Tag it at Crafty Individuals

Morning all! Phew - well I'm glad thats mad Thursday out of the way for another week although it was even madder than usual yesterday as I had to go to a guiding meeting last night - I don't know when I'm supposed to craft - lol xx

The theme at Crafty Individuals this month is tag it  - now those of you who visit regularly will know how much I adore Crafty Individuals stamps and I was fortunate enough to win on their April challenge - so my entry for the june challenge involves the stamp I chose as my prize. Here's what I did:


I made the tag first - its a size 8 manilla tag that I have coloured with distress inks (mustard seed and tea dye mainly) then put it through an embossing folder (Darice) and rubbed staz on Over the top to bring out the pattern.


Next I did the main stamping - the chickens - I stamped with momento after first adding antique linen distress ink to the card I was stamping on. Then I used spectrum noir pens to colour the birds and the eggs.


Finally I created the bagground using scattered straw and antique linen distress inks and spritz and flick technique. Then I used elements of the build a meadow set to randomly stamp in archival sepia ink.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  25. This is lovely, the tag itself looks great with the netting type embossed background, and the chickens are adorable. The meadow stamps in the background work beautifully, and you have used such pretty summery colours too. x
