This is my version of Tag 2
I started this tag by mixing Frayed Burlap,Picket Fence and tarnished brass DS onto a mat and pulled the tag through it. The result was nice but a bit dark so I gave it another drag with just the picket fence. I lost some of the shimmer of the gold so then I spritzed it with Tattered Angels iridescent glimmer mist (had this years and its still spraying without clogging up).
I used Potting soil archival to stamp the country scene in the centre which is a one from Creative Expressions on the Christmas Post Plate. I then masked this off and over stamped various sizes of trees around the scene with 1st & 2nd generation to get a variation in colours.
Mr Stag is a Creatable die which I embossed with Ranger sticky embossing Powder and used gilding flakes over the top. I gave him a round eye with a little black gem but it looked wrong as deer eyes are oval shaped so his eye is actually a heart shaped gem chopped in half with scissors. The sentiment stamp is from Crafty Individuals and the star stamp was a freebie from a Craft magazine. The stars were cut free hand and edged with gold emboss.
I used Frantage Champagne Crushed Glass on some of the corners and edges to give it a bit of extra sparkle against the misty neutrals of the background, and a little bit of muslin and lace completed the effect.
So there we are 2 down 10 to go Thank you for your visit and do pop back very soon for the next instalment.
