So Aloof At FSC

Made another inspirational tag for Fashionable Stamping Challenges seeings as how the last one was a joint effort and not really all my own work.

This tag came about because I had a play day yesterday with Pat and I was showing her how to use the melting pot.

I first cut out the beautiful image and Mod Podged her onto a chip board tag which I cut out with the Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplates Die. No Gessoing or painting I left everything plain. Then came the fun bit, melted clear UTE with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Black UTE then poured and swirled over the edge of the image. Whilst still molten I stamped into it with a Melt Art Textured Tread – Scattered Leaves. All I can say is wow they really work. Such a deep impression my only regret is that I only bought one of the Textured Treads. Didn’t really know how good they were so one was my limit in case I didn’t like them. How wrong can a gal get!!! Hand stitched along her bonnet and added a few of my fave French knots.

    Hi Shirley…I haven’t heard of texture threads, so I will have to check it out! This looks fabulous! Love the UTEE effect, it adds so much depth and so glad you and Pat had a great time with the melt pot.
