I decided that my tags would make a
pretty good windmill!! (Regulars will be saying there Vee goes again!)
Here is what I did to make one.
I wanted the larger black tag as base and
four smaller kraft tags as sails.
I used the masks to emboss the tags in the Grand Calibur.
The black tag with the brick effect and the kraft tags with the cogs.
I inked all the tags with the various distress inks.
I then brushed on green patina perfect pearls and used
a rough brush brush to apply and scrape.
I mixed some water and perfect pearls in a spritzer bottle
and sprayed all the tags.
I used a heat tool to dry tags to distress them a bit more.
I assembled and used a cog,
black diecut flower and small bloom to finish.
The diecut flower was already in my diecuts tray but I can tell it was
cut using Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals. I wanted it to
remain undistressed for the contrast. (Love juxtaposition)
The small bloom may have been from Spellbinders
Bitty Blossoms die but I can't be sure as I
have squashed it a lot!
I would like to enter this into the challenge at
