I used a new Tim Holtz "Ornate" (THS076) stencil in the corner. The Oxide colours I used for this tag are Vintage Photo, Broken China, and Iced Spruce. The splatters were created by applying ink to my craft mat, spritzing with water and then flicking it onto my paper. Don't you hate to cover up background you have created? Sometimes, I really try and put the least amount over top, just so I can still see my favourite parts of the paper.
How how yummy those inks are on the black!
I finished off my tag; made with Sizzix Tag &Bookplate die (656938) by adding ribbon, and Idea-ology Metallic Quotation Stickers (TH93559). Can't wait to try a different combination of colours!
Some of you have heard, mostly my wonderful Urban Scrapbook followers and customers, that I have retired from working at the store. It was a tough decision, it's a place that is full of creativity, laughter, the customers are all fantastic, and a joy to work at. I would have been there 12 years this spring! Boy, time flies! Working retail is a demanding job, I've been doing it for a verrrrrrry long time. It's the standing for 8 hours, sometimes as long as 12 that is really hard, and lucky me, I've inherited my mother's bad veins. So, this means I'm going to have more time to create, hopefully. I am still on Sizzix's Design Team, so I will be posting here and on their blog (I had a post yesterday). I was looking after Urban's blog and mine, which can be a little hard to juggle, so now I can post more here. Can you believe this, I've already posted two days in a row! I'm sure I'll be frequenting the store often, I need my fix of supplies and of course to see the Urban girls too!
I want to thank all of the Urban customers for their kind words, cards, gifts and well wishes too, it meant a lot to me! I hope you visit me here!
Thanks for stopping by,
