Hi there folks, how's your weekend going? Hope you're having a good one with lots of crafty fun. If you're looking for some inspiration we've got a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time our theme is 'Tag along' chosen by my lovely DT Sister MeggyMay. We've also got a new teamie joining us, Amanda is soooo talented you're going to love her work so pop along to the challenge blog and have a peek. As always there is a fab prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft so ink up those stamps to be in with a chance to win!
I've used 3 tags to make a beeswax collage. I began by painting some corrugated card and then applied some scraps of floral napkins with a coat or two of beeswax. The tags also got a coat of paint, then I applied the napkin with beeswax, this time I'd stamped the napkin with some text here and there. I also sprinkled in a few mica flakes for a bit of sparkle.
The next layer is a die cut oval, again painted before adding the napkin with beeswax, this time I'd stamped one of the Flonzcraft Gibson Girls on the napkin with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I made some paper roses using tattered florals and a brittania rose die, and die cut some foliage and flourishes and dipped them in the beeswax. I added Treasure gold to all the edges before I assembled everything, and used some scraps of green ribbon and brads at the top of the tags.
I've added an Ideaology book plate and found a sticker in my stash with a definition of love that just fitted perfectly.
Assembling it was a bit of a nightmare, I started with my hot glue gun but it all fell to pieces eeeeeeeek!! After a bit of a panic I tried Maimeri Matte Gel Medium and so far its holding together so fingers crossed it doesn't fall apart lol.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: love is in the air
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment
Bloggers: make your own background
In the Pink: die cuts/punches with lots of pink
Oozak: anything goes love
Our Creative Corner: Shopping Sins
(Ideaology stuff is one of my biggest - I'm always buying stuff and then decide its too pretty to use lol)
Really Reasonable Ribbon: love and ribbon
If you've got a minute pop over and have a peek at the projects my talented teamies have created as they are fab-u-lous!! Have a lovely Sunday and thanks for popping by
