I really enjoyed my visits around the desks on Wednesday and look forward to doing it again.
I have met some really interesting people with all kinds of crafty interests.
If you are unsure what I am talking about visit Julia at Stamping Ground to find out more.
However today is Friday and I am here to show you a tag I have been making.
I had this half made for some time and then noticed the challenge at Simon Says Monday Challenge and decided to finish it.
Here it is sitting patiently, waiting for someone to love it.
It has still taken me a few days to decide how to complete it but here it is at last.
This shows the goodies I used to make it.
The stencil is by VIVA decor and is called Ornament Background.
I think everything else is pretty obvious.
I had started the tag by gradually building up the colours, applying the ink with a blending tool, through the stencil and once covered I applied further detail with the stencil and the PaperArtsy Grunge Paste.
I allowed this to dry and then went over it with the Treasure Silver and Treasure Gold gilding wax (gorgeous lol!).
At this stage I still could not make my mind up what to do and added a die cut flower by Memory box using some bright pink satin card.
And that was it until this week!
First a peek at this bit!
And this bit.
I added some extra texture in the form of Kroma Crackle and Distress Crackle paint.
You may be able to see this on the close-ups.
And finally the completed tag.
After adding the flowers and ribbon, I finished it with the sentiment and a dragonfly.
I will be entering this in the Paste challenge at Simon Says Monday Challenge
Hope you like it.
