TIO 51 Die Cuts

Silk, Leather and Lace! Well Silkies any way!
Created the background of the tag with an Anna Griffin stamp using the faded jeans distress ink pad, along with antique linen to blend the colour down. Cut out the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals using scraps of leather, love both the texture and the smell. Also cut out the Tim Holtz Fanciful Flight in chipboard (old box from work!) coloured it with a mixture of silkies and then added some fantasy film behind the wings to add another texture the tag.
Really must buy a new camera as the flowers have a fab shape when they are not squashed by the scanner!!!!

Love it! Like the use of leather to give a different dimension and feel to the piece. I bet it looks even better irl.

This is fabulous, Elizabeth! I think you are the only artist to use leather, so far! The flower is fine. We can figure out how it is supposed to be. I love all the different non-paper materials in this.

Great tag Elizabeth, such a variety of textures.
