These were created thanks to information from Joy (Lotstodo Forum) and inspiration from Sheena Douglass demonstrating on a C&C tv show yesterday which was re-run last night.
I went my own way with them as all I had that she was using was the black soot distressed ink pad!!! I inked adirondack wild plum and mustard coloured distressed ink onto a craft mat and spritzed with water. Using a paint brush I added in some of the chalky/paint highly pigmented with mica from the silkies I got in Harrogate (remember, the ones that look like nail varnish!!). I swooshed the tags in the mixture to get a background. Using black soot I stamped various images onto the tags (again purchased at Harrogate, the stamps, not the tags). I clear embossed certain images, including the hand and the bottom eye. I mixed a bit of blue perfect pearls with water to make a paste and coloured in the outer eye and part of the hand (the swirl and a finger). I roughed up the edges of the tag with a paper distresser and inked them with black soot. Added an eyelet and fibres. You might have to enlarge the picture to see it all in detail.
Thanks Joy and Sheena, really pleased with the way these have turned out so am entering them into this weeks Tuesday Taggers challenge.
