IAAS - Add a tag or charm
Hello again - I'm back after a very unsettling house move. The removal men were pleasant enough but their common sense was almost non-existent. After a great deal of help I'm eventually sorted and my craft room is once again in working order.
This theme over at International Art and Soul is 'Add a tag or charm' and as you can see I've added a wooden tag from Docrafts. I used a Sakura gelly roll pen to write 'Lest we forget' on the tag and then I had to think about the rest of the design, My mojo is not at its best but this is the first card I've made for months so I think it's making a comeback. I've had the poppy napkin for ages and used it once for a card a few years ago so I knew it would work for this one. I chose the section on the napkin that I needed and carefully cut round it before sticking to the white paper. I set the white paper against bright red card from Papermill as the mat, which I thought looked good against the Craft UK ivory card blank. Once the napkin had dried I set the tag in the top right corner and added a red ribbon to it. Three red Mei Flower gems were added to the top left and bottom right corners. Then I went to bed!
The following day I looked at it again and decided it needed more so I typed up the two verses. I printed them in grey so that they weren't too stark and then tore around the edges. I used a grey Promarker to edge them and set them in place.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
