Hello lovely ladies and welcome to the house of madness ! Yes the chaos continues here at the Pap residence which is why am a little late posting. I’m in the process of moving my craft room back home and have been busy plastering,painting, scraping and modge podging not to mention carrying tons of my crafty stash from one place to the other. Although my studio is close to home it’s a pedestrian area so no cars allowed great for the environment….bad for my back and shoulders and all my other bits.
Onto the matter at hand and time for our second tag challenge over at Get Creative, we had such a great response to our first one and I do hope you will all join us again, it was fantastic to see so many familiar faces. The theme for the whole month of May is flowers and as I mentioned on my last post although I love them I’m just terribly challenged when it comes to creating with them. Once again I had very limited supplies due to everything being boxed up so here goes…..
I once again made a double side tag using my Fiskars Fuse to cut and deboss it, I added Versamark to the flower to use as a resist I then sponged over the tag using my magic foam and various Adirondack inks. Tiny golden seed beads used in the centre and some lovely hand crocheted flowers that I was generously supplied with by our leader and this months sponsor Irini For the reverse of the tag I used this pretty thick felt which I cut de-bossed and inked up and passed it through the Fiskars Fuse. It’s a great machine and does all three steps in one pass. I really love the effect of the ink and de-bossing here. Not to leave my lovely Cameo out I cut some 350gsm card stock with this holey pattern and sandwiched it between the tags and there you have it.
Do pop over to Get Creative to see the amazing tags the rest of the Design Team have created you have until 30th of the month to upload your creations. The winner of the tag challenge will be invited back as guest designer for July and will also receive this fabulous gift from our leader Irini
Once again please forgive my lack of visits but hopefully things will be back to near normal within the next week or so , well as normal as they can ever be in this house.
Take care my lovelies
