Your Tags!!!

For me tags are the best way to really experiment and try out new techniques on a smaller scale...
So, I've created a layered tag probably because I didn't want to cover the 'perfect' image!


Seriously fired brick distress ink with copper perfect pearl is STUNNING!!!. It is really effective for the perfect distress technique which I've used on the large tag and had to apply to the wings on the grungepaper butterfly too. Also wanted to direct you to the button in the centre punched rosette.. It was originally blue I love this accoutrement of Tim's but never seem to create with that tone of blue. So... I got out my versamark pen and applied directly to the button and dabbed on the perfect pearl powder to these areas, then heat set.


The sentiment has been stamped on sticky back canvas, adhered to thin grey board and cut using styled labels die. I then inked with distress inks, stamped with Wendy Vecchi script background and finished off with a spritz of distress ink & copper perfect pearls.


An extra styled labels tag was cut from the clear acrylic packaging (you know the fabby stuff your die's come in) as I wanted the butterfly to appear like it's floating. Die cut the butterfly body from adhesive foam too so it would look better at the back!


The ball chain was added to give you the ability to move and read the sentiment. The 7gypsy's seam binding has been heavily creased, spritzed with glimmer mist and tied to the top.

Stamps used are Wendy Vecchi and Tim holtz.

Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see their fabulous tags!!!
