Today's tag features facets and packing tape transfers with a twist. It's a cool twist, and it results in pieces that have the look of old mercury glass. Not that you'd know that looking at my photos, but trust me, it's a very nice technique. Wait, you don't have to trust me. Just head on over to Tim's blog and see for yourself.
Tim stamped his tag with a sheet music stamp for the background. I could have done that. I could have stamped any number of images. Sometimes we use what we have. And sometimes we use what we can reach. Yep, having one of those lazy days (maybe the fact that finding out I was a winner at 3am got me so excited I couldn't get back to sleep had something to do with that), so instead of getting up and finding a stamp, I used Tim's text tissue paper, because there it was, right in front of me.
Other differences: Tim used two large fragments; I used three smallish ones. His hung from the top of his tag with jute; I have mine suspended from a tree branch on bakery twine. I don't have the tattered banner die, so I made my own by attaching tissue tape to cardstock and folding it and glueing it until it sort of resembled the real thing. Tim spelled believe with his alpha parts and dabbed them with gold paint; I used the word peace and copper paint.
I think it came out OK, though I don't love it as much as some of the others I've done. Like yesterday's.
