Oh I missed my What's on your Workdesk Wednesday yesterday but in my defence you can't see my desk just now. Time for a quick tidy after posting today before cracking on with my ironing!
In truth my craft room needs more than a quick tidy.
My husband has got me some fabulous map tables to go into my craft space but first I need to paint them and make room for them. I will keep you informed of my progress but don't expect it to be fast. I have a demo coming up in Inverness next weekend so I am waiting with anticipation to see what I will get in my wee box of goodies for then. That will come first. Me thinks I may need to have a bit of a clear out to make space too. Time to be brutal!
Back to today and I have the last of my tags from the Elgin demo, this technique proved to be popular on the day;
To create the tag background I ran Weathered wood ink pad direct to the tag and then embossed it with clear embossing powder then heat. I took my distress tool with Walnut stain and covered the entire tag wiping back off the embossed areas when finished....this seems to create a sort of leather effect...it's really "sick" (as my kids would say) or "awesome" (Americanism) or "neat" if you are me!
I distressed the edge of the tag and added more stain before stamping with Marion Emberson stamps "Birds and trees"and "Just because". The bird and the leaves are added separately. Finally I added ribbons from my stash to co-ordinate.
I think I could really get into this tag art....I can see the appeal.....a convert for definite.
Another post done and dusted now down to the fun part of clearing up.....boo, hiss!
