First I inked my craft mat with scattered straw & bundled sage DI's, spritzed with water & dragged my tag through a couple of times, drying after each layer. I then placed a Crafter's Workshop mini chicken wire stencil over the tag & spritzed with a tea dye re-inker mixed with water & heirloom gold Perfect Pearls. Next I stamped the PaperArtsy flower (its not a flower but can't think of its name) in black archival. I took another tag & did the same as above but used peeled paint & tumbled glass then spritzed through a Prima corner mask with Cosmic Shimmer teal wash (again!). Inked the edges with frayed burlap, stamped with the PaperArtsy sentiment & mounted onto spare black card. At the top right hand corner I added a white American Crafts rub-on & then stamped a 7 Gypsies butterfly & spritzed with a combination of different inks & then added a tiny dab of Adirondack espresso pearl. Lastly I wrapped some twine around the tag, stapled together with my TH tiny attacher & slipped a TH pen nib behind it. I mounted the sentiment onto foam for dimension, slightly off the tag & placed two Crafter's Companion hat pins behind & vintage ribbon to finish - & of course a TH embellishment!
A big 'thank you' to all of you who have made such lovely comments over the last couple of weeks. It's nice to know that I'm not talking to myself! Also for taking an interest in our yearly 'Safari Supper'. Such fun!
