Good Top Tip Tuesday and Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Well its Tuesday and that means its Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, and this week we have a Tutorial by Katrina and a great Challenge too! This weeks theme is
‘Straight Edges’
So that means No circles or ovals or anything with curves etc
This weeks AWESOME sponsors are
So for my project for this challenge I wanted to make a tag and a card so I used 2 images as Robyns Fetish were kind and gave us some images to work with, so using Birdie's Nest I have made a tag with shrink plastic, I printed off the image into an A5 sheet and then traced it onto clear shrink plastic, coloured it with distress inks .

As I loved this image below also I decided to make 2 things and using Waking Up Birdie I also did a matching card, coloured with the distress inks also, but using a simple lay out and some Ribbon from my friend Helen she sent me for my Birthday. the little flower with jute tied on is shrink plastic also.
A few gems and there you go!
