Happy Belated Birthday Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog again this week, using a set called Belated Birthday. I am really having a lot of fun with this set at the moment and obviously I am having a lot of fun making tags as well!

I found this tag in my stash that I made sometime ago using an acetate stencil I made from an old SSS Sunshine die (which I believe is not available any more) and some texture paste that I had coloured with Distress Ink. The images are all coloured with Copics and then I fussy cut them out. I added some clear Wink of Stella (of course!) and some Glossy Accents to add some shine.

I love making tags and they are simple projects that I can put on my kid’s friends gifts.

I recently made this underwater shaker card for the Jane’s Doodle blog using the new Under the Sea stamp set. Lots of fun to make.

Hello Friend JD | Marion Vagg

Some of the underwater elements are adhered on top of the acetate and some are underneath the acetate, so that the sequins can move around in between.Hello Friend JD | Marion Vagg

Acetate flowers

Hello again,

I am still on holidays, so I have been in crafty heaven (hence the number of posts!)

I have another card to share with you after playing around with my Upsy Daisy die from Die-namics. This time using acetate. Yep – that flower is made from acetate! I coloured it with some pigment ink that I found at my local art shop – I would have used alcohol inks if I owned them, but I don’t, so I went looking for a substitute. I was surprised at the things I found that could be used to colour acetate.

The flower has 3 layers to it and I used my heat gun to shape the flowers to give them some dimension.

I am entering this into the Lilypads Flower Challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
