Child Of Our Time Tag

This tag is No.25 in the UK Stampers Rolling Recipe Weekly Challenge.  The recipe this week is:

1. Something shiny
2. Numbers
3. Stamped image of a child

I started with a piece of white card cut to size.  This was liberally covered in crushed olive Distress ink applied with cut'n'dry foam.  I then used the flourish mask from TH and rubbed over with chipped sapphire Distress ink until the desired image was obtained. I left some areas still showing the original colour.

Next I used a numbers plate from Paperartsy and stamped with moonlight white Brilliance ink top and bottom as shown.  I then took another numbers corner stamp from Paperartsy and stamped this in coffee bean Brilliance ink in the bottom right corner.

Next I used a TH Sizzix 'on the edge' die and diecut some printed ruler paper with the Big Shot and applied this piece centrally across the tag.

The child plate was made by inking another Paperartsy stamp with chipped sapphire Distress ink and heat embossing this with Clear UTEE.  Once cool the image was torn out and coloured with crushed olive and chipped sapphire Distress inks. This was mounted on foam pads and stuck in place as shown.

Finally I added some shiny epoxy numbers top and bottom, applied some lime grosgrain ribbon through an eyelet done with the crop'a'dile and applied a pewter metal corner to the bottom of the tag.

Simples !
