Dragon tag

she was making  tags in her own unique style.
I am staying with my friend Wendy who owns The Stamp Attic ....click the link to go see Wendys version......at the min and today we decided to have a play with the techniques and ideas we saw on the video.

 Now, the tags that Anna made featured quite a lot of product.....which is fair enough as it was a promotion for Prima........but that is not my thing, she also used flowers which again are not really my thing (in art work anyway....I LOVE real ones) as there are way too many around......so I decided to do "my" thing!

 Rooting about in my junk box I found this dragon charm and several Chinese coins so that set the theme for my tag! I also used some cogs cut from some scrap corrugated card, some press studs, a rusty heart, hair clips and a customs label rescued from the bin!

 The splats are Distress Stains......I might even buy one now:)

 Annas colouring method is interesting.....she adds everything and then sprays on the colour.....I find that a bit scary but interesting!

Well done Sue - you made Wendy make something - we keep trying to drag her into Sunday workshops but she keeps filling up all the spaces!!!
That's some scary spraying you've done there but it's turned out great on both tags!! They're amazing!!
How can you have managed to resist distress stains up till now?!?!?!?

This is the first good use I've ever seen for pesky bobby pins!

Really, you've created another amazing piece! The twisted wire with bead "buds" ... the layers of die cuts ... and the lush garden of metal embellishments ... delicious!

I watched the ustream after it finished using a link on Finns' website. I was inspired as well and did some crafting after a long dry spell. I didn't have any prima either but made paper flowers with tissue paper and tim tattered florals die I also made a tim holtz tape flower. I certainly had lots of fun playing. However spraying tissue paper flowers is not recommended lol. I love what you did. I think I will have another go without flowers.
