Be True.

Hi Everyone.. Karen here with you again. Thank you so much for all your kind words and welcome on my first post. I have another tag to share with you again today.. I do most of my creating on tags, I think  like the challenge of working in such a small space.
 
I had an idea floating around in my head.. and this was the end result.
 
 
 
I've used three stamps this time,
 
Winged Pigs/Small 2 1/4 x 2 1/2
 
Italian Sonnet Background 4 1/2 x 3 3/4
 
Be True - Off new plate 949
 
Be True 3/4 x 1 1/2
 
I've stamped the Italian sonnet background all over the tag, then used distress ink around the edges as well as a bit of machine stitching. ( another thing you'll see I love to do!) The different elements in this one stamp make it a perfect background stamp.
 
 
Stamped and coloured the little winged pig, added some Distress Stickles to his wings and a little crown. - he just makes me smile!
 
 
To finish off I've added in a bit more of my idea-ology embellishment stash,  some flowers, a few bits  from my sewing box and used my labeller to add in some strips of random numbers. I've also used a bit of Miracle Tape on the back of my label maker strips, to help hold them down.
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting the blog today. Hope to see you all again very soon..
 
Happy Stamping - Karen
