Tap Tap

At a Crafty Individuals workshop recently we were messing about with TAP or transfer artist paper. You stamp your image onto the paper colour in with your preferred colouring medium and then iron your image onto fabric. Now this is the sort of of ironing I enjoy lol.
                                                       a little gift bag
                                            a matching card
 The backgrounds were made by sticking strips of patterned paper onto a piece of card, spritzed with inks and then calmed down with a white spray.

I tried out the Distress Markers. now those of you who follow my ramblings know that I'm not a confident colourer but I'm going to eat my words and say...........................................I LOVE THEM!!! and yes I've bought them.

Just popped in for a cuppa

You never know what will happen when you pop into the World of Stuff aka Gail's. I only stopped by for a cup of tea and I came home with this.
By the time the kettle had boiled I had covered the chipboard shape with paper from "the bit box". A bit of stamping, paper pleating and colouring with my one copic (skin tone) and hey presto one door hanger.
  I just love my crafty friends
