Shaped Tag


Created for a challenge. I used a sizzix die to create the tag shape. The larger shape was cut from canvas paper, then rubbed with Distress pads in Walnut Stain & Dusty Concord. This was then spritzed, then sprayed with a little Antique Gold spray. Finished by sponging on a little Mustard Seed ink.


The centre piece was sponged with Dusty Concord, Mustared Seed and Fired Brick, before stamping with a text in StazOn Royal Purple. Walnut Stain was sponged around the edges, and then it was also sprayed with Antique gold.


The flourishes are sizzlets die cuts. Cut from cream card, then sponged with the same colours as above. The flourishes were attached, followed by a Paper Whimsy image. Flowers were punched from a sheet of faux rust paper I had made and brads placed through the centre, and finally a text ribbon was coloured and an eyelet placed through the top of the tag before adding various fibres.

This tag definitely shows all the wonderful work you put into it! It's a real inspiration, too. I have Spellbinders dies but never do anything with them. The image you chose works perfectly with the antiqued background. Fabulous first post for this challenge!

Rachel, this is truly a gorgeous work of art. Several questions popped into my head: how did you make faux rust paper? how did you find all those wonderful ink pads? (none of our craft stores carry those). And those fab cutouts! Wow, what neat shapes! I love all the antiquing you did on this piece.
