After stalling on Tim's Tags day 6, I finally got going again. Day 6 tag didn't really appeal to me. I totally struggled with it. In the end, I decided to go with a black and silver tag...
I started by sticking some tinfoil to card and using a CB folder embossed it. I then swiped it with black ink and then clear embossed it. I ended up having to buy a new Versamark pad as the black didn't dry well. At this point, I left the tag as I really didn't know what more to do. Today, I relooked at it and thought how to finish it. I added some grey adhesive edging, some bakers twine, a stamped image of a girl and a little Christmas-y tag, with some black and cream pearls. Not that Christmas-y, but at least I tried some of Tim's techniques.
So then I moved onto Day 7's tag.... more to my liking.
I used some Distress inks on my craft sheet to make the background. I then stamped a border from a HA set to give the idea of fabric. I stamped and embossed the Tim Holtz sentiment and cut out. I then coloured three pearls with Red Pepper alcohol ink and tied with tinsel and some tulle and lace to form a bow. I stamped some cut out some Holly leaves and punched some twigs. I used Pine Needle distress ink to darken my green card. Added tulle and ribbon and gems at the top of the tag.
So just 5 left to do. I wasn't up to much more today as I am getting a cold... been sneezing and coughing all day... didn't get much sleep with the coughing last night. Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel better.
Take care and have a great weekend.
