Tag you're it (inner beauty)

Hello crafty peeps Oh my goodness what a mad, mad week it’s been here. Firstly we were meant to have a delivery Thursday of the new Panini cards that were due out, that didn’t happen as they didn’t arrive at the distributors until Friday morning (at this time Nikky had asked if we would help with the launch and I had said yes) the distributors said they would get the sais “late” cards out to us for Saturday Ok we can work with that we reckon . For me that gave me Thursday and Friday to get as many of my cards made as possible, So while I’m busy crafting away Phil is getting listings and website ready for the delivery to arrive Saturday came so did a 3rd of the delivery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Phil asks the driver you should have another box on there he just replied no I haven’t and went. So he spends most of the morning on the phone to the company not that that made any difference as their attitude was well we close at 12.30 so wait till then.  So after sorting out the little delivery we did have while Phil at the Baggies at least I got more time to craft.
Our Delivery finally came Tuesday so I had to get cracking and open and sort I still had a card to make For this launch as I had got a little carried away with my makes and done my Friday make before my Tuesday make eeeeekkkkk so I swapped them and this is where we are now as I was a little busy Tuesday and then yesterday playing catch up I only got to finish the last make last night and hadn’t posted Tuesdays making on here at all.
So enough waffle on with my make I have made a large tag for this one as Nikky wanted us to do one make that wasn’t a card,  here it is
I used a paper from the Octavia collection I decided to print one of the gorgeous sentiments that come with these over the paper in a faded print randomly to look as of it had been stamped on then cut it out to the size of my tag base and glued it in place then I got my stencils out I coloured the stencil paste with mica powders and stencil medium to add texture.

I punched a reinforcement for the centre hole using 2 punches of ½” and 1” punches I then distressed the edge then added a large floppy bow with a pearl brad centre.

For the image I have used inner beauty from the Ula’s life collection and this time I coloured her with Prisma pencil then fussy cut her out and added her to the tag with 3d tape 

Hope you like it and I will see you again tomorrow with my final make of this gorgeous collection.

Challenges anything mixed media


Happy Crafting
