Mondays child differently...
Well I do like to mix things up a bit so this weeks something different is an MDF tag. I did this piece for a workshop with Gloria and the lovely ladies of Diss. I started by covering one of the CE MDF Tags in white crackle decoupage paper from Craft Consortium using Cosmic Shimmer Matt glue and seal. I didn't seal over the top as with these papers you don't need to, if using other brands of Decoupage paper you may need to add a seal over the top so that the stamping and embossing has a surface to cling to.
Next I stamped the Mondays Child poem form my clear stamp set of the same name, onto the tag using perfect medium and heat set it using CS detail white embossing powder. I then stamped the snowflakes and stars from my snowdrops set in black archival around the left hand side. I added dots of cosmic white dimensional PVA on some of the snowflakes and stars to add texture.
Finally, I stamped the shaded camellia stamps and cut them out with the matching Sue Wilson dies. I added these around the bottom right and rubbed pewter gilding wax over the sides and edges before adding a tie of white seam binding.
A little dark but in real life there is a soft white and silver shine, honest!
