|Shabby Chic Tag with Fabric Stamping|
A feast of neutrals and ready to stamp and die cut fabrics is what you'll find. I chose some buckram and die cut a butterfly from it. I like the stiffness of this fabric and the fun things you can do like dye it, mist it and wet and scrunch it into fun flowers. The second fabric is somewhere between a burlap and a muslin. I'm sure someone out there would know the proper term, but I've come to call it "burlin". The kraft color is very vestile like a burlap, but smooth and flexible like a muslin.
Stazon ink was used to stamp the Butterfly Die Cut with a script background and the "So Happy" sentiment. I also liked the look of inking the edges of the craft lace.
The ribbon is seam binding I dyed in the left over dye from the ecru doily you see under the butterfly. I love that its just a light pink with a few burned spots. I think I'll be using up lots of extra dye like this in the future. It is always good to have a nice stock of vintage ribbon to draw from.
Have a great day,
