Ribbling 2 (or crimping if your prefer!)

When I was trying to get yesterday's tag through the ribbler, I did a second one.  I also put this one through at an angle too; mainly because I had such trouble with the machine I had a gap in the middle and I thought the angled ribbles might disguise it!

I used Paperartsy stamps on a piece of white card which I coloured in the same inks as the ribbled tag - tumbled sage, wild honey and a little walnut stain round the edges - and stamped the dragonfly and sanctuary parts of the stamp on metal for accents.

The colours aren't very true as I had to try photographing it without flash to avoid the glare on the metal.

This is the result with flash!
This one is a little better, though I had to take it further away.

You have been busy again Helen, I don't seem to have any energy for craft today, maybe tomorrow. Love your tag, great colours and fab images, you must have so many stamps LOL. Tracy Evans x


Love this tag Helen - it is always difficult to photograph metal, but this looks great. Fabulous colouring and images too.
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Hi Helen

Stunning tag. It's amazin what fab results we get sometimes with a mistae, that ribbing at an angle really sets it off.
