A Tag for Tuesday Taggers.

Sunday's are the days when I get the most uninterupted time to play in my craftroom. Apart from cooking Sunday Dinner, which I can do on automatic pilot now, the rest of the day generally is mine!! Today I was sitting with this little lot in front of me, thinking about this week's Tuesday Taggers Challenge of "Texture". I have already entered a Handbag charm made with inchies, so I don't know if I can enter anything else, but I thought it was time I actually made a tag......

So I used the textured Grunge board and distress inks to make a Key Tag !
I started by cutting out a shape from the grunge board, threading a key ring onto it and colouring it using distress inks with cut and dry foam.

Then I added a metal sentiment tag, an inchie, some grunge paper flowers,and ribbons.

A few more buttons, a curtain ring, some stamping with Stayzon Ink, tissue paper, a skeleton leaf, and yet more ribbon.....

Then I folded the tag in half using very strong adhesive between the two faces.

Then diamond glaze and crackle glaze to stop the ink moving if the tag got wet. ......and to hold the embellishments securely.

Finally I punched some holes on two diagonally opposite corners using my cropodile and used yet more ribbon to sew through one set of holes, and used eyelets in the opposite corner, this was done partly to ensure that the tag does not split open and partly just because .......they were sitting on my

Finished at last.....Pheeew !!!

Have we had a challenge yet to see how many techniques etc we can get into one project ?

All that's left to do is to see if I can enter it into this weeks challenge..... and decide who might end up owning this little treasure.

Bye for now
