At The Mall - Label Shopping

This month's challenge theme at Gingersnap Creations is to celebrate SHOPPING! How cool is this? And the first Chestnut Theme challenge is to show us what you find At The Mall. It could be anything ... clothes, crafty items, food, .... I went label shopping and chose one of my favourite clothes' labels (sorry for the advertising(lol) )
Supplies: vellum, stamp: Stapendous and Kaisercraft, colouring: Copics and Koh-i-noors

The colour and shape of the label were the basis for the design. I love the red, it is so vibrant and complements so well with the bright blue and white. I layered the label onto vellum which I stamped with a Kaisercraft stamp and heat-embossed ... for the very first time that I heat-embossed vellum. It was a bit of trial and error as the first pieces looked rather wavy (lol) but having worked out after a while that shorter heating times and moving the heat gun around rather quickly does the trick, I really like the result. The bottom edge of the label is punched with an EKSuccess edge punch and decorated with a little paper flower. The stamped image is from Stampendous coloured with Copics and Koh-i-noors. I attached the label to the Vellum with two eyelets and threaded a ribbon through the two holes.

Don't forget to pop over to the Gingersnap blog to see all the amazing shopping experiences and join us to celebrate shopping. Happy shopping, Petra.

That is so brave to heat emboss on vellum. I only tried it once because it caught on fire.....
Loving your altered label. Annette x

Lovely work! We have an Esprit Outlet near here, so my car often seems to find the way there! Valerie

REALLY cute tag, Petra--Esprit used to be one of my absolute favorites, but I don't see it around here anymore. Of course, that may be because I don't go shopping much anymore, too!
