Today I have a quick and simple tag to share with you, using Andy's new Lava Paste, Embossing Powder and Mixed Media Transfers. I absolutely love all of these products, and they are super easy to use.
I added some of Andy's fab transfers in places on the tag, not using all of the transfer but taking it over the edges. It stood out a bit as my background was quite glossy, and the transfers have a more matte background, so I added some purple ink across the top of the tag to blend the transfers in. You can still see them perfectly through it.
I had a wooden skull from Halloween last year, so decided to use it, and applied a layer of Lava Paste and heated. It gave fantastic texture! To make it stand out even more, I pushed the skull into my embossing ink pad, and embossed with Super Nova embossing powder.
The edge of the tag got the same treatment. I also added a wash of Dioxazine Purple to the skull so it sank into the crevices of the texture.
Andy's transfers work equally well straight onto Cardstock, so I used the word Carnival, and cut out and inked with a little purple ink, and mounted on the tag. A dark purple ribbon was added to finish.
Hope it gives you some inspiration. x
