This tag looks simple, but the background technique was like an onion - layers and layers! Didn't take too long though....
Instead of tissue paper I used strips of Tim's tissue tape for the starting point. Distress paints used were Antique Linen, Broken China, Peeled Paint and Brushed Corduroy for the background technique. I also used Brushed Corduroy Distress Marker for the shading under the chitchat stickers rather than Black Soot as it wasn't so harsh. When I brushed the multi-medium over the entire surface, the ink ran onto some of the stickers, but I didn't mind that so much.
The "live, laugh" words are chipboard pieces from my stash that I covered with TH Broken China and Peeled Paint distress daubers, along with Adirondack Gold dauber. I took the picture in my livingroom and the late afternoon winter sun was streaming through. I think that is why the words and ribbon look more pinkish than gold. Have to remember that for future pictures!
The #5 chipboard piece is covered with Stampendous Frantage Champagne Glass Glitter, edged with a bit of Gold Stickles. I added an acrylic sticker and locket for embellishments, along with acrylic numbers edged with gold paint. Finally, I spritzed the whole tag with Heritage Gold Perfect Pearls spray -there is a hint of glimmer which doesn't show in the pic. The ribbon is done by Tim's technique with gold distress paint.
