Nature Garden Tag

Apparently, I'm wrong. Yes, I know you don't hear me say that very often. It seems that when I wrote a few days ago that I was an "unofficial DT member" for The Gypsy Chick, I was giving out false information. I am, as you can understand, mortified by the error and will now correct myself. I am not an unofficial member. There I've said it, I hang my head in shame. I am in fact, an official DT member. Sorry to those I've mislead lol.

And someone else, whose creations I adore, has joined the team too. But my lips are tightly sealed (for now). We are both, needless to say, very lucky to be given the opportunity to play with such gorgeous vintage-style designs.

I still have heaps of goodies left over from Jodie's Nature Garden Collection from Prima and last night I felt the itch to go ahead and make a tag.

I used the Primrose paper from the A4 pad as the background to which I dabbed around the edges with white acrylic paint. I stamped the vintage fairy image onto a separate piece of paper, before cutting it out and attaching with 3D foam pads. I then decorated around the raised image with a variety of ephemera including this gorgeous ribbon, which has a delightful tattered edge to it when cut. Perfect for a shabby vintage design. Have to say, I can see myself stocking up on it. Finally, I finished the tag off with the chipboard word "inspired" and a beautiful metal trinket frame.

It's looking like another wet weekend back here, so it should be a good excuse to stay indoors and play in my craft room. Though I think Nick is eyeing up the framed pictures which have been stacked up waiting for us to hammer some nails into the walls and finally hang them up. If it was left up to me, they'd sit there for another twelve months lol. Me, I want to go crazy in the kitchen and bake up some goodies, if it's wet outside. I'll let you know who wins haha

Have yourselves a wonderful, creative weekend

Many congratulations for the second and official time, Paul! I am wondering what's winning out in your house" or whether you can both munch cupcakes whilst holding the pictures and the hammer between you. :)

Neet said...

Love that tag - it looks quite a decent sized one too. You simply have a way with this shape as every one you make is scrumptious. Great image.
Now what the heck is Jo on about?

Hugs, Neet xx
