Leafing week: Tag

Linda is with us today with a magnificent tag. LOVE the rich colours combined with the gilding. 

Playing Tag!
For my tag this week I used Gilding Flakes on my Tim Holtz Die. Once the glue is dry and the Gilding Flakes are burnished they make a nice surface for stamping on. The main tag is coloured using Aged Mahoghany Distress Stain and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist. I edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and applied a strip of Double Sided Tape down the centre so I could balance the design with some more Gilding Flakes. To attach the Trim I used tiny paperclips, Jump Rings and a few metal embellishments.

Products I used:
Gilding Flakes: Variagated Red/Gold
Tim Holtz Stamps: Shabby French
Distress Stain: Aged Mahogany
Tim Holtz Dies: Butterfly Movers and Shapers; Sewing Room Bigz Die
Tim Holtz Embellishments: Mini Paper Clips; Jump Rings

See  you tomorrow
