'Rolling Recipe' Tag 1

It is nearly the end of January and this is my first crafty post of the year so far ! Just finally got my finger out and took part in Gails Rolling Recipe tag challenge being run over on UK Stampers Forum.

This weeks challenge was to use these three ingredients:
  1. A Stamped image
  2. Lace
  3. Glitter

I used a white card base tag and coloured this with Distress inks in faded jeans, dusty concord & broken china applied with cut'n'dry foam as shown. The background was then completed with stamping large distress spots applied with a foam stamp and the same Distress inks. The background words and French postmark (Sizzix polymer) were stamped with vintage sepia Versafine ink as was the square stamp (foam).

The 'lace' at the bottom of the tag is actually paper lace coloured with the same Distress inks and applied in layers first on a piece of blue card which was trimmed and stuck to the base of the tag.

The Eiffel Tower stamp was from the same set of polymer stamps and was stamped with onyz black versafine, coloured with mustard seed Distress ink and cut out before applying with Glossy Accents as shown.

The 'Ohh la la' embellishment was made by applying rub-on letters (Making Memories) on a purple card base and trimming to size. This was applied on foam pads to raise it a little.

Finishing touches, and the last ingredient, were added with gold and diamond Stickles glitter glue on the Ohh la la and Eiffel Tower before an eyelet and some silk sari ribbon were added with the crop-a-dile.
