There's nothing I like better than sitting in the garden on a warm, sunny day with a book. OK, so I don't actually own a hammock (or any pink wellies for that matter), and it isn't really warm enough to sit outside either (this is Northern Ireland, didn't I mention that lol!), but I can dream as well as the next woman.
This was a little metal tag from a dog collar that I painted with distress paint and added some rub-on letters to.
Papermania Summer Bloom and Honey & Hugs rub-ons
Distress Inks & Paints
Olive Archival ink pad
Tim Holtz stamp sets
Spellbinders Just Swingin' die
I liked the design from the tag and thought I'd see what it looked like as a card. Trouble is that I didn't have any more rub-ons, so here are the results of an experiment with stickers and stamps.
This card uses the same images from a sticker sheet. I've added one of my favourite Crafty Individuals stamps to the background to give a little bird sitting in the branches.
...and here it is again, this time stamped with crimson archival and heat-embossed in clear before inking as before.
The inked background for all three of these creations is my favourite combination of Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage applied with bits of Cut 'n' Dry foam. Simon Says Stamp and Show are challenging us to use our favourite ink pad this week. Hopefully they'll let me get away with two favourites :-)
Just before I go, a quick hello to May from Gemini Crafts at Gracehill in Ballymena. We had a great afternoon getting all inky with distress inks and perfect pearls yesterday. She has some fab stuff in her shop and it's well worth a visit. Have a great weekend everyone! Maddy xx
