Rolling Recipe Tag 12

Trying to play catch up with these tags, I left off at Tag 6 and so have another 5 to do to complete the set. This is Tag 12.

This weeks challenge was to make a tag with the following:
  1. Gems
  2. A stamped image of a face
  3. Eggs

I cut the basic tag from white cardstock and adhered a torn page from an old book at the bottom. I then applied pumice stone Distress Ink to the top of the tag and around the lower edges with cut'n'dry foam. I then stamped onto the background with a music stamp (?) in crushed olive Distress Ink.

I then used a leaf stamp from Paper Artsy and stamped this repeatedly in pumice stone & crushed olive Distress ink as shown. The main image of a face is also from Paper Artsy and this was stamped on white card in Versamark and heat embossed with detail black embossing powder before colouring in with distress inks and a waterbrush. This was trimmed out and applied with glue stick.

The eggs (Paper Artsy) were stamped on white card in onyx black Versafine and coloured in similar colours of distress as before. These were trimmed out and applied on a single large glue dot.
The scalloped edge was made using a Martha Stewart punch, white card and more crushed olive Distress Ink and was applied with glue stick at the bottom of the tag. I adhered 3 flat backed gems in peridot to this strip. The word stamp (Paper Artsy) was stamped directly in onyx black Versafine as shown.

Finally a cream eyelet was applied with the crop-a-dile and some fibres tied through the hole.

Love those new colours of Distress Inks by Tim Holtz & Ranger!
