Hi folks, it's Friday again, phew! Where did the week go? It's time to rummage through your crafty stash and see what you have lurking there that is neglected or unused. I am cheating slightly this week, as I had a 'craft related incident', and cut my finger on a Nestability on Wednesday, which is making crafting very difficult at the moment. So I am showing you something that I have made already that used neglected items.
Regular followers will know that I make tags for the Chocolate Baroque Alphatag Swap each month, although I don't always blog them. This month, a couple of my tags used very unused items, so I feel that I can show you those tags for my Forgotten Friday post. The first tag is 'M' for Music:
I embossed the tag using a Music embossing folder and an embossing diffuser, to give me a blank area in the centre for stamping. I stamped the musical instrument using Black Archival ink. I then coloured a piece of mountboard with red Distress Ink and stamped the musical heart, before cutting it out. I triple embossed this with thick WOW clear embossing powder. I love the shine that this embossing powder gives, it's the best one that I've found. I added some Sizzix leaves and black ribbon to finish.
My second tag is 'N' for Nature:
It's been lovely to get some of these older stamp sets out, give them an airing again, and to give the embossing diffuser a try out. Why don't you have a rummage through your crafty stash, find something that you haven't used for a while, and make something? If you leave a comment, I'll pop along to your blog to take a look.
I'd like to say hello to all of my new followers, thank you so much for joining me, you are very welcome.
I'm off to visit my parents today, so I'd better get a wriggle on packing the car now, thanks for stopping by, xx
