Another Tag for Tuesday Taggers.

Hi everyone. I've just finished making a tag!!.. although it could be masquerading as a bookmark.. for this week's challenge over at Tuesday Taggers. The theme this week is Swirls and Curls.

I even managed to use a few techniques that I didn't use on my Key Tag.

The tag is double layered, the bottom layer is a matt coated card stock and the top layer is acetate. I have used a versamark resist technique and brayer to stamp the coated card with the "Swirly Bird" stamp from Dimension Fourth, I also made a mask of the bird and then overstamped some swirly corners.

The Swirly Bird was also Stamped onto the acetate using stayzon, and a few of the design elements highlighted by using a clear glue and fine glitter on the reverse side.

Top Tip..... do not cut your acetate to match your backing card until you have positioned the image on the acetate directly over the image on the base card, secure in place with low tack tape and then trim.

The heart lace strip has been punched out of cream card using a Martha Stewart Edging punch, and adhered to the card layer, some buttons and a few of the small hearts from the punched design have been glued on top of the acetate to add dimension.

The two layers are held together by an eyelet which has then had some fibres tied through it (including some curly ones). Job done. I hope you like it.

I'll be back later.
