Handwritten with Love



The new challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays has a bit of a twist this time.We are looking for something  Handmade, but we must see some Writing as well.  The DT decided to add handwriting  to our projects and we would love you to do this as well, but we have added some alternatives.
Hand writing  is something I realy avoid doing, but  we do like to get folk out of their comfort zones at TioT's.



I stamped up the quote I wanted to use[Art phrases stamp from Creative Expressions]. Had a practice copying the words  on scraps of card .  A  few went into the bin before I managed one that I would want to use.
The background of the tag  was random stamped, heat  embossed with  an un- named turquoise embossing powder There is a zig zag stencil across the bottom corner, rubbed over with turquoise glitter as it dried




All the colours and shading were distress inks, Victorian Velvet, Vintage Photo and a touch of Bundled sage.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are greatly appreciated.
