Be Brave - Fly

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for Um Wow Studio today. The year is almost over and I am happy to share one more post for 2017. I have made a tag:

This is what I did to the chipboard:

I love these chipboards because they are really sturdy and you can abuse them all you want ! 

I decided to go easy today and heat emboss it with 4 colours of embossing powders.

Here's what that looks like.

A little sparkle too ! 

The base of this tag is some pattern paper on which I glued some text paper and then inked the edges all around. I also did a little bit of rubber stamping, only around the edges. 

The child is a paper doll by Tim Holtz and I gave him a tiny little bit of colour. I also gave him butterfly wings. These are also from a set by Tim Holtz. Lastly I added some of the glittery Yellow embossing powder along some of the edges and then called the tag done ! 

I hope you got some inspiration from my post ! 

You'll find the 'Fly' chipboard HERE

Thank you for stopping by today and Happy new Year !

  4. A great (and perfect :o)) tag! Love that sweet image! All the best for a healthy, happy and creative 2018!!

  5. I love it! This is so inspirational for me as I want to get into mixed media! How did you glue down the paper? I love what you did with the chipboard... I’ve been using crayons and chalk writers to color the chipboard, never thought of embossing them! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Joyce, i just use a liquid white glue for sticking things down. It holds beteer in my experience than a taperunner or glue stick. Hope this helps. Corrie x
