Red Goth Tag

Wow did I have fun with this project.  A Spoonfull of Sugar and Ohh La La both asked us to use tags.  First thing that came to mind was my poor neglected distress inks.  Well they are not really neglected, but it has been at least a week since I used them last.

I started off by die cutting the tag and inking it with Fired Brick and Black Soot ink pads.  I had to build up layers of colour to get the depth that I wanted.  Each time I completed a layer of colour, I spritzed it with water and then dried it off using my heat gun.  You get some really nice effects that way.  I have also used a best wishes stamp on my tag, but you need to click on the tag to see the finer details..  Once I was happy with the colour, I covered most of the tag with clear iridescent embossing powder.  I only heat the powder long enough to get some gloss and texture.

I have used a digistamp from Stitchybear stamps.  The wings have been done with Sakura Gellyroll to give them glimmer and I have outlined the whole image in the palest pink copic I have to create a slight halo effect. I love embellishing things so this weeks challenge at Stamp Something was perfect for this project.

This card has a combination of flowers, brads, eyelets, chains, charms,pearls a metal flower, ribbon and lace. Some of those embellishments qualified this card for the challenge over at Paper play Challenges, who asked us to use ribbons lace and buttons.  I have attached the tag to the card with foam tape and I have curled a couple of the edges of the tag up for a more dimensional effect.
