A Couple of Tags

Finally felt okay enough to be able to move some stash around to get to other stuff and ended up making these two tags. I've been wanting to do something like this for a few weeks now.

I embossed the card using a cog folder, coloured it in silver Decoart media paint and then rubbed over it with black carbon media paint.

The top half is white embossed and coloured with carbon black media paint and wiped back.

Crackle paint on the heart and covered with black antiquing cream and wiped back.

Pretty much did the same with this one except I used gold and transparent yellow oxide for the embossed background and again I tinted it with carbon black Decoart media paint.

The embossed stamping was coloured with platinum silver embossing powder. I used a dirty wash for the background and added a wooden cog.

All products used are from the DecoArt media range.

Love both these tags Sam. The texture is fabulous and gorgeous crackle on the heart. I really like how there's a definite edge to the embossed card against the finer embossed areas. That really creates a look of depth.

Glad you felt up to doing a bit more.

love these - so glad your ribs are finally letting you move more easily (and lift your heavy boxes of stash about!) Love the ruler background on the second tag.

So pleased you are feeling well enough to do something again Sam. These are terrific tags and very inspiring as I haven't used metal techniques for ages

Take care

Love Chrissie xx

Great texture from the embossed card - love the torn away look too. Sounds as though you've been under the cosh - glad to hear you're on the move again and hope you'll feel fully better soon.

really striking, very Victorian steam punkish.
