I have to say I really enjoyed making this at least I did up to the point where I decided to use my new (Port Sunlight treasure) Stampendous Frantage embossing powder. It gives an amazing effect but Oh My!... the mess I made!
The glitter in it is so fine that it seems to stick to everything! How do I know this? Well, me thinking I would be clever sprinkled some without using an embossing pad and just heated from underneath - fine until the tag suddenly jumped and flicked some powder on to my uncovered dining table - oh it did look pretty!I can still see tiny bits of glitter in certain lights!
Any way, this is my contribution to Hels' Sunday Stamper Challenge.
So, as well as aforementioned powder I used an old Sarah's glossy tag(an old QVC purchase) and tried an experiment with Tim's new summer colours distress inks(gorgeous) - I pressed pads onto mat, spritzed, dipped the tag,lifted it out flipped it over and left the puddles to dry. Then I got to try out my new distress markers on an old Elusive Images rose - I'd read how good they were but I was still absolutely gob smacked as to how good they are(will post later)
The crown - a Tim mask, a bit of bling and sakura pen, beads ribbon and I was done! Then the tidying - I craft on my dining table so it had to be done - which took aaaaages! Note to self - put newspaper down first next time I use that lovely embossing powder!
That's all for now off to town. Thanks for looking,Chris
