If you are a non smoker before pointing out the damage smoking does to any of your smoking friends and family stop! I'll not go on this as I've got no idea where the lecture came from or where it's going!
Anyway being indoor weather I've been playing. The CAS card I made I'll share on Tuesday. Now I wonder why that would be. then having been neat and clean I went in the other direction. Having tried and failed to stencil with spray some corrugated card I pressed this kraft tag onto the wet stencil. Next it was over stamped using a La Blanch stamp and Olive Green Versa Fine, a second stamp used 3 times on the bottom stamping off the edge. The failed corrugated (a used coffee cup cuff) was flipped over and stamped on the back this time in Versa Fine Black, the images were fussy cut out and coloured with Sakura Glitter Pens, they shimmer. Using a nail file kept for the purpose the edges of the tag were distressed, and then DI blended over in shades of green, brown and orange/rust. The original mask/stencil (Tando Leaves) was laid back over the tag and Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold sprayed over. Some Viva paste spread down the side and on the edge, now the three repeat stamps were added. Just a fun little project to while away an other wise dull day.
I wonder what these people will make of it, they are all challenges followed by my friends at Challenges for Days
