Tims Tag No.5

Next one done ! This is my version of Tag No.5.  I first cut a white card tag and then cut a matching piece of acetate.  I coloured the acetate on one side with red pepper Alcohol ink applied on a piece of felt, building up the layers to gain the desired colour intensity.  Then I inked up a small text stamp with Archival Black ink and stamped several times to cover the acetate.  I dabbed off the excess black ink with a wipe and then rubbed gently to remove the excess ink.  This dissolves the alcohol ink and leaves a see-through area where the ink previously was.  Once complete the acetate was adhered (inked side down) to the white tag blank with Glossy Accents around the edge of the acetate.

Next I coloured some grungepaper with picket fence Distress Stain followed with some weathered wood.  This was then dried with the heat gun and die cut with a TH die to make the leafy fronds.  Once cut these were cut in two and shaped with my fingers to add dimension.  These were adhered with Glossy Accents at the top but left free at the bottom.  Some half pearls were added to embellish and a white ribbon bow tied and applied with foam pads.

Because the words were not necessarily Christmassy I added a circular seal stamped in Archival black, coloured with red pepper Adirondack ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The seal was stuck in place on more foam pads.

A hole was cut with the crop'a'dile at the top of the tag and threaded through with a piece of open mesh silver ribbon to finish.
