This week's challenge is brought to us by our newest hostess, +MariLynn DeGroot! She's challenging us to include some wavy 'static' lines on our projects.
I needed to replenish my stash of thank you tags, so I used the challenge to get my project started. I like tucking these tags in with etsy orders, and with all the Christmas necklaces I sold, I'm out! :)
The manila tags were printed using my Gelli Plate - I promise I'll video that process next time!
I made the straight lines on the first set and wavy lines on this second set of tags using Roylco Paint Scrapers - these are kids' art supplies - inexpensive and they work great! They come in a set of 4.
The 'thank you' message is actually a die cut opening using a die from the set below - this is one of my designs and was actually designed with this type of project in mind.
I used my grid mat to make sure I had it straight, and stuck the die on the sticky side of a Post-it note...
Then I used the straight sides of the sticky note to line up the die on my tags and hold it in place for cutting. Works like a charm!
I'm on the CHA show floor today - I am not cool enough to be able to post pictures directly from my phone, but I promise I'll upload from my camera when I'm able! Don't be surprised if I share more pictures of people than new products... though I'll be checking out products, I'm more excited about connecting with friends!
See you soon!
