Hey there crafters it's Tasha here and I have this embellished tag to share with you. I've used all sorts of crafty goodies from faiths shop so let's get into it!!!
Above you can see I have taken a Manila tag and inked the edges with Tim holtz - aged mahogany and while the ink is still wet I have sprinkled some clear - fine embossing powder around the edges and then heat set it with my heat gun. I've done the same with the BoBunny pattern paper. This gives a little texture....a little interest...strengthens the edges....intensifies the color of the ink and is just FUN!
Don't forget you can cut your metal fillagrees, and I have punched a hole in one with my crop-a-idle. Do this at your own risk....but it does work.
Next I just start building up all the elements to get the look I want....(which is hardly ever the look I first had in my mind) be sure to use E6000 when adhering metal.
