Yesterday, I placed an order with Country View Crafts, I was amazed when it arrived this morning. You can't get better service than that! Here's a photo of my goodies. I got a couple of stencils and a pack of Idea-ology Paper Dolls. Because the order was a little over £20 I also got free postage!
I obviously couldn't wait to have a play so made this tag. Starting with a manilla coloured tag, I swooshed it through "Tea Dye" Distress Ink spritzed with water.
I used the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Chevron Layering Stencil - THS127" with two shades of Ranger Archival Ink, using "Peat Moss" and "Vermillion" shades.
I then lay the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Rosette" stencil - THS092" over the top and used "Red Geranium" Ranger Archival Ink through the stencil.
Over some of the plainer areas, I used a stamp with a crazing design, from the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous cling stamp set called "Mini Holidays - CMS142", which I stamped in Versafine Clair "Acorn" Brown ink.
I inked the edges of the tag using "Acorn" and "Chianti" Versafine Clair inks. I then used some metallic gold paint to splatter gold speckles across the surface of the tag.
I picked out a couple of designs from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology "Layers & Paper Dolls, Christmas 2023" set and coloured the figure using Derwent Inktense pencils, adding colour to the cheeks, lips hair and buttons. I then stuck the figure in to position and layered the flower on top.
Finally, I chose a phrase from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology "Clipping Stickers" saying "Diary of Events" and stuck that down. Then mounted the tag on to some green card.
