Day 2 Project - I created a tag.  Now, I'm no Tim Holtz or any of these other "fancy" artists but here is my attempt.


RECIPE: I started with stiff glossy cardstock that I cut into a tag on the Cricut using TBBM. (I'm sure of the dimensions because I am travelling.  I will post if you'd like me to when I get back.)  I then used my experimental Glimmer Mist like mixture and sprayed my paper for the flower and the tag.  The mixture was VERY simple to make and turned out well.  I used the amount of Perfect Pearl powder that I could scoop on the tip of a popsicle stick and water.  I swirled that around in a Mini-Mister and voila!  I'll do a quick tutorial next week on that.  It's SOOOOOO simple guys.  I inked the edges of the tag and started preparing the music paper for the the tag.  I used music that I copied on my printer and tore using a deckled edge ruler.  I covered it with Tea Stain Distress Ink. This was adhered to the tag using Modge Podge.  Next, I used Melin's EXCELLENT tutorial on making grudge flowers to create the flower. Here's the link.  The only difference is I don't have Copics.  I would have embossed the brad but I ran out of time and I think it looks nice though the way it is.  I stamped the swirls and embossed the sentiment on the bottom.  Now, here is where the learning curve kicked in.  I didn't realize how wet the top sentiments would be after I stamped them and they smeared a bit.  I'll embossed those next time. It says, "Let Heaven and Nature Sing."  Lastly, I added pearls for bling.  I hope you like it at least a little bit.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I enjoyed the hop and can't wait until next time.
