Day 4 of Tim's Tags

Day 4 of Tim's tags: I'm not really into charms, but had fun making this one. It's also another sponged background. And the image inside the charm was done with the Custom colored felt stamp pad.

Sponged various Distress pads onto my white cardsock (Broken China, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Pine Needles). Rubber stamped various images from (Fancy Pants Designs "Blissful Season #773") with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed them.

For the charm, I inked up a small section of the holly leaf rubber stamp (Peddler's Pack Stampworks "Holy Sprig") with Archival Black and stamped onto my felt pad. I then colored the solid stamped areas with Distress Re-Inkers Pine Needles & Fired Brick. Cleaned my rubber stamp and then inked it on the custom pad and stamped onto white cardstock. Cut my small square for my charm.

PS: I mentioned in a previous post, I had tried the crackle on clear plastic, and it didn't work. Well it did a bit. It lightly crackled the plastic, but the paste itself just brushed off. I had done this in the lid of a multi brad pack, so I cut out one of the little squares to use for my charm. Sprinkled some Be Creative "Sugar Beads" into the charm. Adhered my stamped design to the back with some Glossy Accents, and when dry put a decorated paper backing on it. Used copper foil to go around my charm and added a scalloped foil border, which I hung hand made paper beads from. Added a book corner to the top of the charm, then hung it from the red polka dotted ribbon with various fishing lure hardware.

VEry nice! I tried out the alcohol ink making plaids today for my Christmas cards. He does a good job on techniques, almost as good as you! :)
