A month of Favorites

Over at JFF a new monthly theme chosen by Neet and she is focusing on Favorites. Whoop Whoop love this theme. This week it is using a favourite stamp great I thought but as Neet said there so many favorites LOL. Anyway the stamp I used is my all time favorite. I used a tag which I cut out of water colour paper as I wanted to paint the background and this paper does not curl like painted card. For the background it is a combination of painted card (lilac)and painted fusible (bondaweb) which I painted in 2 different colours (black and pink). It is then ironed onto the tag along with pieces of sequin waste,organza and paper. I gave it a blast with the heat gun to create a few holes and a distressed look. I stamped my favorite stamp onto the card masked her and stamped musical notes over the whole thing. I re stamped my little fairy girl and gave her a wash in pink and a sparkle glaze. She is then glued over the original image to create a shadow effect (sort off) with the addition of a red heart (well it is my favorite stamp) and pieces of winged background paper she was done. I did enjoy making that tag. Enjoy the weekend even if it is wet and be careful with the fireworks. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Sandra XX

Thought I was never going to get a comment on here - four attempts and Chrome could not attach to Blogger - phew! Finally made it and I so wanted to comment on this tag.
You say you had fun creating it, well I had fun reading it. So many things you did fascinated me and I kept going back to the tag to look for the different bits. I absolutely bloomin' well love it!
Am feeling grotty with a cold and sore throat (lost my voice too) so reading and seeing this was a real tonic. Thanks for stopping by and joining in with us at JFF. Hugs, Neet x
