Hi everyone, it was my turn to do a Friday Focus post over at Frilly and Funkie this week. I made a series of tags to promote our Friday Focus 15% product this week which is buttons. I don't know too many female crafters who don't love buttons. I certainly am partial to them and love purchasing unusual ones for the boutique. My recent purchases have ranged from bright and cute to vintage and grungy with girly and shabby in between. So I made a few tags for to showcase the variety that is now available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And I thought I would share them one at a time here on my personal blog.
Let's start with shabby and girly. For this tag, I fashioned a little garland using Venise lace and embellished it with these darling floral wooden buttons. I started with one of the jumbo manila tags sold in the boutique and stamped it using my all-time favorite Wendy Vecchi gingham background stamp from the Nature's Art set using Victorian Velvet DI. And of course the edges were all sponged with Vintage Photo DI. I broke out one of the new Wendy Vecchi archival inks - Potting Soil - to stamp the sentiments which are from A Form of Art set. The die cut was done from chipboard covered with Sticky Back Canvas using the Sewing Room die, then run through the Damask texture fade and sponged with Victorian Velvet DI. The skirt is made from one of the border doilies sold in the boutique, the waist band is coffee dyed Venise lace and the necklace is a corner filigree also sold in the boutique. Love that butterfly diecut with the tiny sewing spool body wrapped with burgundy burlap thread.
This tag was so much fun to create. I got a lot of pleasure working with all the girly elements. But I can't keep them all so I thought I would give it away. If you would like it, leave a comment and I'll do a drawing on Monday, August 12th and send it out to the random winner.
