Anyway the theme for this one was Gold, so I decided to cut a tag. Then using the leftover bits from the Kanban acetate butteflies I inked in a few, using the TH distress inks, then used a mix of frayed burlap and tattered paper to smudge round the edges. Then it was a case of - what now? Cup of tea of course, pause to watch Team GB win a few Gold medals, and even the sun came out to celebrate.
Had a mooch amongst the stash, should I go for flowers? Or... had no idea what the 'or' was going to be! Lots of mooching, lots of messing with different ideas.
The tag needed a bit more adding to it, so went with the Dandelion clock set of stamps, and used the adirondiac inks, espresso. It was starting to come together. I stamed and embossed a piece of card and considered putting that inside the jigsaw wrap, but didn't like it! More searching through stamps, found my favourite sentiment... what the heck. So used that, just gently smudged the edges with the tattered paper ink pad, added a few gold chunky gems, and found some lovely flutterbies.
So this is it with the two flaps closed, the gold embossing isn't showing up very well.
Quite pleased with my efforts, but now think it didn't need the extra stamps, so may have a go at a second tag tomorrow. Also picked up a few techniques on CnC, which I hope to use tomorrow.
Well was due to attend a workshop on Saturday, but it has been cancelled :( Rats. So may have to make do with a trip to the craft shop...
Though Mr Murray may make the Olympic tennis final, in which case I'll want to be at home watching it!
Team GB had a great day at the Olympics, we seem to have waited ages for a medal, now it seems we're winning them left, right and centre... keep them coming!
