First I'll explain who Fred is. Fred was anyone in our family when I was little, my Mum, bless her was so bad at names she called us all Fred quite a lot, it was her way of not upsetting anyone because she had forgotten their name.
So this 'tag' only came about because when looking for a piece of paper to do the heart embelishment (Tim showed this on his blog a few days ago) I came across this piece, which brought this memory flooding back.
Firstly I cut a heart from grungeboard, this I attached to some card, using Claudines Multi Medium I adhered the book paper over the top taking care to 'mold' it around the heart. Leave to dry (or if you are me hit it with a heat gun!)
I cut a piece of sticky note to cover the words then applied broken china distress ink with an aplicator. This was then stamped with a Paper Artsy swirly stamp.
The background has been run though the Big Shot in an embossing folder twice (first with a caligraphy folder, this I inked with distress and then run it though the Big shot again in fleu d'lis embossing folder then inked this in another distress ink).
The bottom of the tag is an image transfer (the same as the tag in the last post).
The childern is a stamp from The Queens Dresser Drawers which I just cut the children out.
