Morning lovlies,it's Tuesday and time for a new challenge with the Ladybugs,this week it's Pinky's challenge and a great theme she's chosen for this week I must say.
The theme is "Tag It"
Ok,a tag I thought,that'll be a nice quick one to do,let me share a secret with you,it took me absolutely ages!!!!!
The reason for this I'll share in a minute.
I decided to use my "Dear Santa" stamp inking just the tree part of the image and stamping it over the edge of my "Cricut" tag and colouring it with Copics. The scallop was also cut on the cricut I just added a strip of self adhesive ribbon that I've had in my drawer for yonks and inked my edges.
Right, now this is where it all became time consuming:- firstly,how do you ever decide on which bits of ribbon to use,it would be easy if I only had a limited selection but oh no,I have jars and drawers of the stuff.......first one length was cut,then another,discarded some,returned to others AAAHHHGGGG!!!!! I now have a pile of short lengths of the stuff. Next I added a few dots of glossy accents to the baubles,I did good there,never stuck my fingers in it once. Then,couldn't decide which stickles to use,ended up using 3 colours,red to the round baubles,icicles to the long ones and a tiny splodge of yellow to the star. So far so good! Then I added the button,threaded with the gold twine which I must have touched into the red stickles adding a few spots to my oh so lovely "White space" That'll be ok,I'll pick it off with the tip of my blade.....can't be bothered so I'll do it with my nail,WHYYYYYYY! I scratched the card making an obvious dent in the card, Enter Snowflakes, Save the day! Or so I thought.
It was then too late to bother with a photo so next morning I picked up my camera,checked out my tag feeling rather pleased that despite my troubles the tag was really rather nice. I then found myself fiddling with the button and managing to remove it from the dot of glossy accents I'd stuck it with, I know what I'll use to stick it firm with....Why I didn't learn from my previous day I don't know because I reached for a bottle of GOLD 3D paint that I squeezed and managed to dislodge the dried bit from the tip,followed by an air bubble that ejaculated a raindrop sized splodge onto the left side of my card! Moral of this story,"Don't Fiddle"
