Tag 6 - Rebelling Today!!

I've created a tag inspired by Tim's design today but - shock, horror - I really didn't like the effect of using those garish colours over the metal - I'm not sure if I'll be shunned by the Distress Community but it really wasn't my thing (sorry Tim!) Here's my alternative:


I've started out the same with the ornament embossing folder and foil stuck to card but then I've alcohol inked with four separate colours, crimped the edges, added a bit of bling and some tissue tape and it's much more 'me' than copying the original would have been! A little tip for getting the different areas different colours is to use individual bits of felt - one for each colour as you can keep distinct areas of colour rather than the blended look you get when you add the colours to the same felt. Hope you don't disaprove too much of my rebellious nature today!! JulieD

  1. Art should be original Julie! You did a great job! I embossed my metal foil tape on yesterdays tag and used alcohol inks. I've never tried it with paint and embossing powder so I will try todays technique but I think your tag today came out wonderfully.

  5. Disapprove? I much prefer yours today! I too was quite taken aback at the colors of todays tags and quickly realized I'd have to put my own spin using earthier colors - and you've already done it!! This is really quite lovely and now I'm inspired :-)
