A warm welcome to my new followers, I am so delighted that you have joined me, I just hope I can live up to expectations!
This is my entry for Tim's Tags for May. Again, I did not have most of the required products but I think I am getting quite good at 'winging' it. For me that is part of the challenge.
I covered the manilla tag with some vellum that I got ages ago from Kanban, inked the edges with Frayed Burlap DI, cut down a Tim Holtz birdcage die and a dress form die, added an empty cotton spool which I chopped in half (don't ask!) and covered in packaging twine. The red stamp at the top is from a railway set of stamps by Creative Expressions.
The flowers were a little more difficult, I got an empty mini pie dish (mince pie I think), put some clear embossing powder in, held on to the tin with tweezers and heated it. Once melted I dipped the flowers in (which I lightly inked with DI first) and voila - they don't look too bad. You do need to be very quick with this method or find a second pair of hands to help.
If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them and I always try to repay the compliment (I am not on Facebook or Pinterest though). Crafty hugs, Anne x
