'R' is for Rust Tag

Here is a 15 x 9 cm tag I did for the Sunday Challenge on UK Stampers Forum. The Letter was 'R' and the topic was 'Rust'. I wanted to do a dark and rusty finish so this is what I used and did to create the tag:

  • White base card
  • Dark Brown croc effect handmade mulberry paper
  • Stamp (Frayed linen ?)
  • Chipboard letter R
  • Epoxy stickers
  • Ruler background paper
  • Black fine wire
  • Copper gauze
  • Embossing Powder (Chinese Lacquer)
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Black Eyelet
  • Sticky fingers gold spray
  • Antique gold rub-on wax

I first took the handmade paper and covered the tag with it, cutting a hole and applying the black eyelet with the Crop-o-Dile.

The stamp was inked with Versamark and applied three times randomly over the tag and heat embossing with the EP. The tag surface was sprayed with gold sticky fingers spray and finished with metallic rub-ons in antique gold.
The copper gauze was distorted and small amounts of the EP were melted into the surface in a random fashion. This was then adhered as shown with sticky dots. Next the chipboard R was heat embossed with the EP and the black wire wrapped around the R (which was then adhered with a sticky dot) and then around the tag adhering at the back with sticky tape. The ruler paper was cut into strips and two strips were applied at the top and behind the copper gauze.

The epoxy letters were applied with sticky dots as shown. Finally some more black wire was twisted through the eyelet to finish.

Hope you like it :-)
