Evening all you lovely Bloggers. Friday again and the forecast looks gorgeous for the weekend. I hope you all get to enjoy the sunshine.
I've been out of circulation with all the challenges I enjoy lately and started out to make a tag for Frankie's Tag It On challenge which is Embossing of any kind this week.
My head was buzzing with ideas and I started with blending Brushed Corduroy DI around my tag and stamping a Crafty Individuals text before adding the swirls in Vintage Photo which I clear embossed.
The butterflies (Graphicus) were stamped with Brilliance brown, clear embossed and painted with Brilliance sage green. Liquid pearls were added for the body. I really love using this at the moment. It has been in my stash for ages unused, but now I've found a use for it, there's no stopping me!!
The flowers were punched and then cuttlebugged and a touch for DI rubbed over before I added a gem for the centre. The flowers were a second attempt, the first ones were brown but I've been making cream roses for a Wedding card and decided they worked better with the tag so the originals were pulled off and replaced.
I added some fake stitching around the edge just to finish it off and while browsing Blogland tonight found I could also enter it into the Allsorts challenge "In Stitches" (just) and also Simon Says Stamp "Things With Wings" so I feel I've been quite productive this week.
Thank you as always for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments. I always enjoy reading them.
