As I was dithering about whether I could finish the tags for Linda's challenge, I realized that I would have a long evening ahead of me in a hotel before flying out bright and early on Christmas morning to visit my family across the country..... and as I had a lot of the components already made for several tags, I decided to pack a little mini-studio and take it with me..... and a very lovely evening I had! Here is my take on Tag#10, one of three I completed in the hotel. I never work this fast - maybe I am on to something, lol!
I started with the tattered florals die cut in cream cardstock, wet them thoroughly and scrunched them up. Once dry, I carefully opened them up - this is a technique from the very talented Jenny Atkinson.
this guy - I used the Pewter Distress Paint - I think acrylic would be better next time, as I had a hard time getting the paint to stay in the recessed areas.
I made an arrangement that I liked, sprayed the label with the gold, wetting it and finger painting, and placing my little rose. I am sure the staff is going to wonder what the heck I was doing to use so much toilet tissue, as I forgot to bring my rag, and of course had not paper towels to hand, lol! But I surely did not want to mop up using their lovely terry towels!
Then I added a Tim Holtz rub-on, as I also had not brought stamps or permanent ink with me....
After gluing everything down with Glossy Accents, I ended up adding some little silver snowflakes - not too keen about them but oh well, they are attached now!
Here is a shot that shows some more of the texture.....you can just make out the acetate on the very bottom....
And here, once again, is the final "tag"..... Thanks for stopping by, and if you've time, please do leave a comment - I love hearing from you!
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday.... xxx Lynn
