'C' is for Child Tag

Tag time again !! This is the 'C' for Child Tag I have crafted as a challenge over on UK Stampers Forum. I thought the Klimt image was appropriate and it looks really cool on the metallic card that looks very much like copper !

Pale blue card was used as the base tag. This was then coloured with Distress inks applied with cut'n'dry foam in shabby shutters & vintage photo. This was then stamped with vintage photo and a diamond stamp from PaperArtsy at the top and was heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Two background stamps (dots & sticks ?) were inked in Distress pine needles and vintage photo and stamped as seen. A mask (Heidi Swapp) of a tree branch was applied at the bottom right and more Distress pine needles applied over it. That completes the base tag.

Next a Klimt image of a mother and child(Cherry Pie) was inked in black Stazon and stamped onto a two-tone metallic card. This was trimmed out and applied to the tag with foam pads as shown.

A chipboard 'C' and a star were coloured with Distress vintage photo and applied as shown with Glossy Accents. The pre-printed 'precious' and letters (K&Co) were inked with vintage photo Distress and applied as shown. Finally the whole tag was edged in dark brown chalk ink and an eyelet and satin ribbons threaded through to decorate.
