Louise’s Tag Tuesday challenge this week is “Friends”. As usual, I sweated and toiled, only to come up with yet another simple tag.
This tag is in the form a a small gift card. A friend has asked me to make some gift tags for her shop, so I started with this one.
Can you believe…I do not have a “Friend/s” stamp! I live in a country where I have not found a shop that sells stamping supplies, so I cannot pop out and buy such a stamp. Before anyone suggests that I start up such a business, I can tell you that I do not have the stamina or patience to deal with the…ummm…shall I call it bureaucracy here! Neither do I order things online to be delivered here, because there is a strong likelihood that they would disappear before I could get them. That, or either I would have huge hassles with import duties etc. Nah…it is simpler for me to wait until I go to the UK or South Africa to look for supplies. I guess the upside of all this is that I have to use what I already have or improvise.
Anyway, the stamps I used were:
Teddy Hug – Stamp Africa
Soft Knit Tweed Print – Hero Arts. I used that for the background with the Teddies.
Writing Stamp – Tin Can Mail – used for the general background.
Inks – Green and Laurel Leaf by Versa Color.
I was going to write “friends’ inside the card, but decided to leave the inside blank, but hopefully this tag will qualify for the “Friends” challenge. I think these little teddies look as if they are friends , don’t you 🙂
