I promised last week to share the last set of "twin" tags I made at my stamp camp a few weeks ago, but life took over and I never got to it. Hubby Jack had surgery last week so I had my nurse's hat on. All went well, with a few bumps in the road, but he's on the mend.
This set of twin tags was started by creating backgrounds with Dylusions ink sprays (big surprise, right? LOL). I used several colors - purple, blue, turquoise and pink - all from the original Dylusions U.K. line of inks, but the new Ranger colors would be equally gorgeous!
Then I used stamps from Tim Holtz' Mixed Media set - the "bubble wrap" stamp with white paint dabber down the side of each tag, over-stamped with the stenciled numbers stamp from Tim's Little Labels set in jet black archival, and back to the Mixed Media set for the chicken wire stamp in Ranger's deep purple archival ink.
The sentiment from Tim's Stuff to Say set was stamped down the opposite side of each tag, and then stamped again on white card stock, cutting out specific words and gluing them over the image stamped directly on the tag to highlight them.
I added several silver charms (Blue Moon) and beads down the middle of each tag - I discovered the BEST glue... Gorilla Glue. It comes in little tubes like crazy glue, and it sets even the heaviest embellishments in seconds! Love it!
To top things off, my good friend Donna gave me the *perfect* ribbon for these tags - the colors were a perfect match!
Hope you enjoyed the last of the twin tags. I had such fun making them!
