Another Tag.
This tag came all the way from Australia! My sister Dot brought her Grand daughters lots of clothes over for christmas, but wrapped them up when she got here. Anyway I happen to see the tags that were on them and commented that I could 'do something with them' so my Sis took them all off and I was then the proud owner of 6 lovely thick chipboard tags along with the chains that attached them to the clothes! (sad I know but I don't get out much!) And when she explained to her daughter why the clothes didn't have tags she (my neice) said she had had loads of new clothes for Christmas and she gave me those tags too! ( lovely designer tags, in felt and canvas and organzer!)
Back to the tag!
The background of the tag was shiny so I first sanded it. Then scrapped on some black acrylic paint and left it to dry. I then used Pearl-ex in purple and rubbed it on (it stuck to the paint even though it was dry) I did seal it with hairspray too. Then I stamped it with a swirly stamp in black.
The beads are on a ribbon and attached with tape ( the really sticky one with the red backing)
The eyelet is from We R Memory Keepers and the chain is what came with the tag.
The fairy is from a template covered in metal (embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder 'words') and toned down with Aqua dabber paint. Face is a moon moulded from Hearty clay and coloured with interference perfect pearls. The wings (Crafty Individuals) are stamped onto acetate with Staz on and Angelina fibres at the back.

Love this, the 'fairy' is brilliant! I save clothes tags too, usually off my son's clothes that he cuts off and leaves lying around! You could call me a magpie I suppose! xx
