I wasn't sure which stamps I wanted to use but as I was going through them I decided on the saxophone from Carved Instrament because my grandson plays the sax.
For the first technique, tissue tape resist, I placed the music tissue tape from Symphony on the tag & stamped the saxophone in Ranger Black Archival Ink. The heart from Rockstar is stamped in the same ink over tissue tape from Sketchbook. I also used stamps from Urban Chic & in the archival Ink.
I then used modeling paste with 3 different layering stencils, Numbered, Speckled & Arrows & let it dry.
My grandson's favorite colors are bright blue & bright green so I went with Mermaid Lagoon & Twisted Citron. Of course I had to add a splash of Abandoned Coral. Once I dabbed the color on I sprayed it with a little water & blotted slightly with a paper towel. Notice how the tissue tape didn't absorb the ink & the Archival Ink didn't fade or smear because it's water proof! Once it was dry, I sprayed it with tarnished brass mica spray. I also used a distresser on the edges then inked it in frayed burlap.
The 2nd technique was making flowers with the Tattered Floral Dies. I die cut 3 roses & several leaves cut from Idea-olgy Yuletide 8x8 Paper. I then used Mermaid Lagoon on the roses & Twisted Citron on the leaves. They're hot glued to the tag.
I took a piece of burlap & tied it in the middle with a piece that had frayed off. then added using a loop pin . The mirror star was inked with mushroom alcohol ink. I decided to add a little more brass mica spray & I really like how it looks on the star (see previous photo).
The crinkle ribbon was inked with the Mermaid Lagoon & Twisted Citron then I tied a loose knot half way down.
