Let’s go somewhere

Hi Everyone!..

I have been playing with Distress Oxide inks on kraft cardstock tonight πŸ˜€

I made a wee tag

Lets go somewhere

I put so many layers of ink down my tag warped quite a bit, so I double layered it ontop of another one to give it a bit of stability..

I used Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Iced Spruce, and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks

I also used a lovely Petaloo Darjeeling Teal Dahlia flower, a Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker, and my Uniball Signo White Pen..

I used a Prima Finnabair spotty stamp over top of the oxide inks and finished it off with some Maya Road Fibres …

As always, thank you for popping round

A Merry Christmas Gift Tag

I’ve been MIA again.. hubby is on call this week and when he’s on call, my workshop and crafting have to take a back seat πŸ™‚

However, tonight I have had a chance to come up into the workshop, in the freezing cold, snowy weather and have some fun making things, first up is this gift tag, it measures 3.5″ Β x 4.5″ and is the leftover part of the chipboard mini album page that I used when making the “Twas the night before christmas” tree hanger.
