Tag measures 7 X 9 inches
Christmas is over for another year, and I do hope you all had a wonderful time with loved ones. Now, New Years is just around the corner....
Today, I want to show you a vintage, oval tag I created for Cheery Lynn Designs. This oval shaped tag could easily be transformed into a photo/memory booklet, or made to hang on a wall, showing off precious photographs.
The base for the tag was cut from the XL-8 Oval Scalloped Stacker Series, and my actual photograph was cut from the L-7 Classic Oval Silver Series, and then framed in the most intricately beautiful, DL136 Japanese Garden Lace Oval Frame. The largest backing piece was embossed using the PS107 Stitcher Plate, then lightly sanded for that distressed look, using Core-dinations cardstock.
To decorate, I used the inside greenery from the Japanese Garden Lace Oval Frame, and teamed it with the B147 OliveBranches. The Olive Branches were cut into various sizes and weaved in and amongst the roses, and upwards to frame the photograph.
I formed three B155 Large Roses, curling the petals up tightly and adhering for the centre and then built the petals little by little around the centre of the rose. Some of the petals were curled inwards, and others outwards. There are certainly ‘many’ ways to create roses, from these beautiful dies, and of course are available in three various sizes.
To complete the tag, I used Creative Inspirations paint to highlight different areas, especially the roses, as well as Tim Holtz distress inks on edges. Prima porcelain roses and pearls were adhered, and some of my vintage guipure lace and silk ribbon which I hand-dyed in variegated colours to match, were used to complete my project.
Mike has completed a great video, do check it out on the Cheery Lynn Designs Website – “Detailed Dies Cutting Workshop”, well worth viewing, especially when dealing with the beautiful and intricate detail of the dies available through Cheery Lynn Designs... And do not forget this weeks challenge also, which can be found by clicking “here” – the theme this week is ‘Celebrate’. Just remember, you can create anything you wish, but you have to use at least one Cheery Lynn Designs die in your creation, though more is welcomed for your chance to win a $20 voucher, and Mo's Digital Pencil also has some great prizes for several winners!
I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Years, may 2012 bring much joy, lots of laughter, and good health to all... till next year ...
