Metal

Hi there fellow taggers :-D I hope this finds you all well and having had a good week. Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my paper doll tag last week. 
For this week I didn't have any clue what I was going to do, and then after seeing the superb examples already on the blog, I was even more mystified! 
And then, I remembered I had some left-over bits of a tomato puree tube hidden somewhere in my stash, so I dug it out and pondered a bit more on how I was going to make it tag shaped.  
((Light bulb!)) I used my Artful Dwellings die in my bigshot! Yay, me!  Sorry ~ anyway ~ I then used an embossing folder to add some texture.  


After that I dripped on my two alcohol inks, blue & yellow, (tried to make green but it didn't mix very well), and once that was dry I added some more colour with alcohol markers. Finally, I added colour to a ring pull which I fastened on with a coloured brad. 
Well until next week, stay safe and be well. Namaste. **hugs** :o) Mo x

  4. So unusual and what an inspired idea to (a) add the ring pull and (b) attach it with a brad. Lovely colours, and the texture of the diamond shapes.
    As for the puree tube, it's always said that if you keep a thing long enough it comes in useful one day. (as long as you can find it, which is not always the case with me).
