Cofee cup tag


Today I have another tag.
 I started by using Gesso on the tag.  Once dry I added Cotton Candy and Green Tea Gelatos to create the background. Next I added text at random places using a stamp from my stash. I then added a coat of Gel Medium . The swirls are made with modeling paste and I added mica powders before the paste dried completely. I used a piece of canvas to make the heart and added some cheese cloth before attaching  the cup to the tag.

Tim Holtz February tag challenge

Hi everyone!

This is my tag for the Tim Holtz 12 tags challenge. I didn't have all the materials he used so I improvised.

 I used paper from Tim's Wallflower stack and scraps from my stash to create the collage.
I cut 2 hearts from a scrap of fabric and glued them together. I used "festive berries " re-inker to add color to the heart and the arrow is an ideology sticker. I glued the heart to a resin frame that I colored with Distress paints.
I was feeling lazy so instead of sewing I used a stamp to create the stitching around the tag.
I created the corner piece by cutting a metal jewelry finding I had in my stash and I colored it with alcohol ink. I also colored the small heart brad on the top corner of the tag and the small heart that hangs from the metal key.
I found the hearts lace in my stash and it was a pale blue color , so I used my inks to distress it a bit and add it to the tag.
