Crafting For Gold Day 2

Hi all :-)Here we are with Day 2 of the Crafting for Gold event :-)

Todays challenge is

CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND

Todays sponsor is Indigo Blu , please pop over to the Crafty Ribbons Inspiration Blog for more details of the prize and to join in !! :-)

I decided to make a tag today :-)



I started with a basic white tag from Tim Holtz and inked with the new Summer Seasonal inks and a little Vintage Photo around the edges. I then splashed with water to create splotches, distressed the edges and used a Tim Holtz stamp inked with brown chalk ink.

I used various stamps from the Indigo Blu ‘Sewing Mends the Soul’ set, stamped and coloured with copics and then adhered with scrap dots. I added a strip of Sentiment Ribbon along the side and added some Vintage Buttons too. I used some 7mm Natural Silk ribbon, some Vintage Twine and a scissors charm from my drawer to finish.



Please pop over to the Inspiration Blog to see what everyone made and to join in too ! :-) I will pop round to see you all when I get back from my trip :-)
