Today I have a post about the tag I used scraps to add the background. I started with the gelli printed tag background that I created ages ago.
Then one day I was stamp sorting, and it led to me snipping off a small amount of the packaging to put them into new folders.
They looked so pretty all together so I decided to use them and add them to the tag.
Next to add the focal image. I chose a Hot Air Balloon stamp from an old magazine set.
I stamped the image onto patterned paper and added some shading using watercolour pencils. I added the sentiment stamped with oxide ink. After fussy cutting it out I layered it onto some tissue paper scraps.
Then embellished with buttons I threaded with bakers twine, and then added the fabric scrap as a ribbon to finish off.
Love how this came out and how it evolved from the pile of scraps
