Try It On Tuesday – My Favourite things!!

Ooh how to choose? Yes it’s a very open challenge this fortnight at Try It on Tuesday because we want your project to feature your favourite things – whether that be a product, an image, a technique or a medium. Don’t forget to tell us what your favourite thing is and why!!


Well I dithered a bit, because to get all my favourite things on one project it would be the size of a large canvas. However, being sensible, for my favourite things I chose Lynn Perella Stamps, Distress inks, my favourite script background stamp, a stencil and a tag. Oh, and some mica powders but that was a bit of an accident because I forgot I had put them in the spritzer. Made it sparkly though!! Here it is after I’d finished inking, stencilling and stamping.


However I decided it needed MORE even though it was a small tag. So I stamped the word ‘dream’ which is from my favourite and seemingly everlasting set of self inking stamps from 7 gypsies. Truly I must have had these for about 10 years!! I added some black hemp twine as I love twine, even more than ribbon. I had to get in some embossing, so I triple embossed a wooden heart and then stamped into it with my favourite swirly stamp. I had to have a flower, so made a diddy one from scraps and tucked behind the heart. Found a metal embellie and added to her hat. And just because I can I added a little distress stickles. Some funky fibres and voila the finished tag. Hope you like.





For more DT inspiration and to link up your own project hop on over to the Try It On Tuesday blog.

See you there!!
