decided to create a coffin shaped tag to showcase the wonderful image
from the Gothic 31 plate. I used one of the huge tags and trimmed the
sides to create my coffin shape.
tag has been coloured with several layers of rusty hinge Distress
Stain, perfect colour for a Halloween piece, I love the richness of this
colour, perfect for Autumn too, adding black soot ink to the edges for
definition. I stamped the vine using black archival ink, I love this
vine really adds to that eerie feel. I cut a tombstone from white card
using a Spellbinders die, colouring with rusty hinge Distress Stain,
adding black soot to the embossed areas and stamping the focal image to
the centre. I layered the tombstone onto a piece of black card to lift from the background.
repeated the die cutting and stamping onto shrink plastic to create a
mini embellishment to echo the focal image on my tag, adding gold Paint
Dabber to the edges. I also added a small gem for added interest and
dimension along with two heart gems to the top and bottom of my tag.
The focal image also has a large heart gem added to echo the shrink plastic piece. To complete I have added coordinated ribbon.
