Living it…

Happy Halloween everyone! I would like to wish a spooky happy evening by my favourite colours. At Stampotique designers challenge Nellie is asking us to use colours that we turn to when we are stuck. So Nellie here are mines, they are rusty, metallic and black.

I used a rusty tissue paper on a kraft tag, applied it with stitches, I added a piece of canvas as well. I distressed the edges with brushed corduroy.

I added some background stamping with France Papillon’s splattered mug and espresso truffle. I used Carol’s collection Polka dot swirl with metallic embossing powder to add more background texture.

Living it” from Barcodetext 1 and Tinglyitchiness was stamped on paper colorised with antique linen. I added some threads under them. And on the top some ropes.

Hope you are “living it” tonight like Mr. Tinglyitchiness.

    I love the textured background that you created for your tag. It’s the perfect background for Tinglyitchiness. He looks very comfortable there and not at all itchy!
