Normally on a Friday I take part in the Forgotten Friday Challenge, but as Judith is on Holiday this week there is none, but I decided to go ahead and make something anyway. This is both old and neglected, and new, as I have used stamps that have not been inked before and a new to me Tim Holtz large label Sizzix die. Ive always admired what other people do with labels, but have never made one myself, so this is my first, which I decide to pop onto the front of a card. After cutting out the label I then put some distress inks from the pads onto my glass cutting mat and spritzed with water and place the label onto the ink to colour the background. The colours I used were Scattered Straw and Rusty Hinge, I also used these to go around the edges of the label after it had dried. I then used several different stamps from Chocolate Baroque, which were Teeny weeny Meadow,Wild Meadow and Bird Song, the sentiment was also from the Bird Song stamp sheet. Then at the top I used the branch from a Stampscapes sheet. I've threaded organza ribbon through the top of the label in three different colours which I've also place on the card. The backing paper is from Artylicious, Essence of Nature CD which has been matted onto first a rust coloured card and then brown. The corners are cut from the same rust card using Architectural Accents corners from Sizzix, Then I've just added the ribbon in matching colours.
Thank you for taking the time to look.
