Tried something simple...... D

to try get my mojo back.  I feel right at this moment that my creativity has walked out the door.  I hate not knowing what to do next, what style, what project.  So I sat at my table with a blank tag.  I covered the back with distress inks.  

Out came one of my stamp boxes - there are so many I have not used yet.  I grabbed the 'I'm so special' set by Katzelkraft.  I used the background stamp obviously for the background lol.  I then stamped and embossed Mr Special himself.  I love him.... just so special!  

I then used mica fragments down the side and frantage copper to the left.  I then triple embossed the entire tag to give it a really top shine.  I attached a ribbon with a stapler.  That was it.  Simple and a little satisfying that I achieved something.



Well how simple was that lol.  Instant gratification! well almost instant.

Thanks for dropping by and please please call again.
