Oriental tag with Carol

Carols second piece on the paper artsy blog was a beautiful oriental tag. You can pop over and see how she did it here.

Here is my version I didn't have a size 10 tag so had to use a size 8..so because of this I decided to go for a smaller stamp..

I used eggplant,pansy,mushroom(the original one),moonlight,vanilla and honeydew frescos for the back ground. I stamped and painted the Lynne Perella image and cut it out, put it on tag using foam pads.

The writing is also from a Lynne Perella stamp as is the little coin thingy... I didn't have gold utee so used dusty concord distress and embossed it with clear. Couldn't get the same effect as Carol.

I used the small scallops on the edge die and some purple ribbon for the bottom of the tag, and coloured some seam binding using distress stains.

Lastly I used olive bronze treasure gold lightly over the embossed parts of the tag...

thanks for stopping by.....

  3. Ooh, that is beautiful. I love the colours & the coin is fab.

  4. I really love the Eggplant, I must buy some of that. This is such a pretty tag. I love the idea of embossing the Dusty Concord with clear as well. It all works perfectly and the coin finishes it off with an oriental look and the scallop trim looks great. x

  5. Wow! This is stunning Lin! xx

  6. I think your UTEE looks really good Lin. A very pretty tag, beautifully coloured.

  7. Gorgeous, Lin, I love the embossed look you have achieved and the gold coin,

  8. This is fab Lin and I think your embossing looks great. Love that image too. I don't have any of the oriental style stamps from PA. Trying to resist those as I have quite a few other oriental stamps which I love but don't use very often.
