Ever had a case of the pinks rather than the blues? lol
Today is definite a 'girlie' day, with this pink and purple shabby tag to celebrate a 21st birthday...
Starting with a manilla tag and some of these GORGEOUS Dylusions inks, I used Tim's wrinkle free distress method to cover it and then plenty of water splats using a pipette:
Some white Gesso sponged over and left to dry before stamping with black archival ink:
A snip of cream American seam binding and a piece of cane have been stained with the inks too:
I cut silver mirri card elements with dies and used a metal pattern wheel around the outside to add texture. Black acrylic paint (DP) was rubbed on and wiped off to give a grunged effect and highlights the texture itself. I added a little bow from chiffon shoestring ribbon:
More die cuts - some from cardboard and some from ordinary card - and some 'Typeset' numbers. Each has been edged with black DI or Treasure gold. Finally, lay out all the elements to the tag and glue:
Tag art has to be one of my favourite genres at the moment, so much fun.
Another project in a few days, this time from Amanda.
