Ages ago (it might only have been last week, but I can't remember, the weeks are just racing by at the moment and I have trouble remembering what I did yesterday let alone last week!) I said I wanted to play with kraft card and yellow and I ended up doing something completely different. Well the idea stuck with me and I needed to make it to get it out of the system if you know what I mean (do you or is it just me, it could be just me, I'm happy to accept that I might be a bit odd).
Started off with an 8x8 square of heavy kraft card and stencilled lovely Fresco Finish Pumpkin Soup and Haystack over the bingo mask in a couple of the corners bumping it a bit to get the shadow. Didn't cover it all just sort of haphazard and a bit shabby grungy!
Round the edge of the kraft card I did some sewing and added a scrap of calico and the seaside stamp from this PaperArtsy plate. Love the fishes and the shells on this plate, so added a few shells in a very green Stazon. Distressed the seaside words with a sanding block and some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
The kraft tag was rollered with gesso and a very faint stamping in pumice of a large damask stamp. The little house from PaperArtsy was painted in Beach Hut and South Pacific Fresco Finish and the edges given a good sand. A little red heart free hand drawn in red pencil.
Under the tag I put loads (loads might be a bit of an exaggeration, but lets say less than 10 but more than 2) of layers: a yellow tab cut from a Tim on the edge die, some corrugated card and a scrap of yellow dotty card edged in Mustard Seed Distress In.
On the top of the tag a strip of yellow felt given a scalloped edge with a Tim on the edge die and a strip of large yellow ric-rac. Little bit of stitching to anchor it down and add a bit more texture. And of course a yellow Prima flower.
I am pleased with it, it's what I sort of envisaged, fairly clean, minimal colours that were fresh and vibrant. The embellishments sit togethr nicely, there are different textures and shapes, so yep - it's a good 'un!
