I had so much fun creating thes fun and funky tags! I used Graphic 45’s new collection, Voyage Beneath the Sea for my papers and embellished with Creative Embellishments new Steampunk chippies. These are sooo cool!!
For this first tag, I used a Steampunk Mermaid (there are 4 different ones to choose from) as the centerpiece of my tag. I painted her body with Lindy’s Frosty Forest Green mist and her hair with Silks and black acrylic paint. Mist works well as a coloring agent on detailed chippies because it does not clog up the etched lines like paint does.. Even thought it’s colored, you can still see the plated details on the mermaid’s body. Her top hat is heat embossed with Lindy’s midnight gold. The cogs are embossed with Stampendous aged gold.
I added chipboard seaweed from Creative Embellishments to enhance my underwater scene and finished it off with pretty Petaloo blooms. In this photo you can see the dimension I created by using foam strips to pop up the seahorse background and foam squares on the mermaid.
