I used the new Alphabet Soup by Neil Walker as my starting point. I clear embossed the background onto a tag.
Then I sprayed lots of lovely Dylusions colour onto it, and dried it with a heat tool. I love the squiggly doodly lettering.
I hadn't really planned on making two tags, but as soon as I'd cut him, I realised I had the makings of a 'positive' and a 'negative' version.
For the backgrounds, I just blended on various Distress Ink colours from grass to sky and gave both tags a good old spritz and flick with some water.
I cut them and inked the edges and mounted them on padded tape for a little pop of dimension.
I altered a couple of Muse Tokens with Distress Paint, then sanded back to the metal underneath.
As soon as I saw the silvery detailing, I wanted to echo it on the rest of the tags.
And that's pretty much that... I hope you like my doodly tags.
Thanks so much for stopping by - I always love to hear what you think.
Oh, and we'd also love it if you came along to play in our July challenge By the Seaside - can't wait to see your creations. See you again soon.
