I had to keep quiet, but can now 'show and tell"
Linda blogged her stamps recently and showed some beautiful tags which are fabric based.
So, I couldn't wait to have a go and ploughed on in my usual chaotic way, paints, stamps, inks, paper, glue etc all scattered about in my wake!
I started by covering a PA tag in cotton fabric, glued with Claudia Hellmuth and proceeded to scrape fresco paints across it with a palette knife. I used Lake Wanaka, Limelight, Toad Hall and Hey Pesto.
This is when I lost faith in my work and threw everything at it. Lilac spots, little circles, swirls and Peeled Paint Distress inks around the edges. Typical me again, chuck the kitchen sink at it.
I stamped Lin's sentiment "Take a moment to embrace today" and heart stamp onto green tissue paper and glued them to the tag. punched holes, threaded ribbons, attached a flower, Distressed the edges in Black Soot and…….I think that I rescued it.
