Ultra Thick Tag

Hello everyone,

Poor Jennie, she is in a lot of pain bless her, so I thought I would cheer her up and send her a little tag I made using lots of yummy stash from The Artistic Stamper.

I am blogging this tag here cos Jennie can't really type much at the moment, so I am being her faithful assistant :O)) LOL

I started by using a large chipboard tag and covering it in papers by Crafty Individuals from their Springtime pad. I used an emery board and really went to town on the distressing around the edge of the tag as I wanted it to look really old and distressed.

I next used three pieces of stampboard, which I coloured using pink ink and then stamped images from the Garden Plate onto the Stampbord using Blue Archival ink. I waited until the ink had dried and then covered each piece of Stampbord with three layers of clear UTEE. Wow, the UTEE from The Artistic Stamper is the best I have ever used.....yes, I know you all think I would say that anyway, but being completely honest, it truly is fab to use. Basically, it is a fine powder but not too fine that it doesn't give a thick enough layer and it melts really quickly and evenly too.

I added gold edging to the squares using a Krylon pen, added a few of the Prima flowers from their new range and finally printed off a little word that says Friendship - you can't really see it with my rubbish photography though - and I popped Glossy Accents all over the top of this to match it in with the glossy finish of the UTEE.

I just wanted to tell you all that Jennie is having a special 25% off offer on The Artistic Stamper website - on orders over £25, you will receive 25% off - yes, that is, you can do the maths!! Click HERE and grab yourself a few bargains, Jennie has loads of Grungeboard and Tim's Elements in stock as well as the new Stitchels Flower & Snowmen ranges and even more fabby stamps, Chipboard, inkpads, papers and embellies for you to treat yourself to!

Get well soon Jen, we are all thinking about you and wishing you well...and don't over do it!!!

Thanks for looking

Hels xx
