Industrial Chic Tag


Over at Dragons Dream TIO this week, Gabrielle has chosen the theme of Industrial Chic.  There is a recipe of 3 elements, clockwork/cogs, vintage brown and industrial imagery.  I started with a white tag, overlaid the winged dress form mask and coloured the background with raw umber pan pastel.  I then used the Tando Mask cog group at the top and bottom of the tag.  I randomly stamped the cogs and gears in timber brown stazon.  I stamped the diagram image from the TH steampunk plate down the left hand side of the tag in vintage photo distress ink.  I stamped the 3 men in timber brown stazon onto a piece of chipboard, cut them out and attached with 3d foam.  The cogs, watch parts, prestuds, pen nib etc were attached with silicone.  Fibres were added to finish.

Lovely tag, Sam!! All those different gears and cogs are lovely. Love the mask of the winged figure.
Thanks for your comment on my magical card. This was a great compliment and I grew at least an inch or two. :-)
