What a month, had a fab holiday in the US, Las Vegas, San Francisco and New York, my daughter's 18th birthday and her A level results and the realisation she is going to university in 20 days time!!!!
It's no wonder I'm a little late with my attempt at the tag for this month but here we go.
Once the paste had dried I used dusty concord, shaded lilac and broken china distress stain to marble the tag and to filled in the gaps with a little more broken china. A brisk rub with dusty concord and a distress tool around the edges and the colour was done. I like the way the grunge paste resists the ink to a degree giving a faded look to the 'coffee rings'. Any stain left on the non-stick craft sheet was mopped up with some seam binding.
I die cut the Weathered Clock from Engraving Art copper board and rubbed with Tim's sanding tool to reveal the metallic copper core. The good times banner is some acetate that I put through an embossing machine with the Authentic set of shadow press words. I then rubbed black soot distress paint across and wiped off the excess so the word popped out. This was then attached to the tag with staples.
I painted an Ideaology word band with some dusty concord distress paint, again wiping off the excess and attached with some twine. The seam binding that I dyed earlier was tied in a bow at the top.
Whew, what a month. I don't think September is going to be any less busy but that's life!
