Double Tag split

If you haven't heard we are having a Tag Challenge!  Find out details HERE to join the fun!

My Tag project for Altered Pages is this duo of tags I created. I had much fun making them and am over the moon with the result.

Start with two tags. Use a small piece of Washi Tape to secure them together for stamping and embossing. With dark ink and large stamp, stamp the image halfway on each tag.

I used coordinating embossing powder over the stamped image, set with heat tool.  Heat embossing the image water proofs  it, allowing me to use wet water paints over the tag.

Next, I sprayed the tags with water, then using orange and yellow water colours with a water brush painted over the tag. Then blotted with paper towel and dried with the heat gun. This muted the colours considerably.  

When the tags were dry I stamped with a background text stamp randomly around the edges.  For more vibrant color I then added more paint around the edges.

Finally, I chose a swirl background stamp and stamped around the edges of the tags. Yellow ribbons were the finishing touch!!!  This was a lot of fun, I will be making more tags this month.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
