Here's a tag I made for Maureen. She's had it since the end of November when I paid her a quick visit but I only let her open it earlier this week!
This was my first attempt at making the flowers from grungepaper and I am real pleased with my little self that I actually managed it!
The idea for the tag came from a Graphicus newsletter - sadly Graphicus has gone into liquidation in the last week but Glenda is hoping to start up again in some way in the New Year. She's far too talented to give up creating and I hope she and her staff can put aside the money worries over Christmas and begin again in the New Year.
Back to the tag. The rosette was made from script paper which I rubbed over some Distress Ink. I secured it with a pearl brad. The chipboard flourish is by Maya Road and I liberally added the glitter (not just to the chipboard either - the work table looked VERY festive by the time I'd finished!). The background paper is by papermania and I silver embossed the edges. The acrylic tag came from Glenda's company Elusive Images and I used a Crafty Individuals snowflake stamp embossing in silver. The grungepaper flower was painted in acrylic paint, stamped with the co-ordinating stamp to the background paper and covered with some glossy accents and a wee bit of sparkle. I just added a few glossy punched out snowflakes and some white organza sparkle ribbon to finish. This is one of a couple I made this year - will post another very soon!
OH and I were supposed to be cooking Christmas Dinner for 58 people at the Club today. Got up at 7am this morning to be greeted by 2 feet of snow and no chance at all of even getting the car off the drive never mind down the lane. We're an hour away from the club on a good day - So Christmas Party cancelled. Snow has finally stopped falling about an hour ago so we've just had to settle ourselves indoors for the duration! Happy Saturday!
