Something a little different for me here. This tag is stamped onto Calico, using a mixture of Memento ink and Distress pens. I attached the calico tag onto a felt tag which I had cut out (with some difficulty, it kept getting smaller because it was hard to get it straight!) I wanted to create a layered effect I was so excited to use the Tim Holtz stamp for the first time. I got it at a recent Craft Fair along with a few other TH stamps that were greatly reduced as they had been used to create samples. Considering the fact that I am such an avid stamper, I don't actually have many stamps, due to the Mortgage Companies insistence that I pay them each month! so this was a hugely exciting afternoon for us. I also used an ATC sized Tim Holtz stamp to create the worn look to the tag and add further layer's of interest. I loved the idea that the tag had been around so long that it had got blotty and inky. This tag looked really sweet using some of my daughter and I's 'beach finds as a background. I love living so near the sea, there is always something to hunt for. Recently, my daughter and I have spent ages looking for pieces of sea glass, it is so exciting to find even the tiniest piece of rounded glass with the pitted surface. Most of these have taken at least 30 years to have become worn into that shape!
