Today I'm sharing the final demo piece from the shows on Tuesday. It's a tag and I made it so I could demo the techniques used in this post.
For the background, I used the Grid Mask. I inked through it with Rusty Hinge and Mustard Seed Distress Ink using Cut & Dry Foam. I really love the mosaic effect you get from this mask. I then randomly stamped some circles using a mister bottle top and the Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.
I stamped the stem of the flower with the chain from the Steampunk Shoes Stamp Set using Sepia Archival. I did not emboss it.
I stamped 2 of each of the 4 different small tickets from the Creative Expressions Tickets Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Embossing Powder. I coloured the edges of the tickets with the Copper Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set. I cut them all out.
I stacked the tickets up and pierced a hole through them all. I added a Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brad in Antique Gold and fanned the tickets out to look like a flower. I added 3D foam pads of the back and added the flower to the top of a chain stem.
I stamped some keys from the Creative Expressions Mechanical Handbags Stamp Set onto some card, which had been spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Misting Inks, using Perfect Medium and I embossed them with the gold powder. I cut them out and added them to the chain stems to make my 'leaves'.
I stamped the sentiment from the Steampunk Shoes Stamp Set using Sepia Archival. I did not emboss it. I cut it out line by line and glued it to my tag using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
I dyed some American Seam Binding first with Mustard Seed and then with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink (drying after each one). I added a little copper mica powder to the Rusty Hinge to give it a little sparkle. I added this to my tag.
Hope you enjoyed this demo if you watched. I didn't finish the tag during the show but I've finished it now and it's up for grabs. If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning it, simply become a follower (if you're not already) and leave a comment on this post. I'll draw a winner on Monday morning.
Thanks for stopping by.
