Hi All. Wet, windy and dark here today so it is h-----k and crafting for me. Hope your day goes well and thank you for visiting here and your lovely comments.
At Our Creative Corner they are asking for handmade flowers and dyed ribbon. It just so happens that Astrid has recently done a series of tutorials on these very subjects and I have taken inspiration from some of her ideas.
I stamped out the flowers in Distressed ink then folded and scrunch them before putting them into water for a little while. I then left them to dry natural before opening them up and sticking them together. Then I dabbed the edges of the peatls with the same Distressed ink-aged mahogany
The ribbon was dyed with the same ink and scrunched and squeezed out in water, then left to dry naturally.
I don't know who makes these stamps as I swapped them with a friend years ago-they were already cut out as they are now.
At Moo Mania and More the subject this time is buttons. It is great to learn the German word for the subjects as it is in both languages. No Moos on mine this time but that's ok 'cause you don't have to include a moo-just follow the theme
This is my effort with buttons from my collection. The tag holder is blobbed with Distressed Stain on parchment and the tag is using the same stains but on white card that I embossed. I guess this would fit the above challenge as well as I did some dyed ribbon using the Distressed stains.
Have a good day
Love Chrissie xx
