Haberdashery Tag


Haberdashery Tag

Well, we seem to have a new layout and set of options for the blog.
So far, pretty cool!!!

I kinda like the new options where we can upload pics as we go.
And Preview along the way, too.

This is using the new Tim set of stamps Haberdashery.
I love the way they jump out from the bright colors I used. 


The green is created by blending the China and Mustard.
Pretty Cool, heh?



I used the Tattered Floral Die with Metal Foil Tape on Grungepaper...this stuff is too fun....and a Texture Fade Dot Matrix to emboss.
Then apply the Denim and Lettuce Alcohol Inks to the metal.

Add some Silver Paint Dabber to the Philosophy Tag to make the letters and numbers show up better.

The little neckline piece is a piece of Lavish Trimming cut in half. Kind of cute.

The Trinket Pin is hung with Jump Rings through the tied bow.




Now this was the fun part. I took the Manila Tag #8 and the new Die Mini Scallops and Pinking to trim the bottom.
That's the blue color on the bottom.

Then the piece that was cut off is turned over and inked with Distress Inks in Reds.
Stamped with the Millinery stamp from Adverts set and glued over the tag to form the contrasting reverse scallop.

I raised the Ruler Ribbon onto heavy Chipboard for dimension.
The little Snaps are from my stash. Discontinued, I think.

Add the Baubles to the flower with a couple of Jump Rings.
Three tiny pearls were added to the neck of the dressform.....and that's it.

I did layer it onto black cardstock. I like that for contrast with the colors.

I am scheduled to be the Featured Artist today on Scrapbook News and Review, so check it out for a fun tutorial with embossed metal and alcohol inks on an Artful Dwelling house. Post goes up at 8PM.

Have a great week out there.

Lovin' the ease of the new format here!!!!
