Pick a challenge, any challenge!...
Three challenges just happened to coincide perfectly.
These tags are an answer to Arty Girlz challenge #3 that is calling for tags on our projects - only I made tags as my project... At the same time Technique Thursday was prompting us to use embossing powders, Inspire Me Thursday had birds as a challenge!
I combined the three, voila - bird tags with embossed backgrounds!
On the occasion of a newly hatching chick - a friend of mine is expecting - these are for her baby shower gift. As for the gift itself, I am contemplating making a mini-album slash journal for her first days with the new baby.
Technicalities: this is my absolutely second time around that I have done embossing. My previous attempt (seen here as the pink stamp on moo cards) produced a good quality image, this time I was trying to emboss card stock and that didn't go too well. I did it over a light bulb - I guess a heat gun would be mandatory if I was to become serious. So far I find the results nice, but nothing I could imagine becoming addicted to. My embossing powders came with my newly acquired stamps from ebay, they are from Stamp 'n Stuff, Print Art and Rubber Stampede.
Stamps are carved by me, and the hatched egg is decorated with bronze mini sequins and beads.
