There is a new challenge at DragonsDream Tag It On and the recipe for this week is red - book pages and / or text - an embellishment and at least one real stamp. I decided to try my Spellbinders Media Mixage shields by Susan Lenart Kazmer which creates beautiful jewellery but you can also use it on a canvas or in my case on a tag.
Here you can see how i started
I cut the tag from thicker cardboard, adhered old book pages with matt medium and a thin layer of Gesso on top. I dryed everything with the heatgun and used modeling paste with a stencil on top of that. The modeling paste is dryed with the heatgun, too.
I applyed a chain to the bezels to connect them. Then glued all the embellishments on ( flowers, lace, halfpearls and metal ) with my hotglue - gun. The bezels accessory have glossy accents on the back, but the hot glue drys faster and secures them into place. A layer of Gesso on top of all these embellishments, to finish this part.
I sprayed with Ranger Colour Wash *red pepper* and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist *iridescent gold* for a slightly shimmer. While this was air drying ( couldn't use the heatgun, because the gotglue will melt ).......
...i stamped my image ( La Blanche) and used the matching bezel dies from Spellbinders smoothly with my cuttlebug
Well, to make it perfect, i used the ice resin, too. It was the first time as i normaly use glossy accents, but i wanted to try it, to see the different between these products. I would definitely use it for jewellery, because it's more clear than glossy accents and i finished with non airbubble, which never happens ( only to me? ) with glossy accents
The raised areas are finished with a touch of Inka Gold
