Good evening all,
Can’t believe how quickly today has gone,,
Wow it has been cold...and I believe it is going to get colder..
Hope you had a lovely weekend,,
We went over to The Botanist in West Bridgeford where Mikey is now
The Manager to have a family meal and a catch up...
(A definite proud parent moment )
Today , I though I would share another tag with you..
I made this one for a tag swap
I started with a ready made tag from my stash...
And added some Distress Oxide ink and water...
I then dried the tag before adding more ink...
And then repeating with another colour of ink.
I stopped when I was happy with the look of the tag .
Then I added some splats of Inka gold , and dried the tag once again.
Next I added the hare...
This is such a lovely stamp from Lavinia Stamps.
Now to create the background
I used a moon mask from Clarity and some Black Distress Oxide ink ,
Plus some copier paper .
I also added some black ink around the edges to frame the tag.
Next I stamped the grasses and hanging vines ...again from Lavinia Stamps
I stamped the Hello , this is from a floral stamp set from Apple Blossom Stamps
Which I used a few weeks ago at a workshop...
It is such a useful little stamp..
I then added a black border and some charcoal to make it look more 3d.
All it needed to finish it off was some ribbon, bakers twine and some dots of liquid pearls..
I do love making tags...
And I am really enjoying being part of a tag swap...
Before I go....
A little photo from the weekend.
Our little man ready for his meal out...
Take care everyone,.
Keep warm...and stay safe
Karl is away tonight ,
So I have Tess and Eric to look after me,,,
Love and hugs
Thank you so for this great tutorial . I love your tag and I'm so happy to see you using my new favorite stamp company Lavinia . . Your little cherub is growing and he is such a cutie . Spring is starting here in Virginia and some of the flowering trees are blooming .
Wonderful tutorial Jo, glad you had a good weekend in Nottingham. Isn't Elliot growing, he is so cute xx
Love the tag Jo & excellent step by step. Doesn't time fly when there is a baby in the family? Elliot is a gorgeous little fella. Is he on the move? If not he soon will be lol
Stay safe when/if the snow really hits.
What a beautiful tag! Love the colours and the stamps are lovely. I have a growing collection of Lavinia stamps, love their fairies. Hope you are OK in the snow. Xx
