Anyhoo, I did realise that I haven't shared with you the card I made for my nephew's Christening
The background paper is TH which I distressed, adding some torn and distressed music paper, an inked piece of grungboard flourish and printed a photo onto fabric using freezer paper.
It is not as difficult as I thought:
- cut your fabric and freezer paper to size
- iron the freezer paper, waxy side up, onto the fabric
- run it through your printer.
- To ensure the ink sets I then iron the fabric with a piece of brown paper over the top to heat set
This is a tag I made using a technique from the 101 Creative Chemistry. I covered the tag in distress stains, over stamped with archival ink then splattered water over to distress slightly.
I stamped the bird, colouring with DI, adding a small amount of glossy accents for the eye, cut it out and mounted the bird on the tag. I then added small amounts of gold foil around the edges.
I have a stinking cold and chest infection at the moment, so I am off to try a glass of chilli beer my hubby bought me (meant to help my throat!!) - it has a WHOLE chilli in the bottle......I may regret this.....but you have to try new things right?
