I like to make tags for bookmarks. Especially thin tags such as this one below as they are perfect for reference books where you want to mark several places without the book getting bulked out. Whilst surfing some blogs late last night i came upon this challenge blog Less is More & the challenge was Touch of Red. So I thought my Gorjuss girl would fit the bill.
I was very lucky to be bought a fabulous Gorjuss Organiser by my work secret santa & I fell in love! I decided to purchase a few gorjuss girls to stamp inside it & this one called Foxy, really jumped out. This image is very similar to one in the book. My favourite in the book is Ruby, & I have a mug with her on, heading my way in the post, for my morning tea :0)
Back to the tag! It is created on white thin card which is 140gsm. This card while being thin, is still sturdy enough to stamp on & colour using distress inks. For this design I have simply stamped her in Black Rangers Archival ink & the touches of red are dark red wax crayon (I tidied up my craft stuff over the winter months & can not locate my pencil crayons!!)
In the winter months I just can not craft. The artificial light is poor & I fail to match shades of colour. I grew tired of throwing poor quality work away, wasting precious materials, so decided to put everything away until the lighter days got here. In the meantime, I have done a lot of reading & self discovery. But, I will be back soon. I am currently working on a mini tag book of inspirational quotes to keep me positive minded. I have not done too well with positive thoughts over the gloom of the snow & dark winter days.
