WOW August already, where is this year going? I suppose it is true the saying "Time flies when you're having fun" I sure have had fun so far this year with lots of exciting news and experiences. When I took up papercrafting I never in a million years thought that I would have so many lovely crafty friends from all over the world and even had the priviledge of meeting a few of you.
The theme for this month over at Cards Galore Challenge Blog is Tags, we on the design team sure had fun making these and here is mine.
The tag is actually mount board which has been painted with purple paint and then a layer of PVA once this was slightly tacky I then painted over with magnolia matt emulsion and dried with heat gun to get the crackle effect. I then distressed over it with Tim Hotlz Distress Ink milled Lavender. Using the lavender stamp from Sheena Douglass' Simply Sweet set I have used Pebeo Acrylic Paints to paint the lavender. I then stippled the ground using a mixture of brown and antique white. Using WOW embossing powder in violet regular embossed the edges. The sentiment is from Flower Faires which reads Have a Fairy Happy Birthday. The word lavender has been embossed using WOW embossing powder gold. To complete the tag I have added ribbon and lace and then a couple of metal charms a dragonfly and bee.
