Today on Nichole Heady's blog is a different challenge in honor of Papertrey Ink's 6th Anniversary: a boutique accessory challenge to make something to adorn your person. This is certainly a challenge for me...in fact I considered sitting this one out. Still we don't grow unless we push ourselves, right? So I pushed myself. Actually the hardest part of my project was locating a needle after recently going through a large reorganization of my studio.
I decided to decorate a tag to place the hair ties upon for presentation or gifting. I used aqua, red and black inks to stamp images from Delightful Doilies. The tag ended up too busy so I added a layer of vellum that I attached with a piece of ribbon and tiny attacher. Before I attached the vellum I added an edge of gold with a gold leafing pen.
It is pretty elementary, but I am happy I attempted this challenge. I hope your day was a delightful one!
Thank you so much for visiting.
