Hello everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Taggers, this week it's to have a go at making your own wrapping paper, create a matching gift tag and card. A first for me, never made my own wrapping paper before but have to say i really enjoyed it and shall definately be doing this again :)
So for my wrapping paper and gift tag i took a plain sheet of paper and with an 'Antique Linen' distress ink pad i wiped the pad directly onto the paper, it covered really well, no streaks. I then stamped a circle, inside the circle stamped the super cute owl, freebie in this months Craft Stamper, with a rose coloured Papermania ink. I added the sentiment 'you're a hoot' which is by Stampendous. I repeated this process for the tag and added the 'Just for You' circle sentiment which was a freebie in the last issue of Creativity and finished with a little ribbon.
For my card i used the freebie owl again, coloured with the Distress ink, papers are Doodlebug and my own background, added Papermania flowers and to the centre i added the lovely handmade flowers i recieved from Julie, the diecut leaves were in a RAK from my friend Tara :)
This week we have a fabulous tutorial, something we plan to do on a regular basis, by Michelle showing you how to create a gorgeous background using pigment inks and mica powder...such a pretty effect !
