Hello, my dear crafting friends and followers (and new readers of course)!
The "mid month team" from Our Creative Corner which I am in is here to present you some more projects for inspiration, so we can see your projects entered with our June challenge soon! ;)
This time we are to choose "ingredients" from a "Recipe".
(I love this kind of challenges ;).
To see what you may choose from, hop over to Our Creative Corner and find out what Jenny aka Buttons has prepared for you.
I chose ribbon, lace and fabric from list A, metal from List B and inks and paints from List C to create this tag:
I covered the die cut tag first with a layer of old rose acrylic paint and applied a layer of crackle medium after it had dried. Over that I went with beige and pale blue acrylic colours. Then I left all to dry and let the magic of crackling happen ;)
After that had dried I partially stamped the wonderful Redlead damask pattern using embossing ink and heat embossed the patterns fragments with white embossing enamel.
The edges of the tag were distressed and blended using "vintage photo" DI.
I added some shabby looking ribbon I bought at "Depot".
Then I stamped a perfume bottle image onto some white fabric, which I toned down using DI "broken china". I glued the fabric onto the tag, blending the upper and lower edges with a self adhesive lace ribbon.
On top of that I glued a Prima fabric flower and added a small rose to the center.
I stamped the "Nightingale" text image from the lovely TJ Designs "Birds of a Feather" collection onto some beige card using DI "aged mahogany". With the same colour I blended the distressed edges of the small cut out piece of card.
Then I fixed the metal heart (from Redlead) with a sticky pad and some rough cord to the tag and stuck the nightingale snippet behind the heart and the fabric (and fixed that also with some double sided tape to the background of the tag).
Done! I hope you like my take on a shabby chic tag (don't do shabby chic very often as I find it quite difficult to do, but this time the crackling lead the way and this is how my tag turned out in the end). :)
Hop over to OCC and see what my teamies have in store for some more inspiration on our Recipe-challenge! Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your entries with our challenge! I leave you with some additional close-ups as usual ;)
