This week at Shopping Our Stash, Donna is our hostess and she has chosen the theme Get Kraft-y!
This is the kraft-y tag I came up with:
I must say I did not like this tag during it's creation, and I even had a restless night one night imagining how I could dismantle it and use the pieces. In my dream, I tore the girls and I was upset, so I got up the next morning and followed through with the project.
- Ranger tag inked with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain DI
- The main visible layer is a piece of kraft paper inked using a Ranger gel plate and Picked Raspberry Distress Paint using a stencil that I made when I first got my Cricut Explore Air 2. I also inked this with Walnut Stain DI and distressed at the edges.
- The layer behind that layer is a piece of patterned paper from a DCWV succulent pad/kit.
- I stuck a few pieces of kraft and kraft-esque ephemera in there, including one of Tim's old adage tickets and a piece from a Crate Paper pack. There is also a wildflower from Tim's Wildflowers 2 pack that I had cut from kraft in the past. I "painted" it using DOx in Frayed Burlap and Picked Raspberry
- Tim's Paper Dolls are sitting atop a strip of scrap kraft.
- One of Tim's fluted stars was added with a touch of Ranger Mushroom alcohol ink and some Stickles in silver.
- Stickles in silver added to the shoes, too...
- The quote was cut from an old book and adhered with Distress Collage Medium in Vintage.
- The yarn is my fave-- and this particular strand is super-stashy: I used it last year to tie up a plant (a sunflower?) that was hanging into the lawn, then it lived on the fence all year until I cut it down and set it in my stash jar.
