Decided to treat myself to the metal bits (they were on sale) and glimmer mist colour kit as I have always fancied them but couldn't justify the cost but as it was my birthday (did I mention that?) I thought I deserved a special treat! Crafty Individual stamps came yesterday and I still haven't opened them yet! Did have a dinner party yesterday night though and nipped out into town in the day so I think I should be excused!
Here is a tag I have made this week though with the lovely new Tim Holtz stamps you can see in the box too - took me ages - the tag and stamping was done in about 10 mins but then I made a yellow flower (left to dry overnight) and it looked too garish, so then I made an aged mahogany flower (like the one used) which took another night, then I wasn't really sure whether I liked the look or not so I made a black one (thinking it would give a nice strong constrast) but it looked truly dreadful, so I reverted back to the aged mahogany one which I then managed to tear when squishing down so I had to make another one! Ho hum no wonder it takes me hours to make anything! Anyway am happy with it now - particularly the fluffy thread - I haven't used fluffy thread on a tag since it was in vogue about 6 years ago, lately I just use hemp (because its fab!) but I got the above fibres in my box of goodies from Craft Obsessions so I decided to use it (although I do already have a boxful hoarded from years ago too!).
