Anything Goes - Crafty Boots

This fortnight for Crafty Boots, Faye has set us the challenge of 'Anything goes'

Gabrielle and I decided to set ourselves a challenge and work with similar resources to produce Stephanie-Emma a 'thank you' for arranging the Crafty Boots Design Team crafty day.  The 'must haves' were a kraft tag, Fresco Finish paint, Bingo mask and Wendy's thank you stamp.

Gabrielle was kind enough to invite me to stay with her for the weekend around the DT day so I not only got to rummage through her stash but also to play in her fabulous studio and share some of her things. Thanks, Gabrielle!

 I used claret fresco paint for the base and snowflake for the stencilling.
Borrowed the butterfly stamp (also Wendy's) coloured victorian velvet distress ink on white card scrap, and the main image (Paperartsy) is on kraft card but painted nougat fresco.

I raided Gabrielle's (huuuuuuge) ribbon box for the ribbon.

Loved this tag when you made and and still love it now! Fabulous! Glad to have shared the time with you (you are sorely missed) and stop telling people about my ribbon stash... they'll all want some ;) !!!

Lovely tag and what a fantastic idea to send it to Stephanie-Emma.

I need to spend more time with you and the girls so you can share more of your design secrets.

Ribbon stash ... lol she kept that quiet. Helen I love the contrast of the deep claret tones against the snowflake stencilling, looks great.x
