Tag timePosted: August 4, 2012
Susan’s OLW challenge this week is to take inspiration from something on her Pure Inspiration board on Pinterest. I picked the line up of tags below as my inspiration then had to work out how to make it one layer.
To keep it one layer I punched a tag mask out of a post it note and sponged a base of Wheat Chalk ink inside the mask. All the stamps are from the Free Flight set except the tiny sentiment. I used the collage stamp to add background to each tag and then used the bird and butterfly as well as the lace edge and the postal part of the collage to be feature images.
Unfortunately when adding the last image to the last tag I smudged ink on the card base. Not wanting to start again I changed the size of the card and continued by adding a sentiment above the tags. It ended up crooked and really did not look good so I began again and ended up adding a tiny sentiment inside a tiny masked tag, then threaded the ribbon through a whole in the card base.
I was happy with my one layer card but didn’t want to waste the tags from my original attempt so I punched them out and made a layered card.
