A Couple of Tags



Well I'm now able to weight bear and have become sturdier on my crutches so I've been able to do a bit of arting, although it's taken a while as getting about is still so exhausting.


I saturated different colours of spray inks onto varying pieces of card and covered them with scrunched cling film.  Once they had dried I removed the cling film.  I cut tag shapes from the card pieces and then ran them through embossing folders with the big shot.


I made the purple flower from mulberry paper and coloured the row of fabric roses with dusty concord and crushed olive distress stains.  I also stained strips of fabric to create the ribbons for the tops of the tags.
