It's Wednesday! Time again for a snoop courtesy of WOYWW.
The detailed instruction book will be on display at Head Office,
over at the Snoop HQ, Stamping Ground, alias Julia's Blog.
So here's some of the action in my crafty place ...
First a good recycling tip...If you buy wrapping paper from IKEA, save the inner roll of brown card as it can be really useful for crafting. I stuck together two layers to make a heavier weight card which, when dry, was perfect to make manilla style tags of any size. I managed to cut 12 out of one inner roll of card.
They are still supple enough to be crumpled and take various inks well.
After our trip to Stitches at the NEC (see previous post) I was inspired to make this tag, using one of my recycled tags, and spend some time experimenting.
The face is stamped onto Mica so it was hard to photograph, due to the sheen, but I think the finished effect can still be seen reasonably well.
Below is a make and take I did at the show and I really like the effect on the bird.
We stuck double sided sticky sheet onto mount board (leaving the other side of the non stick backing on) then die cut the bird. The non stick backing was removed and copper foil was rubbed very roughly and somewhat streakily onto the sticky surface. Embossing powder was sprinkled onto the remaining sticky areas then heat set giving a lovely texture.
Not too messy on my desk after my crafty session
I'm off down to the South Coast, all on my lonesome, next week to see the Brighton Belles and as I'm taking the cheap option and travelling by coach I won't be around to post for WOYWW. Have fun and be good but be warned I'll still be spying on you all!
