I have thrown everything under the sun at these two tags! I started off by adding the following DecoArt products, clear crackle, matte medium and white crackle paint. I smeared them all over the tags.
Next I used the heat tool and made all the above products bubble to create some texture. I painted the tag with chalky finish paint in lace, then dazzling metallic silver sage, then black shimmer. Next I added metallic silver from the Media range along with a coat of paynes grey. Finally I added gold, blue, violet and magenta interference paints again from the media range.
This was done in exactly the same way except instead of the paynes grey I used carbon black and as you can see, the interference paints show up much better on a darker surface, hopefully you can see the texture.
I took a couple of cardboard mounts and added a mix of ultra matte varnish and texture sand paste. I like to add some of the varnish to the sand paste as I find it helps it stick to the project better.
Once dried, I added paynes grey, transparent yellow iron oxide, quinacridone violet and magenta and interference violet all from the DecoArt Media range.

And finally I decorated them with metal embellishments.
I had forgotten about the strips of metal that I bought at the Version Scrap show in Paris way back when.
And the mini bottle tops with the letters I got this year from Hobby Lobby.
All products are from the DecoArt range.
