Shiny .....

Made a decorated tag for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ..... it has been photographed at an angle to hopefully show the iridescence of the tag ......

The base was cut from re-cycled food packaging. I then cut a top layer from dark blue textured card. I then prepared the background with stencils and various colours of Mica inks dabbed through the stencil allowing it to dry. Some black stars were stamped and heat embossed in black embossing powder onto this.

I then took a die (Aall & Create) and die-cut this from black card which was sprayed with mica sprays in various colours. It was cut in two and applied to the background as shown.

I then stamped the sentiment (Woodware) in Versamark ink and heat embossed with mauve mica embossing powder (Moonglow). This was trimmed and matted on black card to frame. It was added as shown.

The edges of the tag were then treated with more Versamark ink and dipped into more of the embossing powder and heated to set. I then added a gold eyelet with the Crop-a-dile which was threaded through with some shiny crochet thread.

The tag was finished with a number of dark metallic adhesive gems......
