...I've been having a little play with a few "leftovers" that have been lurking on my desk and popped a quick tag together. The base of the tag came from a demo thingy I did a few weeks ago - Ranger's gorgeous Texture Paste through Tim's Flourish Layering Stencil and then a liberal spritz of Abandoned Coral, Frayed Burlap and Antique Linen Distress Spray Stains. I love how the Texture Paste just sucks that colour up.
I had a bit of a destructive session a few weeks ago - butchering old tags from a few years ago that were just sitting, unloved, in the garage. I nicked all the embellies off them and binned the base tags... and blimey, I have a box full of embellies to re-use. The Idea-ology Foliage came off a tag I made in 2010! I remember I had painted the Foliage with Traditional Tan paint and then scraped off the edgey bits to reveal the metal. It got a bit bent as I was ripping it off its original home, but hey, that adds to the distressed look!
The butterfly had been stamped a few weeks ago and coloured with Abandoned Coral and Aged Mahogany Sprays... I wasn't happy with it at the time so I chucked it to one side... but for this tag, perfect match colour wise! I added an Idea-ology Lock with a Resin Rose to the centre... popped him onto an Industrious Sticker frame (which I changed the colour of with a smidge of Treasure Gold and Alcohol Ink) and I die cut the word (Tim's new thinlets) and popped that on with another couple of Resin Roses and voila, a leftovers tag finished.
That's all from me for today - I will be back tomorrow with a new CC3 challenge entry... wait til you see what we're playing with this week! Thanks for looking, have a goodly day!
