Happy Tiddly Tuesday!!! Oh did I have fun with this one!! This week's Tiddly Challenge is to incorporate a ticket into your creation or to create using a jumbo tag. I went with the latter. I simply ADORE tags and I used them frequently in my creations. I do for some reason, struggle when using them as the main component in lieu of a card base in a creation. I eventually figure it out but for some reason I stare at them on my desk for quite some time before I can get my mojo going!
This week I've used two Tiddly Inks images - Whoops and the Text Paper from the Steampunk Extra Goodies pack!
I colored Whoops in with my Copics and paper pieced her dress. I took a bit of sandpaper and distressed her dress a bit. I then set my main image aside while I worked on the elements of my tag. I covered the back of my tag with the Text paper. I then distressed it with Tim Holtz - Tea Dye Ink and a sponge.
I then went through my scrap bins mixing and matching pieces together and stitching everything in place. I used a paper doily cut with an MFT die, a large blingy flourish and a chipboard heart. For the heart, I coated it in rich red craft ink, thick embossing powder and heat set it. I simply ADORE the texture it adds!! I used some vintage cotton ribbon, an SU! jumbo rivet and some PTI aqua ribbon for the top of my tag.
As a last embellishment, I pulled out my chocolate Doodlebug glitter and spiced up her ice cream cone - both in her hand and in her hair!!
I do so hope you come join us a the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog this week!! I can't wait to see what you create!!
