In my 'bits' box I had an arch shaped tag which I'd made ages ago using a rust technique by Andy Skinner, a stamped lady who just happens to be one of my favourite stamps - from Soul Of The Rose plate by Oxford Impressions, a piece of crackled card and a scrap of a peeled paint technique also learnt from Mr Skinner.
I had some beads from a charity shop buy which I keep taking off a bracelet and using, some cream seam binding and of course, some rusty wire. Here's what I did with these pieces for Tag Tuesday:
|Most of the mediums used to make the tag but sorry, no step by step as the tag was made from scraps!|
|The words were stamped onto a scrap of card with a peeled paint finish using Versamark. Walnut stain embossing powder was then used. The edges were shaped using an on the edge TH die.|
|The main tag was cut from corrugated card packaging using a Tando piece as a template. A Skinner rust finish was applied. The beads were attached to rusty wire and used through the tags punched hole.|
|I found this little pearlised button and aged it with some DecoArt Quin Gold Traditions paint. It was tied to the bow using some natural twine.|
|Close up to show the layers - bit blurred I'm afraid!|
Thanks for looking at this piece - I really do appreciate the comments you leave. Why not pop over and see what the other talented people at Tag Tuesday have come up with? You'll also find the details for joining in yourself if you want to.
