This tag began by
being drug through Distress Inks... Peeled Paint, Evergreen Bough and Vintage Photo... that had been laid down on my craft mat then spritzed with water. After a drying with my heat tool, I sponged on more inks then gave it a spray with Perfect Pearls Mist in Heirloom Gold, and distressed the edges with Tonic's Paper Distresser.
I stamped on Jet Black
Archival ink with the music score stamp from Skipping Stones Design "Timeless Textures" set. I pierced a row of holes across the bottom using the Idea-ology Design Ruler and Tonic Craft Pick, and put in Idea-ology Mini Fasteners in the Old Gold finish.
I cut the shanks off of
three vintage gold buttons and applied with Tombow Mono glue. The banner is made with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners die and a piece of My Mind's Eye paper from my scrap box. I edged it with my Zig Painty Pen in Gold and stamped it with JB Archival and an old sentiment set from Sweet 'n Sassy.
I made the rosette using
Alterations Mini Rosette Decorative Strip, spritzed it with Golden Sleigh Bells Starburst spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang and glued on a piece of tinsel trim. It's topped with two snowflakes cut with Alterations Mini Snowflakes. I added gold rhinestones to the snowflakes, the banner and one of the buttons for a shot of bling.
I colored the seam binding
with the same three Distress Inks and teamed it with a piece of fiber from my stash. Ahhhh good! Now I have two tags done. I'd better get moving... so many more to do!
Thanks for stopping by!
