Cheerio Chaps!

Hi Bloggers.

I have a tag for you today which features the gorgeous Tarnished Gold CS Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals -

I started with my background card which was a piece of Milk Card with some mopped up waste Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink on it. I dusted with an Anti-Staic Pad and stamped the image from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 3 Cheers for Art Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I stamped sentiment from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Parisian Art Stamp Set using Potting Soil Archival. I edged with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide using a Woodware Blend-It Tool.

I edged a Tag Toppers Art Part with Antique Gold Shimmer Paint. I then applied a good coating of Clear Perfect Medium on the top. I added CS Tarnished Gold Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals and set using a Low Speed Heat Tool. It's best only to do one coat to keep the definition of the mixed crystals.

I glued the topper to the tag using CS Glue. I trimmed the ends of my card in line with the top of the Tag Topper. I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the hole in my tag through the Tag Topper and added some London Tan American Seam Binding.

I set the Efcolor Stove up and added some CS Clear and Tarnished Gold Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals to a Melt-It Case. I popped it onto the stove platform, added the lid and left to melt. Once moulten, I poured it into a mould that I made from Ranger Mold-n-Pour (I usually fill a few in a session). After a couple of minutes I removed my embellishment from the mould and added it to my tag using a little Hi-Tack Tape and a little CS Glue.

Thanks for stopping by.
