Good Day Sir!

Good afternoon and welcome to my second post of the day. It's time for a fun new challenge over at Lost Coast Designs, and from now until the end of the month the theme will be 'More Than 2 Legs' Here's my leggy tag.

 I started by stamping and embossing Lost Coast Designs Loopy Caligraphy and clear embossing.

 Now you know when people say 'there are no mistakes just happy accidents' I alway think 'really - you should see my bin and tell me what's happy about that', but today, I really did have a happy accident. The idea was to iron over the top of the embossing with some paper to remove the embossing powder, but this happened. Some of the paper stuck to the tag. 
After behaving like Kevin the Teenager for about 20 seconds I thought that I would just carry on anyway and see how it ended up.

So I inked up the tag with Distress Inks, and decided that I really liked the extra grungy bits. 

 Then I stamped up my Miscellaneous Anthropomorphs.

To make them stand out a bit more I edged around them with white pen, then coated the tag with 3 layers of clear embossing powder. I decided that they looked like English gentleman at their club, so added the printed sentiment.

I hope that you pop across to the Portal, where you'll see lots more inspiration, and you can join in yourself for the chance to win Lost Coast $'s.

Have a very happy day, and thanks very much for looking x

  3. Your background looks fab Sue, a fab technique leaving a real effective display. I would have ripped my tag to pieces trying to peel that paper off. Your images really do look like very dapper English Gents!!
