Well, had a lovely day today, the sun has been shining and we went for a lovely walk with the dogs. They're now stretched out sleeping - and smelling to be honest. I'm now catching up on Poldark - smashing chap wouldn't you say. Smashing.
Now then, be still my beating heart and get back to the crafting...
Tags, that was it. Tags. So, this is a piece I did for Crafts Beautiful a little while ago, but I thought I would take photos so you could see it in greater detail.
I used a MDF tag from The Dreamees, fantastic value for money, and really easy to decorate. I also used one of the Dreamees CDs for the papers. I printed a couple of sheets off and glued one to the bottom, the other to the top. I applied paint to the edges and the sides of the MDF.
I then stamped, using a Dreamees stamp, once on the MDF piece, again on white card, and then onto a scrap of the pink poldark....sorry, POLKA DOT paper :) I cut out the bottles and glued them over the top of my image. I cut out the rose and leaf, and popped them aside for a moment, and then I cut out just the labels from the polka dot paper.
The bottles and rose were coloured in using Spectrum Aqua pens,
Next I tied some of the Dreamees lace around the tag, and added some jute cord for that natural finish. I stamped a butterfly which I cut out and glued to the boy, together with the With Love banner, which I stamped onto plain card and inked the edges.
I decoupaged the rose onto my tag, overlapping the lace. I used Pinflair glue to attach the rose. I then added my finishing touches. I used glaze on the bottles, and added a little sprinkle of mica flakes to add a subtle sheen.
I love making things like this, they are easy, and make a brilliant gift idea.
Okay, back to Poldark - maybe I should just watch it again in case I missed anything.
