The Spirit of Things Tag

This tag is another in the rolling recipe series over on UK Stampers Forum.  The recipe for this week is:

1.  Fabric
2.  Dots
3.  A Crown

I started with a tag blank and covered this with some printed diamond background paper  the edges of the tag were coloured with dark green chalk ink..  This was then stamped twice with a spirit stamp (Invoke Arts) in moss green Versafine ink. I then took a piece of spotty mirror fabric that I had had for ages and gathered the top edge with needle and thread.  This was then adhered with small glue dots to the bottom half of the tag and trimmed to fit.  Some purple sequins were added onto the material on small glue dots as shown.

Next I took a piece of green card and stamped an Invoke Arts image of a dressform woman in onyx black Versafine ink.  This was trimmed out and some ice Stickles added onto the bottom of the form.  Once dry a double layer of adhesive foam squares were added to the top half of the dressform and this was stuck in place over the material (hiding the gathered material).

Next a metal crown embellishment was adhered on foam pads on the head of the dressform woman.  I then cut a narrow strip of the material and stapled this at the top with gold staples to finish.

This tag is very 3D and I liked working with the material for a change too !
