Timmy's Tag Day 9

Another one of Tim's Tags, this one is No.9 and now only 3 to go before Christmas Day ! I started with a white tag, cut to size.  The background was made using a music stamp (?) inked with Archival black ink and stamped twice at the top of the tag.  The colouring was done using wild honey and brushed corduroy Distress inks rubbed onto a non-stick craft mat and sprayed with some pumpkin blush Glitz Spritz mica spray with the tag being smooshed through the inks and dried with the heat gun a couple of times.  The edges of the tag were roughed up with coarse sandpaper and inked with walnut stain DI.

The bottom of the tag was measured out and a row of pewter brads applied and these were battered with the edge of a small hammer to distress them.  The rosette was made using the TH (Sizzix) die out of TH printed paper and was edged with walnut stain DI and sprayed with the pumpkin blush spray.  The centre was decorated with an old button applied on a glue dot.  I had no tinsel so I used some fancy ribbon applied behind the rosette as shown.

The letters were die- cut from dark brown linen effect card using the Sizzix 'The Ginchiest' typeface and the Big Shot, stuck in place with glue-pen and glossed with Glossy Accents.  The rosette was then stuck in place with a large glue-dot.

Finishing touches were to add an eyelet with the crop-a-dile and thread through some brown and silver ribbons and apply a dangly piece of old jewellery.  The other embellishments were a brad holding some more of the silver ribbon in place and two gold dew-drops.
