I added a pop of twisted citron for the eyes. My dies are en-route so yep...fussy cutting for me :/
I wanted the the extra Mini Koi and fish bones to be in a basket. Since I don't have one I improvised with the base of the juggler for the Big Top stamps. Sizzix has new Leather Paper so I had to play cutting it out with the Tag and Bookplate die.
With the leather paper tag cut out time to test it! I inked up my "Note to Self" wee folder. Now time to test how durable this stuff is.
I sprayed, dragged, soaked, dried and repeated about 5 times to get this worn looking tag. Yep, I am a fan! It took my abuse and I threw product and water at it. Ink your ribbon with the left over ink on the mat.
Ohhh pretty... because I wasn't done I then inked and stenciled it.
With the "EAT" cut out on mat board I sprayed back soot and sanded the edges. Then I inked up this adorable Royal Fork Charm with twisted citron. Then assemble.
I love this de-embossed look with the "Not to Self" folder.
It was worth all the fussy cutting... one boney fish in his mouth and a Mini Koi caught.
The leather paper really takes a lot!
This looks like a bucket a fish n' bones. I added some glossy accents to the Mini Koi fish so they look slimy! You would never have know it's from Big Top.
I love the pop of twisted citron on the Royal Fork Charm
What a fun tag to create and these new Crazy Cats and my Upstream stamps are so fun together.
