Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Wow embossing powders & Ranger size 8 Manila Tags.

Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday again, and my turn to share some inspiration using

I chose to make a tag, using the fabulous 'Time after Time' set, and once I started I just couldn't stop, lol, and ended up with 4 !!!

 Tag 1 is black, and I used 'Grunge Flourish' with Versamark, and heat embossed in Gold. I stamped the small pocket watch 5 times in Versamark  heat embossed in black, and fussy cut.

Then, using the larger pocket watch, with Versamark, heat embossed with Gold sparkle powder, and again fussy cut.

The sentiments were stamped in black onto a separate piece of card, cut out and inked around the edges using distress ink, then dipped into the gold embossing powder and heat set.

Tag number 2, using a cream tag, I blended the background with distress inks, stamped using the numbers and small pocket watches and cogs. I stamped the larger pocket watch, wings and sentiment onto a separate piece of card, and fussy cut them.

I coloured the wings using water colour pencils and blended with water, used distress inks to age the face then added crackle medium,

and when it was dry, went over all the edges with gilding wax.

Tag 3, I mixed things up a bit with this one and added the fabulous
 'Vintage Car', stamped in Versamark, heat embossed in Red Sparkle powder, and fussy cut,

I used the shattered glass stamp from the set for the background, with a line of numbers down one side, The wings were coloured as before and added to the sentiment which was stamped in black and heat embossed in clear.

Stickles were used to brighten some of the edges.

And lastly Tag 4. Colouring and stamping the background, stamping 2 large watches, fussy cutting, masking so that I could stamp the faces with numbers and cogs, and stamping a sentiment. Blue glitter and gilding wax was added around all the edges for a bit of bling !!!
