Inspiration Tag

Hello friends
Hope you are all good
Wow...... this month has just flown by......
Whoohoo its nearly March.....
soooo looking forward to the Spring!
A quickie post from me today to share this tag hanging
Over at the lovely Inspiration Emporium store,
 their monthly theme is "Show it with words"
you could win $50 Emporium dollars to spend in their why not give it a try
 Here's what I created.......
I took some old cardboard packaging and using a palette knife, I spread lots of embossing paste
very randomly, then when dry I gave it a good splatter with distress paints.
I inked up the tag with distress inks, then used the distress spritzer with a layering stencil.
I added some stitching and repeated the splattering of paint over the tag.
I stamped the feather with Archival ink and replaced some of the text using some words from the Idea-ology Chit chat book, which a I sewed into place using my sewing machine
 ( and yes... a steady hand was needed!!)
Swoon....That beautiful feather stamp,
has to be one of my favourite stamps at the moment,
 I just love it!
As always feel free to leave a comment......I appreciate each and every one!
Have a great week
Best Wishes
