A Couple More Tags

Yes Kate, I know, it's pink!!!  I coloured the fabric flowers and strips of fabric with spun sugar distress stain.  The lace is coloured with vintage photo distress stain.  I added the skeleton leaf and the stapled tassel along with the image to the embossed tag.

Another tag made from the backgrounds created on the previous post.  Again I made the flower and added a couple of pieces of distress stained lace and fabric strips.

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.

Yay - A Tag!!!

Wow, guess what, I made a tag today.  Granted it's nothing special but hey come on.  It took me ages, just under 2 hours in fact and now I'm wacked!! But nevertheless I did something and got my fingers inky!!

I simply sprayed a few colours of dylusions ink sprays, dried them off and stamped my winning blog candy TH Game of Life stamp set.  I couldn't get to any others!! Neither could I get to any embellishments, so I just had to do with a piece of fibre I got from a recent order from Craft Obsessions!!!  I really wanted to distress the edges and use my distress inks to colour, but yeah you guessed it, I couldn't get to them!!! 

But I did manage to put my hands on a white pen which I used to accent some of the images to make them pop.

Ankle Update

Went back to the hospital on Tuesday, had my cast off, had my ankle x-rayed, got to see them too, screws and all!!!  Have been given a boot to support, still on the crutches, but non weight bearing for at least another week, so back on the sofa.  Have to go back to the hospital again next Tuesday.
