So, here is the run down! I Love doing tags. Tim Holtz is one of my fav. designers (bet you didn't guess that one!) I love his alteration sets. I love Ranger colour washes. I love all Ranger products. I love distressing things. I love Hels blog. I loved going to one of her workshops at the Stamp Attic where I got the idea for inking and embossing and stamping and adding paper flowers (Tim Holtz tattered floral die of course) to a tag. I love the above colour combination.
If that is not enough 'Love' I have added a red heart and a locket which I have distressed with some black acrylic. I dyed the piece of upholstery braid with colour wash. The tag was dipped in butterscotch colour wash and then wild honey and spiced marigold. I distressed the edge and used walnut stain to close it in. Then I ran it through my cuttlebug to emboss the ledger page which was ruthlessly sanded back to reveal the core of the tag. The paper flower was die cut and scrunched up before pinning together with a brad. The chiffon on the top was heat distressed til it shrivelled. Phew! Oh yes, the book plate from Tim's tags die was covered in Viva gold, then rock candy distress,dried and sanded back to look, well, distressed - and then I stamped Hope in the middle and used glossy accents in the middle - yet another product I lOVE! There we have it, a tag of Love!
Love to you all, have a great Sunday evening. x
