Just For Fun.


Last night I had the urge to get inky when I should have been thinking about getting some beauty sleep...since I had to get up early next morning!
Does this happen to you?

I was trying really hard...erm..'cough' to tidy up my desk when I came across a manila tag that had been sitting there for a couple of weeks. It had one strip of tissue tape on it.
I decided it was time to add a bit of this and that and this is the end result.

I started by applying distress stains in Barn Door,Vintage Photo and Spun Sugar.
Added more strips of tissue tape. A left over thin strip of music pattern paper was coloured with Antique Linen distress stain, cut into three and added to tag.
Vintage paper image of Lady completes the tag.
Edged tag in Walnut Stain ink
It turned out better than I was it and had fun along the way.


  1. This is beautiful Shirl... love the tissue tape and gorgeous image too... funny how creating sometimes wins over more sleeping hours :))
