Hello and welcome. There are many things I should be doing today, no must do today, but decided I just wanted to finish this tag I was working on and share it with you. Over at PaperArtsy Jo Myhill has been sharing some great projects, if a bit out of the comfort zone. This quarters guest designers are certainly challenging us. Anyway after being totally bamboozled by the whole I decided to pick one element and just get started. Somewhere along the way it all went a bit strange, in a good way, and this tag is the result.
I was looking at Jo's first project which had quite a lot of elements but I decided to start at the tag. I coloured my tag with VersaMagic Chalk Inks, my coffee and cake combo of Jumbo Java and Gingerbread. These two are delicious together. Then I stamped with the round stamp from LPC001. Actually I have used a surprising number of stamps on this tag. Jo had stamped on crunchy wax paper so I did that with the line of circles from SIBM4. Then I cut it into strips, pleated it and stuck it down. Then I went looking in the chipboard box for a heart to stamp and found a very nice rocket!! Yeah, now it starts to go a bit off track.
Since my colours were looking a bit blokey I thought OK on the rocket. I've coloured it with Pea Coat and Inky Pool. Then I stamped Winter Wonderland Plate 6 in Limelight. Her eyes are just under the 'it's your' but don't damage your eyesight trying to make it out. I went round the edge of the rocket with a gold ink pad but it needed something so I went around again with the Gingerbread. That reminded me of my favourite little circles stamp from SM12 so gingerbread circles all over. Then the sentiment from SIDD5.
I stamped the saying 'what is today but tomorrow's yesterday' from SIDD1 on crunchy wax paper and cut it out. I stuck the first three words at the top and the last two at the bottom and threw away the but. Some nice fibers for a tie and my tag is done. Really like the pleated wax paper. I mounted my rocket on sticky pads so it sits above the pleats.
