Thankyou tag

Post by lyndaejane on Tue 20 Sep 2016 - 18:33

An e-friend was sent a whole load of goodies after answering a craft questionnaire: quite a few things were duplicated, so she very kindly sent me the spare ones.  There were two sheets (about wrapping-paper sheet size) of collage paper; some paper flowers; some brads and a set of alphabet banners with ribbon to hang them with, all Graphic 45.  Was inspired by the backing tag behind the flowers, so made her a thankyou:



I distressed the edges of the tag, then went over with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Cut out a piece of the collage paper she'd sent, big enough to cover where the acetate bubble containing the flowers had been: did the edges with Walnut Stain as well. Added a postage stamp and a jewel and pearl flourish. Stamped one of the sayings from the set Karelyn sent me in a Secret Santa, distressed it and stuck it over where it said 'Graphic 45'. Stuck a set of the flowers over where it said 'Flowers' and added a piece of the ribbon that came with the banners.

On the back, I stuck some more collage paper over the printed bits and pieces, then stamped 'Thankyou' on a distressed piece of the same card as the front stamp - which doesn't actually look as different as the background behind it when you see it IRL.
