Here's my E, F, & G tags for this months Chocolate Baroque Tag swap, pop over and have a look.
I was really rushed last month, so this month I've taken my time and planned ahead, so I have good ideas for the next few batches :)
I'm adopting the recipe idea Ive seen on a few peoples blogs, mainly because I tend to waffle ha ha.
All my tags are cut with Tim Holtz Tag die.
Tag E for Edwardian
Eccentric Edwardian Stamp set - Chocolate Baroque
Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany, Tea Stain, Vintage Photo.
Versafine - Vintage Sepia
Scrap of card and tissue paper.
I coloured up the tag, Stamped the script and clock.
Stamped the Gent image on white card and clear embossed it. Edged the cutout image with a little DI.
Stamped the book on thick card and repeated on tissue for the pages. Cut them out and assembled 'book'. I shadowed the Gent with a bit of DI and stuck down images.
Finally just added a bit of bronze cord and a grommet to the hole.
Tag F for Flurry of Florals
Assorted Chocolate Baroque Papers
Crealies creative flower dies - CL CF 02, 20 & 06
Spellbinders foliage die
Cats eyes chalk ink pads - Wisteria & Lavender
A few pearls and a bit of pink ribbon.
I coloured the tag with the cats eyes, cut out lots of flowers, coloured the petal edges with chalk inks, shaped and stuck them.
Then I just arranged them stuck them added a few leaves and pearls and a bit of ribbon.
Tag G is for Gold
Filigree Fusion stamp set - Chocolate Baroque
Crealies Dies CL CF 20 & CL CF 16
Viva Decor - Inka Gold
Ranger tarnished gold EP and Versamark
Pearls and fibres.
I cut the tag, stamped & embossed the image twice once on the tag & one on scrap for the flower, edged the tag with the marker. I cut the flower and foliage and rubbed all over with Inka Gold paint.
I coloured a few dots with the marker and coloured the pearls too, then just added the fibres.
Phew done ha ha
Its great fun and I've received four lovely tags already :) Only 19 to go ladies !
Off to try and find my camera which hasn't turned up yet from the move (nearly 12 months) but I'm so fed up of the rubbish photos off my phone ! Wish me luck.
