Day 10 of Tim's tags

Day 10 of Tim's tags: I really love working with metal foils and sheets, but adding the grungeboard under it, just added such a nice dimension. I'll usually just dry emboss into it or run it through my Cuttlebug with a stencil I might have made or the embossing folders.

The tag is much brighter in real life. I scanned it so it didn't get the reflective light you get in real life.

So I used glossy accents to adhere my Mini Grungeboard letters and accents to my tag. Then put the metal electrical adhesive backed tape (didn't have Tim's type of metal) over it. It wasn't as wide as my tag so I put down two strips making sure they overlapped where I would have created a faux separation line. Burnished well with a paper stump, then with the large head of a stylus. I then added decorative marks/patterns with a smaller stylus. Painted on my alcohol inks (red pepper, lettuce, butterscotch, pool & clover). Lightly sanded the high points to bring the silver color back, then used Rub-Ons (a blackish color) and wiped excess off with a soft cloth. Added a bunch of holographic stickers (small dots and diamonds) along the color separation lines.

Tied a red ribbon and then added a bunch of red curling ribbon for pizzazz.

Hi Yogi -

Great tag,love your color choices. I also don't have the metal Tim used. I have the adhesive backed silver metal tape that is used for duct work, so I will try that. I think I am going to use coasters instead of a tag and turn them into little books.
