Another Tag

This one is for Carrie - I had planned to do more stitching on it, as that's her 'thing' (check out her amazing blog here) but as I can't sew straight, I think there's enough, lol. I drew on the letters and then cut round them with a knife, then mounted the tag on some patterned card. The colour was applied with Distress inks, and then I added some stamping using clear ep and transfer foil - you have to be quick to slap the foil on whilst the ep is still melted,  and it's a bit hot, but I love the effect. A few pieces of paper and metal and a bit of scribble nearly finished it off, and then I remembered the stitching - so I made a small atc and sewed it on (badly!) Hope you like it, Carrie xx
