'Tagtastic' Eternal Tag by Nikki K.

Good Morning all,

I'm really happy to be on Andy's blog today sharing a tag I made in blues and greens, with just a touch of Rust.  The tag is from Andy's Tagtastic Kit, and I wanted to give it a different look.

I embossed the tag with a script embossing folder firstly, then painted it white.  On top of this I added several colours of blue-greens, in layers and washes, to build up the background.  Some Patina Antiquing Cream was splashed over to give a matt aspect.

I used one of Andy's stamps, Texture, to stamp the background with, and also some script.

The Heart was given a similar treatment to the background, layering colours and stamping, and then each piece was edged in white to give definition.

The bolts, screws and book plate were given a rust treatment, and then antiqued.  I ran some white round the edge of the tag with my finger.  A bit of rusty wire was added as a little hanger, which I kind of bent into the top of a heart shape.  The label was stamped and aged with a wash of colour.

I hope you like it, don't forget to check out the rest of Andy's team's work on the blog.

Best Wishes,

Nikki K.
