1st A Vintage Journey the theme being texture
2nd Moo- Mania the theme being corrugated cardboard.
I started with a kraft card tag which I coloured using peacock feathers and squeezed lemonade reinkers allow to dry.I then used a couple of stencils although they don't show a lot using another stencil using versamark I then embossed with silver embossing powder and around the edge of tag.I then die cut the umbrella man in corrugate cardboard which I then embossed bits of it with silver and black embossing powder and put on tag.I then stamped words and attached to tag with bulldog clip and a ticket attached with staples. The fabric used is like hessian it is 47 years old and from Denmark it was my Mum who got it from my Mormor [ Mothers Mother- Nan in Danish ] when she died, I even have the receipt. We lost Mum recently and I have now got it.
