I won’t bore you with the mess on my desk, but here is Tag three:
Again, I didnt;t have all the stuff but managed one that looks pretty much like the sample.
I didn’t have the right tree stamp, so used the Stampotique one. The branch is really too thin, but it more or less works.
The little tickets are Miss Cutie Pie again. I really like them but it was tough to find on of the right orientation. I used two for more weight. No tinsel, so I used a bit of ric rak with some gathered ribbon behind, for the dimension. I always ass a bead to the end of stick pins – although the colours are red and green, not sure blood would be a welcome addition to the design! The flower is tissue paper sort of pinched and stuck around the edge of a circle, with some strips scrunched across the middle. The big bead is Basic Grey. No bird, so I just googled “bird silhouettes” and picked one, printed it and cut it out of music sheet paper stuck to heavy cardstock. I cut the wing to sort of the right shape and stuck it on. None of that green stuff, so I tied a little bundle of yarn, frayed out the ends, and stuck that on. No spatter stamp, so this one is actually an old scenic stamp of little flowers (although they are very indistinct so you can’t really tell that from looking at them.
I do like that tree stamp so it may make it on to a shopping list at some point. I like this one better than yesterdays!
Nw, I have to prepare for a crop tomorrow and get ready to go to Reading to see DD in a performance at the Town Hall! Where does the time go?
