Tag Play time

Hello everyone, welcome and I hope your week has gone well so far.
I just had a bit of play time today between other projects and made a quick tag, tags are still pretty much my favourite projects and they always come in handy.
I started by running a large tag through a Spellbinders 3D M bossabilities folder, this one is the Persian Splendour one. I inked it with Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.
I then stamped images from the Darkroom Door For Correspondence set, cut them out and arranged them on the tag.

The little panel at the top is made from Paperclay. I stamped into it with black Pigment ink and then dried it for about half an hour in the oven at a very low setting. (If you are patient, which I am not, this stuff will air dry in about a day, it is very light weight, so perfect for embellishments).

A couple of chit chat stickers and some flowers, some bit of chip board and a brad finished it all off.
The final bit was to add a bit of lace at the top and the tag was done.
I have just heard that there are a few places available still for the Finnabair Workshops at DAMSELFLY So if you have been considering this, now is your chance!!

Well, that's it from me for now, thanks for visiting and have a good week!!

  15. Your tags are always so gorgeous and so is this one. I feel so lucky to have a couple of them in real life, and I can only say, that they´re even much more beautiful in real life, as the pics don´t show the beauty as deserved, they´re absolutely awesome made all of them, real treasures.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
