It's 'Handmade' at Try it on Tuesday


Handmade is the theme at TioT this fortnight and we would like to see some handwriting, script or sentiment, and the DT have challenged themselves to use 'handwriting'
I decided on a tag,  I used Kaisercraft 'Perfume' stamp, masked off the label and then built up the background, first with inks, spritzed with water and then I actually used 3 different stencils, which don't really show. My butterflies are an Inkylicious stamp, the top one having 2 layers for dimension.  My large rose was made a while ago when I first got the TH Tattered Floral die, I think I got a bit carried away and it's rather large, too large for a card, but gives impact and takes the eye away from my 'handwriting'.  Isn't it strange, we don't think about our handwriting normally, but for this tag - to be on show - well I did struggle and I don't even think it looks like mine!
I hope you will join us for this challenge and my teamies have some very varied interpretations of 'handmade' with handwriting for you, so please pop over to the main blog to take a look.
I am entering this at :
  Butterfly Challenge - Butterflies and Flowers
That's it for now,

It's a beautiful tag Avril and your rose is gorgeous too. I wouldn't like to have to put my handwriting on show - it has gone to the dogs thru the years I'm afraid. Nicola x

So glad you fluttered by. That rose looks so good on the tag. Funny how the effect would look too big on a card but just perfect here. I love the colour too. Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).
