Hi everyone...hope you are all ok and had a fantastic week and now, looking forward to a relaxing weekend!! Today, is my turn to share my "Tag in a Bag" and I've taken lots of photos for you to see all the detail that has gone into this piece!! So, enjoy and as always, I really hope you like what I've created...
To begin with, I created my bag using the Tim Holtz Alterations, In The Bag die from my stash and I used Manila cardstock, to die cut my basic shape. I decorated the die cut bag, whilst flat and not made up, and covered the surface with Weathered Wood, Brushed Pewter, Salty Ocean and Antique Linen Distress Paint.
Next, I used the large stamp from Katy Fox's Numerical Plate and stamped directly onto the painted surface of my bag. I blended Walnut Stain DI around the edges and then used Snowcap Adirondack Paint Dabber and added streaks of white paint onto the bag and a small bottle top to create the circles. I then made up my dimensional bag.
To decorate the front, I used white paper flowers, which I sprayed with Perfect Copper Perfect Pearls Mists. I heat dried the flowers before adding wired stamens to the centres and then attaching them to the front of my bag.
I used the Sizzix Movers and Shapers Mini Moustache and Finger die to die cut chipboard which I then painted using Adirondack Paint Dabbers. I added these, together with a stamped message from the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings Stamp Set, attaching it to the front with the Tiny Attacher.
To create the tag, I used a Manila Size 8 tag which I had to trim down slightly so that it would fit into the bag. Once again, I covered the surface of the tag with the same coloured Distress Paints that I had previously used on the bag.
I built up the background of my tag, using some of the smaller stamps from the Katy Fox Numerical plate and added small amounts of torn tissue tape.
Next, I covered chipboard in sticky back aluminium and I used the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Fleur di Lis and Eiffel Tower Bigz die, to die cut just the tower. I then embossed the tower with the Eiffel Tower and French Script Texture Fade. I applied Alcohol inks to the surface of the tower and then added some Brushed Pewter Metallic Distress Paint over the top.
I attached the embossed tower to my tag and added a strip of Film Ribbon down the side, together with some Idea-ology Mini Gears and a Game Spinner.
As final touches to complete my tag, I added a Idea-ology Muse Token, attached to the side with a Swivel Clasp on a Hinge Clip. Finally, I coloured some cream seam binding with Distress Paints and Distress Stains and threaded this through the hole in my tag and tied it into a bow.
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look and I can't wait to read all your comments. Also don't forget that we have a fab new challenge this month and it's all about WORDS. So, if you would like to join in, we would love to see your creations.
Have a fabulous weekend and see you soon.
