Forgotten Friday 47- It's a cover up!
Hi folks, it's Friday again, and I've been rummaging through my neglected stash again! This week, I've had a purpose, as I need to make a set of covers to hold some tags. I am taking part in a year long tag swap on the Chocolate Baroque Guild. I got involved in the swaps last year, but had to drop out due to other commitments, and just general stuff that happens. The theme this year is the Alphabet, so each month, we make two, or three tags, based on letters of the alphabet. Here are mine for January:
These are the tags that I have received back from Val and Kirsten:
So, I have started to make my covers. I decided to use a very neglected set of stamps to add some background detail to my front cover. Sadly, these are no longer for sale, but they are so useful. They belong to a big A4 sheet that was for ATCs, and was available from Graphicus.
I coloured my tag shape with Distress Inks, and stamped two alphabet sets with the same colours onto the tags. I was naughty, because I used a brand new mask on here, it just slipped in somehow ;) but it's such a brilliant one, and I'm going to use this one a lot. I then stamped 'Art for Art's sake' from the same ATC stamp set using Versafine onto the tag. I chose to use a lovely tree stamp from the 'Woodland Dreams' stamp set available from Chocolate Baroque to complete this cover. I don't use this set, so I feel that it qualifies today as a neglected item. I have so many stamps, I like the set, but it is slipping into a state of being forgotten.
Have a look through your stash and see if you can find something neglected, and make something with it. Add a comment to my post, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx
