Tag Along: Tag #19 and Simon Monday Challenge

Morning crafty friends (:o)
It seems to be a tag week for me and don't you wonder about my unusual daily posting? Actually hubby had an operation at his shoulder yesterday and i'm playing nurse for this week. That's why i also took an off - the - cuff decision and booked the new Online Workshop *Punk Fiction* with Michael DeMeng, i'll show you later on if it isn't too creepy for this space (:o) Otherwise you'll have to connect me on Facebook to watch my albums there.
My blogger friend Rosie left me a notice with her comment on my Tim tag yesterday, that there's another tag challenge she's hosting at Tag Along with the same theme. Well, i went into my craftroom and created a new tag just because i love it to create just for fun. This time i had an idea at the beginning, but while i was creating it didn't went out as i thought it will be. But that's exactly why i love creating tags. If something isn't working, i can always change my mind and it helps me avoiding mistakes on bigger objects. I'll also enter this tag to Simon Monday Challenge as the theme ist *Blues* for this week




And here is some of my *Work in progress*


I covered a tag with aluminium foil


embossed


Used Distress Stain antiqued bronze on top


Covered the the tag with a mix of patinas.


I had the idea, that the bronze colour will show thru after sanding but it didn't happened. So i layered some bronze stain on top and wiped a bit off.


Same process to the ticket but without embossing


Actually i don't wanted to go for a dark colour. I've tryed stamping over the patina onto the ticket but it also didn't worked neither with StazOn. I turned out *mushy* but the best part was, that i could wipe it off with StazOn StampCleaner. I applyed a layer of DecoArt Faux Finish to both, the tag and the ticket and after drytime a thin layer of Gesso to get a crisp background for stamping. And it worked as you can see on the picture below.


Prepared the metal embellishments with Gesso


These pieces are then treated with Tattered Angels Chalkboard *Decadence* and Glimmer Glaze *Saffron*


Also changed the colour of the flowers from green to blue with Glimmer Mist and a layer of Gesso underneath


Assembling with the hotglue gun, a little bit more paint here and there... on some spots


The finished tag and some details





Hope you like it!

Thanks for your appreciated comments

Hope your husband recovers well, but I'm happy it gives you some time at home to have a little play too!!

What a brilliant tag - the patina effect over the embossed metal is a genius background... I definitely want to try that (funny, was thinking something along these lines only last night, but thinking alcohol inks)...

And how cool to create a stamping surface over the top - the Faux Finish sounds like a useful thing.

Brilliant inspiration, thank you!

Wow Elly! Your tag is gorgeous! There are alot of steps that you've done to create such a beautiful background. I love the embossed metal and how you've colored it with the Vintaj colors. It looks amazing! I also love the metal pieces and the stamped steampunk lady. Very cool! The addition of the fabric swatch and the wings on the other side really do a nice job of balancing out your desing. Love it! Thanks for sharing your always amazing art with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy
