A Couple of Tags

Last night was "Craft Club Night" and making a tag was the project of the day. We had a few laughs as always and I had to wait until I got home to add the final touch to mine. I did not take my cropodile and accessories and felt this was what I wanted to finish the hat off. So in through the door and get to it ..........
Using papers from a CD (kindly supplied by this week's lead member, Pam) a couple of stamps from De Stempelwinkel, TH diecuts, plenty of distress inks, a scrap of ribbon and those rivets that I had to wait for, the tag was born. We all had similar papers but each tag was so different. A great night Pam, Thank you.

Next up a tag using a resist technique.

Loads of different colours loaded onto a tag. Images from the "Free your Imagination" set from Visible image stamped on with versamark and heat embossed with clear EP. Followed by lashings of broken china DI. The sentiment from the same set stamped in white and heat set.

Then out with some stencils. The one used here is the Andy Skinner Baroque sheet with black soot DI. Some feathers set into a bead attached with a few links of chain and some feathery fibres as a tie.

I am entering these tags into the challenge at
