And the tattered florals die from Tim Holtz was perfect to use for creating a custom flower out of the papers I used as a collage on my silver and black tag. I cut out two of the large-sized flowers out of paper, then stamped a flower image on each using Ranger Archival ink in black. I inked the edges with Distress Ink in black soot and sprayed them with glimmer mist. I shaped the petals while they were damp and after it was dry, I glued the pieces together. I took a wooden button and tied bakers twine and slipped my charm through it - I love that as a finishing touch.
There are a lot of multi-media effects I used with these tags, include collage, flowers, lace, trims, chalk inks (so great for the last layer because they are opaque), distress inks, stamps, molding paste, acrylic craft pain, chipboard pieces - I loved it!
I made these tags for a swap on http://myscraproom.ning.com.
I can't wait to see what my partner made!
