So I made some tags (well they are the same size as the tags I have but I haven't punched a hole in the top or cut off the 'shoulders').
This 'tag' has Tims bird and cage and swirl all in black card, the cage was spritzed with Cosmic Shimmers in blues and purples and some Viva Inca Gold paint in gold was added when dry.
The background is corrugated card with the same background card as the other two (a bit of a theme going on here). Viva Inca Gold in gold around the edges.
The cage etc were attached with glue to the background. Then just add an adage ticket.
In this tag the background was made by running the card through the Big Shot in an embossing folder, then using Distress ink and a blending tool to enhance the detail in a couple of different colours.
The bottom corner is an image transfer (a piece of patterned card 'glued' face down (I used Claudines multi medium gel) burnished and dried then wetted and rubbed until the pattern appears.
Add an Adage ticket (Tims)
Then Paper Artsy stamps to finish off.
This one has background card swiped over with a white ink pad (just to tone down and age it)and edged in Distress ink (concord) then I cut int to my Tim Holtz lost and found pad (finally and with a lump in my throat) to get the photos to go in the film strip also Tims, added a flourish (Tims) and then the bird and finally a 'ticket' stamped in black archival.
