I love making tags! They are such fun little pieces of art and are great for playing around with new techniques. Alot of people ask me what do you do with a tag? The obvious answer of course, is to attach to a gift but there are so many other things you can do with them. Give them to your special friends, just like you would a card, hang them in your studio so you can see and enjoy them, attach to a layout, make a card base and attach, turn into an art piece by framing, see the possibilities?
Here’s a tag using traditional Halloween colors.
Love the spider webs, I heat embossed it with Stampendous aged silver.. The spider is Jolee’s.
I had so much fun making this tag, it just makes me smile and you know what I’m going to do with it? I’m going to hang it on a corkboard that I have right beside my desk and enjoy it! I took our Steampunk Heart and Wings and heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Antiquities in tanzanite and layered a fussy cut image from Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection over it. Then I did a two part embossing on one of our Steampunk Skulls. I used Stampendous aged gold for the gears and Ranger Antiquities cement for the face. I backed the skull with some of G45 paper from Steampunk Spells and layered over the wings. He’s not too spooky, but he sure is cute with his infectious smile! LOL!
