Birthday Tag


For a friend.

The BP is a digital mix from Fathers and Fedoras by Summer Driggs.

I started off with a plain manila tag,  I painted a base coat of cheapo gold paint .....stamped the Penny Black music with Vintage Photo on to a strip of micropore tape, stuck it down one side.....the greeting on the other side was printed on to Safmat.....very handy when you want to personalise or don't have an appropriate stamp.
 I used Vintage Photo DI around the edges and then decided to top this with some Crackle Accents...hmmm....this didn't really work....after drying overnight the bottom corner was peeling off but saved it by sticking it back down with glossy accents. My guess is that it was rejected by the gold paint.
The monogram, from a very old set bought years ago is stamped with pigment ink and heat embossed with clear's got a nice shine IRL.
I can't remember where the little calendar came from :( it is fixed with foam tape

Tag fixed with a double layer of foam pads at the top and glossy accents (love this stuff) at the bottom

The sepia coloured tag stands out so nicely against the rich blues of the background Irene.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
