabulous blog Hopes and Chances. It was quite quick and easy to do and I liked that about it. I could sort of put it down and pick it up again when I wanted.
Hope you like it!
