Our challenge at The Kraft Journal, this day after Christmas, is to try something new for the new year. Although I've made tags before, it's been a while since I've made one and I decided to throw everything but the kitchen sink onto it.
The tag base is Buff Ivory cardstock. The next layer is Light Kraft cardstock. I glued some pieces of Vintage Dictionary page on it. Then I stamped it with a musical score which I embossed with Vintage Distress embossing powder. next I added some Distress ink.
The next layer is a piece of Kraft Glassine from Tim Holtz. Babette was carrying the large pockets at Kraft Outlet at one time. I cut the pocket apart, dry embossed it and added some white ink over the raised parts. I also went around the edges of it with a white Paint Dabber.
My image is a rubberstamp from the Gorjuss Girls line that I colored with Copics. I stamped the little bear twice and raised him up on pop dots. Here's a closer view.
For embellishments I added a flower made with pieces of the kraft glassine cut from Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die. The edges have some white Puffy paint on them. I had wrote a sentiment on a White Metal Edge Grunge Tag and inked it with Vintage Photo Distress ink. There's a band of 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market seam binding in red wrapped around the upper part of the tag and a Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Flag piece covered in Buff Ivory cardstock and inked at the bottom. I added some fun eyelash fiber through an eyelet at the top of the tag and everything but the image was sprayed with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.
The Kraft Glassine is a new product for me and I look forward to using it again. It was fun to try some of the ideas Tim Holtz gave for it's use on his blog.
We'd love to see you try something new in honor of New Year's and share it with us. The link is open until 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday so come play along.
