Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
So, here I am with another tag to share. I'm really enjoying the making of these tags but unfortunately I need to catch up on my card making so I'll have to leave the rest until a later date. Boo Hoo :(
This tag is one of the few I rescued from my attempt at spraying the backgrounds and is a little more 'grunge' or more male oriented than the others I've made, although it still has a flower on it.
I used a Tim Holtz Alterations die for the embossing and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The cabochon was in my stash and I glued it onto a brad from Kaisercraft. The small piece of heavy mesh is actually a piece cut from a roll of gutter guard which I swiped with silver and gold Versa Color. Some of the cogs are from Dusty Attic and some from Imaginarium.
I love this quote. It is so true. We get so caught up in being 'mature' and 'acting our age' that we neglect our inner child and forget to have fun. We need more 'fun' in this world.
I placed a piece of corrugated cardstock at the bottom of the tag and then decided I needed a metal flower. Well, of course I didn't have any but I did have some paper petals that I had cut out ages ago when I was putting some other projects together and decided to use those instead. I just inked them with bronze and gold Versa Color and they almost look like the real thing. The brad in the centre is from Graphic 45.
I added some gauze which I coloured with Tea Stain Distress Ink and the cogs which are again coloured with silver and gold Versa Colour.
So that is tag No. 4. I want to make at least 8 of these tags but, as I said at the beginning of this post, I have to leave the rest for a later date. We have lots of Birthdays and Anniversaries coming up so I need to make the cards for those or my friends and family will be upset with me and I can't have that. Too much hassle. LOL
Once again, thank you so much for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day.
Please take care and God Bless.
