To my tag swap partners, here is what you're getting from the post hopefully soon.
I decided to make all tags the same to simply find out if I could re-create one design on each tag. I enjoyed this so much I can't wait to participate on the next one!
The manila tags I had on hand were a little bit smaller than required for this swap so I backed it with a slightly wider cardboard. I coloured the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad in Vintage Photo. Then I sprayed Glimmer Mist in Brick or Pinecone (oh boy I can't remember which one!) over a flourish mask . I stamped the tag with lovely French script and embossed it. Crackle paint, a strand of fibre, couple of ribbons, bling and Prima flower ... there you go!
The other side is a surprise for each of the lovely ladies in my group. :)
I really hope you will all like it.
UPDATED Friday 19 February 2010 : All tags shipped today!
I recently subscribed to Swirlydoos and received my first kit. I love their kits! There's an element of surprise, you don't know what you're going to get. When you get it, it's loaded with lovely stuff. :)
This kit came with a bunch of 12x12 paper, including a dollie, tons of flowers, stamps, bling, chipboard alphabet and hearts, Tim Holtz crackle paint in antique linen and my most favourite, canvas screenprint.
I'm really into tags these days so what better way to incorporate them in this project than use the curves as inserts. The hearts were distressed using Aged Mahogany and crackle paint. The tags are made of the canvas screen print, stamped flowers and bling. BE MINE letters were sprayed in Glimmer Mist.
Happy Valentine's everyone! :)
P.S. : For my FIRST blog follower - Jason - I will never forget the day you gave me a gigantic CAULI FLOWER for Valentine's day. I'm sure the grocer was curious why you bought the biggest one in the shop! :D
