hello again…today i have a sweet project i did on a large (#12) black ranger inc tag...
i used the large tag as my base then layered patterned paper after inking the edges with hickory smoke distress ink
i cut 'LOVE' out of a scrap of black kraft-core using tim holtz alphanumeric tall thinlits and trimmed it into a banner. then cut out 'round' using alphanumeric…obviously using the negative and positive cuts respectfully...all pieces were lightly sanded for some texture along with the words i trimmed from small talk stickers...
i cut a heart out of silver deco sheet with tim's heartfelt die and cut a small strip, tearing the edges to make it look like a piece of torn washi tape. both pieces were swiped with mushroom alcohol ink to age them…i love how the shimmer comes through no matter how much ink you apply
next up, an adornments arrow and a heart charm inked first with gold mixative alcohol ink then mushroom. i tied vintage thread around the middle of the arrow and through the hole in the heart
time to put it all together…i dyed some crinkle ribbon with tattered rose stain; once dried, I tied it to the top of the tag and added the heart charm with the vintage thread. i used multi medium to adhere all the paper and the arrow. once all the layers were on, i added a few bits of gilded accents (this stuff is so cool, )…i love how it all came together
thank you for visiting!
p.s. yes, i did blog twice this week…and, no, you should not have high expectations…we are taking this one day at a time, right!?
