Hi! Have inspiration, must create!
~ Ü ~
I have a little tag to share today. Well, not so little . . . The sizzix TH tag die is rather huge, actually. It was a bit of a shocker when it arrived. On the up side, there's plenty of room to play in.
One of the places I'm playing at is Flourishes: The Beauty of a Technique. The tag background is one of my new favourite techniques. Emboss text print paper and swipe with ink. The pieces can either be torn, then embossed; or do a whole piece first, then tear. Adhere the torn pieces any old way you like. I've used several folders for these, but inked with the same colours (vintage photo, antique linen & walnut stain DIs). The background is finished with layerings of diamond print kraft paper, and grosgrain ribbon.
This tag uses the colours from PDCC - wine, smudge, leather & parchment. I love the combination, so am having a second cuppa.
I'm using a dressform as the focus of this creation. The grey chipboard has been inked in walnut stain DI and charcoal chalk ink. The "dress" is a piece of scrap curtain fabric, which I've gathered at the (very high!) waist. It is finished with some satin ribbon and and a vintage button.
The dress has such a lot of volume . . . I wonder if it qualifies for the 3D challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog.
I've added an inked chipboard spellbinders fancy tag, and topped it with buttons. There are more little stitch-y touches along the sides and bottom.
