For the past couple days, I've been puttering away in my studio, trying to get my desk clean. I'm a bit of a hoarder and I tend to save everything 'just in case'. It's a horrible habit, but I can't help myself! Today, I looked at the
The tag was one I used to mop up the leftover ink from my Remnant Resist project. The bird was a CHA project reject that was too pretty to throw away, and the flowers were cut from kraft paper when I made my Sizzix Mother's Day card. I put them all together with one of my favorite stamps from Tim Holtz' Way With Words stamp set. I just love that quote!
The bird was cut from Grungeboard using the Bird Branch die and painted with Adirondack Dabbers. When the paint was dry, I lightly sanded the edges and then inked with Corduroy Distress Ink. Some of the flowers were painted with the same paint and then given a spritz of Gold Perfect Pearls mist and layered with the plain kraft blooms. I added a strip of Tissue Tape at the top and bottom, and tied a Distress stained ribbon through the tag. Finally, I added a Remnant Rub to one of the new Tag Labels and attached it to the ribbon with a Wire Pin.
