Wow, my last Blog post of 2008 - where has this year gone?????
I have joined in with the Objet D'Art challenge which is to alter a tag.....mmmmmm, perfect for me as I love playing about with tags!
I painted some Shabby Shutters Cracklepaint onto the tag and then let it dry. I then used Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and Peeled Paint Distress Ink and blended these over the top of the tag. I spritzed some water into my hand and flicked at the tag, so I got a nice splotchy effect.
The stamping is all done using Tim Holtz stamps by Stampers Anon. I used Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain inks for this and also used gold embossing powder for the tree and Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder for the birds. The word is mounted onto 3D foam and then I added a little Grungeboard crown, which I coloured with gold Krylon. I edged the tag with Walnut Stain and then dragged my Krylon pen around the edge to finish it off.
I added a sentiment disc, which is from the Tim Holtz Idea-0logy range but because I didn't really like the colour, I used my gold Krylon to alter it and make it all shiney and golden!
Thanks for looking and also thank you for all the lovely comments I have received this year. All that is left for me to say is a very Happy New Year to you and yours and may 2009 bring you lots of happiness.
