Baby Tags

Well, long time no see!!  Yes, I'm still here.  Just don't get to the computer very often.  My back, shoulders and neck just ache from carrying my son around, lifting of the wheelchair, and all the work that goes with having a six year old with a broken leg.  Poor kid.  He's in a proper cast and we're counting the days/weeks till it can come off.  Full-time carers (and part-time carers too) that do this all the time, you have my total admiration xx

I have been able to make a few projects, usually ones involving crochet or hand-stitching so I can sink into the couch and rest my aching body!  With a hot cuppa near by.  But of course, all these little gifts I'm making require packaging and presentation..... So I've started making a few little tags for my baby crochet beanies!

I've used my favourite baby stamp set .... Baby We've Grown, using the gorgeous little bunny image and sweet baby as the sentiment.  It's SO CUTE!!

I've stamped the images in Black and used my watercolour pencils to colour, and then washed over with my Aqua Painters, very lightly.  I love watercolour pencils, just a little bit of water and no pencil lines!!

I have then used my Scallop Tag punch to make the little tags, also rounding off the edges to make it look sweet.  Looking at them again, they're so cute!!

So here's what I used:
Stamps: Baby, We've Grown
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Crumb Cake CS
Accessories: Scallop Tag Punch, Aqua Painters, Whisper White Bakers Twine & Project Life corner punch & Watercolour pencils.
