Hi everyone, I’m joining you again today with my second project using the fabulous Printables available from Etsy Magazine #printables #mixedupmag
I have to tell you that I’m adoring working with these materials! Today I’ve made an mdf tag:
The Printables have been combined with a Tim Holtz stencil; frame die from Crafter’s Companion and flower dies from Chloe. The stamps are from Visable Image and IndigoBlu.
Inks used were distress oxide in cracked pistachio and worn lipstick and ordinary distress in black soot and chipped sapphire.
I wanted a vintage patina effect so I used a kit from Pentart with some white card to create some background material .
Structure paste (Imagination Crafts)was used through the ‘ lace’ stencil and gold micro beads added on top. The tag was inked and stamped with pink and blue ink blots. Gold specks were added for extra interest.
A feather shape was cut from the music script print and gold wire wrapped around. The frame ( Downton abbey range )and flower was die cut from the patina background card. The little girl was fussy cut and inked.
Various labels and sentiments were selected and inked. The butterfly was stamped and cut out.
The tag was assembled:-
Metal butterflies were added.
Seriously my crafty friends you have got to get your hands on these Printables they are fabulous!!
