Goodbye ... from Hels

Gooodly Morning Snazzyfans and a very happy Saturday to you all!   As my title suggests, it is time for me to say goodbye to the Snazzy DT.  Thank you to Gillian and the rest of the girlies on the team for making me so welcome... and to Val & Don for having me.  For my very last Snazzy creation, I have used the fabby Chalk Studio papers from My Minds Eye and made a tag.


In the paper pack are two sets of stickers.  Now I am not usually one for stickers but I rather loved this sentiment... so I unpeeled it and popped it onto cardstock, cut it out and then popped 3d foam on it... hello a nice 3d sentiment... that's why I don't like stickers!  Cos they are flat!  Anyways, along with the 3d sentiment, I also added layers of papers to my tag (which is a Size 10 one), edging them with Frayed Burlap and then distressing the edges for the shabby look.



I love a smidge of black so I used Black Marble Dylusions to add that hint across the tag, jut a very light mist is all that is needed... and it is a bit of a "hold your breath" moment whilst the spritzing is going on... but if you do it before any of the embellishing and you make a muck of it, you can always just pop stuff over the top :O)   I piled some paper flowers onto kitchen roll and gave them a spritz with more Black Marble and then Antique Rose Cosmic Shimmer for some sparkle.  A quick zap with the heat tool to dry the inks off and then popped onto the tag using good old Cosmic Shimmer glue to adhere them all together.  And there you have it... a simple but pretty tag... and not a single stamped image in sight!



Thank you to everyone who has left lovely comments for me over the past 18 months whilst I have been part of the Snazzy DT... it has been lovely!  Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Thank you so much for rounding off your time with us with a wonderful tag so beautifully evocative of....well, Hels! Great tip with stickers too, they can look so much better than they appear on the sheet. Many thanks too for the time you have given us out of your very busy schedule and for the amazeballs projects you have shared xx
