So, Tag 7 brings us to sticky back canvas and adirondack colour sprays - the latter of which I don't have, (well, not in these colours) but the former I do. I custom made my own colours - distress ink reinkers (I have a worn lipstick one made up with a perfect pearl powder and diluted some barn door with plain water in another mini mister) and for the leaves inked straight to the tag with a couple of greens and spritzed with a reinker/perfect pearl mixer.
Had quite a lot of trouble constructing the flower - and I don't have a hot glue gun (actually, I do, my ex left it behind all though years ago, but I am a bit wary of it so used glossy accents - lots of it!) I daren't hold the tag up as I reckon it will all fall off.......
For me, there aren't enough stickles on the petals, but I am running low and I bet Tim will be using it again, so didn't want to go overboard!
For the centre, I used one of the largest pearls out of the necklace I took apart for one of the earlier tags, as I couldn't find a button I liked that would fit in the hole I had left in the flower. I thought about filling it with beads, but couldn't face the idea of them all rolling all over the floor...... cos you know they would have done!
I used some grungepaper letters to create the "joy" - just painted them with claudine hellmuth paint, and found a couple of maya road chip flourishes, which are silver dabber painted. (direct from the bottle as it wouldn't come through the dabber... what is it with me and thick gungey paint???) Oh, by the way, does anyone know, can you dilute the distress crackle paints? They are all thick and gungey too.... any tips would be gratefully received.
I couldn't find a circle punch (I don't think I have any, at least not tiny ones) so stuck the type charm "bubble" to the 25 from the paper stack and cut round it before fitting it in the holder. This was quite a messy tag to do, but good fun. Not, so far, my favourite though! Wonder what is in store for tomorrow!!
Linking it to Artyjen's splinter group as always!
