Art tag by Sioux Jenneys

It's the fourth day of a new month....it must be my turn again to share something with you and this time I'm here to share a tag :)


1. I started by using my two Distress Stains...dried marigold and broken china to colour a tag and with the remains of the ink that ended up on the craft sheet I tapped the tag into the colours trying to get the dried marigold onto the blue section and the broken china onto the marigold section :)


2. Then it was a matter of some stamping and masking to create the main group...

...first the crown from crowning glory heat embossed in gold...

... then the Ball bottle stamped in Archival coffee...

...then the wings from crowning glory stamped in Archival aquamarine.

3. I left all these masks on and stamped the ruler from ephemera #1 down one side in Distress Ink weathered wood....then the ink blots from the A5 size swirls, splats and dots in Distress spiced marmalade

4. I then removed the masks for the wings and stamped the words premiere and deuxieme from the dance plate in Archival black....and also the word Art from creative art thoughts and air mail from bird collage elements.

5. Some white cotton ribbon (you can get similar ones here) was colourised with the same two Distress Stains that are this months special offer with 20% off :)......how vibrant these are on material! Then stapled to the tag.

6. A screw top brad was added to hold a piece of wire with a trinket pin dangling from it.

7. The edges were tattered and inked with Distress Ink antique linen and the bottle coloured with Distress peeled paint using a cut and dry nib.



Thanks for looking. See you again soon!
xoxo Sioux
