All about words for Country View Crafts

Hello everyone, it’s that time again when a new challenge starts over at Country View Crafts and this month’s theme is ‘words’. As all ways there will be one winner picked at random who will receive a £20 voucher to spend in the shop.

Here’s what I created to get your muse thinking and of course there are loads more wonderful creations over on the blog! 

So I started with Distress Oxides smooched all over the Tag

I built up several layers of colour followed by spritzing with water, drying, more layers of colour 

Stamps I used were from Tim Holtz, I used them as word trees but of course they could also be used as sentiments

I punched 3 holes along the bottom and attached rivets to compliment the tag colours
I also mounted the tag onto sparkly card for more interest.

The sentiment is also from Tim Holtz.

To finish I added some string through each hole and tied it round a bunch of trims (I love the colours and different textures of these) and for the top I added some sari ribbon.

I hope we have inspired you to play along and cannot wait to see what you create
