I got a crafty tattoo!
Well, sort of.
The lovely Genevieve from Floss & Mischief sent me a pack of her new sewing-themed temporary tattoos to try. They're so much fun!
I'd not used a temporary tattoo since I was a kid (I vaguely remember getting a free one in a cereal packet?) and had completely forgotten how magical they are.
They're really easy to apply - though you do need to actually follow the instructions and not be an idiot (like me) and forget to peel off the plastic backing (oops!). I applied a selection of designs to my wrists and they looked perfect for a couple of days, and still fun for a couple of days after that, and then they scrubbed off easily in the shower.
It was rather fun pretending to be cool enough (and brave enough) to have real craft-themed tattoos. I got lots of "I love your tattoos!" comments at Renegade... though I'm sure everyone thought I was a lot less cool after I excitedly blurted out "They're temporary tattoos! Aren't they awesome??!"
They do look pretty darn awesome. Here are more of the designs, as modelled by Genevieve:
I'll be saving up the rest of the designs in the pack for the next time I have a crafty day out (it seems a shame to waste them on trips to the Post Office and the supermarket, or on days spent at my laptop) but I think this might be the start of a new addiction. I will definitely be treating myself to another pack or two when I've used up this one!
Disclosure: I was sent my Floss & Mischief temporary tattoos as a gift, but I'm blogging about them because they are genuinely awesome and put a huge grin on my face :)
