All that Jazzzzzzzzz-D

Hello everyone

I had a good day today. I went shopping with Paula to a craft shop in Farnborough and spent money then when I got home I was straight on the internet spending more on craft items.  I need to get back to work to stop spending except I don't want to be there lol.  The funny thing is for the project I am about to mumble on about, I used stuff I already had and not the new.
I made a tag for a birthday as we always need them in reserve and I do have a few birthdays this month.  Another reason for making this is a fellow crafter, Chana who is also one of my design team for Eclectic Ellapu has started her own challenge blog - Nicely Done Designs and the challenge this week is to include the folowing in a project so I thought I would give it a go and mention her new blog. 




Kraft Paper

Rubber Stamp

I used chipboard for the tag, painted stamped and clear embossed using music stamp.  I then stamped musical instruments over the top (not that you can see all that much of it lol)

I used distress ink over the tag.  I printed a couple of Jazz pics and mounted them on Kraft card.  I added text to the Jazz player.  I stamped the music over another piece of kraft card and then clear embossed a pianist from the same stamp set.  I fixed the images to the tag using a brad I covered in glamour dust and two photo clips from my stash.

I stamped some ordinary seam binding using musical clef and notes and used distress ink on top.  I wound the binding round the tag and then through the eyelets for the tag hanger.

I do hope you like this project.  It feels to me like a clean and simple project as not as fussy as my usual work. 

Anyway thats it for today
