On to the details of this tag. The tag base was covered with a sheet from an old book and then tape was applied and ripped off to remove part of the print . Then it was masked and misted with the Vintage Photo/Perfect Pearls (that I often refer to as my homemade glimmer mist).
I used Metal Foil Tape Sheets to cover the GrungeBoard letters. Check out Day 10 here for the metal technique. Then I dripped Caramel alcohol ink on the metal and let it run all over it. I had the brilliant idea of painting the raised letters with the gold mixative, but some of the gold ran off and onto the base. So I added more Caramel and pretty soon the gold mixative was running all over the base. I gave up on trying to correct it and decided that I LOVED the way it looked - a happy accident that I couldn't repeat in a million years - LOL. Then I repeated the same mixing of the caramel alcohol ink and gold mixative on the strip of acrylic that I cut with the On the Edge Snow Flurries die.
I added a faux etched fragment done with the pine cone stamp from the Tim Holtz Mini Holidays 3 set, some corrugated cardboard stars that I also brushed with the gold mixative.
