This is, I think, my penultimate Tattoo CJ entry. Pity because I've really enjoyed this circle.
This is for Rhian's CJ which had an open theme - ie anything at all to do with tattoos goes.
I thought I'd do something about how each decade has its own signature style, I should know, like everyone else who had a tattoo in the mid 80s I have a Celtic armband :D
The big craze in the noughties is apparently stars, which are far and away the most popular tattoo at the moment, especially for girls. Kat Von D has a lot to answer for :)
The background paper I made for this entry is one of those impossible-to-photograph jobbies, as it's heavy on the glimmer mist and has lots of fairly subtle stamping that doesn't really show up on the pics, but you get the general gist.
It's orange and red distress inks on heavy watercolour paper, with gold, copper, and red glimmer mists on top, and over stamping using red, orange and pink distress inks and rust Stazon.
This CJ is also my first ever attempt at sewing on paper, I haven't done the neatest job but I'm glad I gave it a go.
The title was stamped and embossed with pearlescent garnet EP from Stampendous.
And the dymo-stylee labels were made with my Around The Block label maker using some of their "designer" tape
and that's about it
Happy Heart Day!
