TH#5 - May Tag
So what did I have this time? Ummmm well I did have a manilla tag, although having the die now I could easily have cut my own! No appropriate stamps so didn't bother with the tissue BUT did remember a printed vellum pack I bought some time ago and as luck would have it, pattern pieces and dress forms - excellent!
Just bought some printed measure twill tape - that will do nicely and I even got the sewing machine out to sew it on! Old white plastic cotton reel duly cut in half in husband's workshop with BIG saw!!! Now that was FUN! Tried to cover the plastic with ink and embossing powder but fortunately the string does most of the job nicely.
Used some flowers left over from my wedding (all those years ago!) inked with the Spring colours and just dunked in ordinary embossing powder as neither have UTEE nor melting pot!
Made the coat hanger out of a brass paper clip and the dangly from a fragment and more of the vellum. The round stamp is all I had round and again had to stamp and emboss as I only have black archival.
Think the lady who appears behind the flowers is quite cool, complete fluke though, who'd have guessed?
