RSS No. 17


Hoping this challenge will not be Ready Steady Stamp's swansong as I really enjoy RSS. So, here is my entry although I had to think about the 'ingredients' for days before I came up with anything.



I cut a tag from cream cardstock and stamped some green leaves around the edges (well actually, I think they are ears of corn but they look like leaves when stamped like this!) Next I stamped the numbers in pink and then stamped 'Papillons' across the tag in two places in a sepia tone. I also used a scrolly stamp which I think looks a bit like a butterfly. Then I stamped the main image twice, coloured them using the inks previously used and layered one on top of the other using small blobs of silicon glue to help raise the wings. I made some antennae from wire and fixed these under the top layer.


I mounted the tag on some pink corrugated card and then onto another layer of brown Bazzil that I spritzed with Cosmic Shimmers to give it a pinky iridescent effect. An eyelet was bashed into the top of the tag and I threaded some organza ribbons through which I heated with my heat gun to make them go curly.
Lastly I added some pink glitter to the butterly wings. (but of course, this is not visble in these photo's, as bloody usual!)


Nearly forgot to mention the stamps which were Crafty Individuals - leaves, PaperArtsy - numbers and Butterfly, Katzelkraft- scroll and lovely French words and phrases (designed by Isabelle Norris)
Hope you like my effort.

Must to get back to my craft room now as I am halfway through making forty wedding invitations for my cousin and she wants to post them soon.


Enjoy the remainder of the weekend and thanks for looking.

Edit:Have also realised that this creation fits the bill at Tuesday Taggers where the current theme is BUGS and there is a prize of £15 from the Craft Barn .
