Here is a tag I made to enter the One Word Wonder over on Mad Crafters Giggles on Facebook.
The word today was butterfly - the winner picks the next word.
I tried to use a crackle technique on the tag but it didn't work very well.
I painted the tag with some metallic purple acrylic paint, applied the crackle medium, then applied a coat of silver acrylic paint. It did crackle a little but not how I wanted.
I went around the edge of the tag with some frayed burlap distress ink.
I stamped the image from, which was part of an A4 sheet from Chocolate Baroque - Punky Romance, onto some tissue paper using black archival ink, applied onto the tag.
Went around the edge with some gold leaf Rub 'N' Buff, then stamped the stitching around the edges of the tag.
Finally coloured in the butterflies using Cosmic Shimmer watercolours.
