Meta-tag-lica

...Did you see what I did there...Metalica...and Tag...cos...today's Tim Tag is made up using metal...nope? Well, I got it anyway LOL The details on how to make today's tag is on Tim's Blog...and I had a right old pain with this one! I had all the letters needed...but the aluminium foil I had was waaay too thin and kept puncturing...so I ended up using Ten Second Studio metal with Humungo tape...and refining it all by hand...which made my poorly wrist hurt loads but I think it is worth it.




I haven't got those Alcohol Ink pens...so I masked off each section and used felt and fingers to get the Alcohol Inks onto the metal...you should see the state of my hands now....loverly!! I am up to date with the tags so am off to do some distressing now...all will be revealed tomorrow :O))

Wow... you're quick! :) Looks FAB
Great take on the tag -- technical difficulties and all -- I can just picture your hands! LOL

I don't have that metal .. but I do have a sheet of bronze that I will try to manipulate. Will be interesting! Can't wait to play.

Thank you for telling me how I'm gong to do this with only 3 pens, one of which is full of blending solution!

It looks wonderful. I think it was worth the aching wrist. But then it's not my wrist, is it?
