Yvonne's Free Range Project!

Good Morning Sploders,

How are you all today? Yesterday Tom, myself and Holly took ourselves to Ikea to buy some fittings for the Ross PaperCraft Show a week on Sunday and it took over 2 hours to get home instead of 45 minutes! Every single road was blocked because of roadworks. We are very excited about the show so I hope you will be there if you live close by.

This week  the DT team have also been receiving their packages ready for the next show and I think it is safe to say they are as excited as I am about them.

Today we are showcasing Yvonne's Free Range Project. Yvonne has made a beautiful tag...

"Using a Manilla tag I put Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and 
Barn Door onto my SplodgeAway Mat and sprayed it with water - picking up the ink with
 the tag.  Then I sprayed with water and left to dry naturally.

Once dry I stamped the diamond argyle pattern with Spiced Marmalade - I held the 
stamp in my hand, not using a block.

With Walnut Stain Distress ink I inked through the Country Cottage Stenscape mask 
the small flower border at the bottom of the tag.

Then, using the Butterfly Creator mask, I spread iridescent paste (which I'd mixed
 with Spiced marmalade DI, through the top two butterflies.  Once they were dry I 
sponged through the markings section of the butterfly creator with Walnut Stain
 DI (this looks very subtle!).

A few gems, words and seam binding finished it off"

Regards Yvonne xxx 
Thank you Yvonne for a stunning project,

See you all tomorrow
