Hi Bloggers.

I have a tag for you today -

I covered a Scalloped MDF Tag with White Gesso. I popped a little CS Pearl Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I spritzed a little CS Egyptian Blue Mister and mixed to create my own colour of Shimmer Paint. I used this to paint both sides and the edges of my tag.

I then popped the tag in a large box and placed the Distressed Dots Mask on top. I spritzed through it with Phill Martin's CS Titanium Mister.

Once dry, I stamped one of the designs from Lisa Horton's Tile Stamps - Set 2 using Jet Black Archival.

I cut the Spellbinders Cascading Circles Die out of Black Card and added it to my tag using CS Glue. It's bigger than the tag so I trimmed off the excess using scissors. I then covered my design with Clear Perfect Medium, added CS Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and heat set using the Ranger Heat Tool. I repeated this twice more to give a lovely glossy finish. During the 3rd application, I also sprinkled some Sparkle Star CS Diamond Frost so thit became encased in the embossed finish.

I cut A R T out of Black Card using Spellbinders Donna's Alpha Grand Die Set. I added some Patina CS Gilding Wax.

I added a Vintage Metal Embellishment to a Dazzler Setting. Once the glue was set, I painted them with Black Gesso. Once that was dry, I rubbed some Patina Gilding Wax over.

I spritzed some Antique Green and Egyptian Blue Misters onto my Craft Sheet and ran some Blue White American Seam Binding through it. I dried it using my Heat Tool and added it to my tag.
