"Boo. Boo. Butt." | #tgifc118

"Boo. Boo. Butt."

I know you think I have lost my mind but my kids favourite book is called "The Book With No Pictures".  The book is basically making parents say funny things because the words are on the pages in the book. (It's the rule, it states.)  And of course, there are no pictures. My kids think its hilarious especially when the reader has to say "Boo. Boo. Butt." It's a tasteful book, I promise... not always fun for the reader but most kids get a kick out of it.

So when I look at this stamp set A Little Wild by Stampin' Up!, I can't help but be reminded of this saying... and well, quite frankly... those little bums are too cute.

These little tags have a front and back - they were created with making little tags in mind.  They have co-ordinating Little Loves Framelits. Totally awesome and totally easy.

This week I am back designing with the TGIF Challenge Blog design team.  I have had my plate too full lately and haven't been able to join in as much as I'd like. This week's challenge is a 'Emboss Resist' technique.

What I'd like to say about this technique is not to over think it.  "Emboss Resist" is something that I do regularly because I am often water colouring with my aqua painter.  By heat embossing, the ink is resisting settling on the stamped lines plus the lines are slightly raised. It makes going outside the line very hard... It's brilliant!

In this particular tag, I heat embossed with black embossing powder and water coloured using my Stampin' Write markers.  Obviously, there's not a lot more than that for this project.  Add some powder pink ribbon and away you go.

I'd love to see you play along with the TGIF team this week - hope this gave you some inspiration! that is a little bit outside the box.
