Canvas Tag

This tag was inspired by a challenge on Talkcrafts Forum and was kindly hosted by Glynis and my thanks go to her for hosting.

The tag is cut from canvas and has been decorated as follows: I tissue stamped two images, the Angel by Crafty Individuals and a word background with blue Stazon ink. These were then cutout. Meanwhile the tag was first sponged with chalk inks to obtain the desired effect. A coat of matt mod podge was applied thinly and quickly and then the tissue images applied over this with more mod podge, ensuring no air bubbles between the canvas and the tissue. The whole thing was allowed to dry thoroughly. The diamonds were stamped with black Stazon and a text stamp was overstamped with Brilliance pearlescent sky blue ink which I heat set. I then used the sewing machine to sew corresponding sides with a close zig-zag stitch in dark blue thread. Finally applying a beige eyelet to the hole in the tag and embellishing with assorted purple fibres.
