Imagination Tag



Here's a tag I just finished today and it's inspired by a package of fun stuff that I won from Wendy on the new yahoo group EverythingWendyVecchi. The package included the new Rock Candy Crackle paint and the new Rock Candy Distress Stickles... woohoo!!! I started the tag with a technique that Wendy Vecchi recently posted on her blog called pigments and pearls and for that I used Adirondack pigment inks sail boat blue and bottle along with Perfect Pearls perfect gold mixed in a mini mister bottle. After the background was dry I coated the whole tag with Rock Candy crackle paint and let that dry, then around the edges I rubbed on Distress Ink peeled paint working it into the cracks and then wiping it off the top with a damp cloth. Stamped the quote (Tim Holtz) on with Archival ink jet black. Punched two flowers from grungepaper, colored them with Distress Ink broken china, sprayed them with the gold perfect pearls spray, added gold paint around the edges, layered them with some Ideology floral pieces and attached it to the tag. Then I put Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the petal of the top flower and made some swirls coming out from the flower with Peeled Paint Distress Stickles. Lastly I added some ribbon to the top attaching it using the mini attacher and added a trinket pin that says Ideas.
