Ok. Let me just say...I hate Tim's tag today. It's messy. It's sloppy. To me, he called this one in...
My challenge was to do something I liked out of the un-inspiration of Day 6. AND I LOVE WHAT I DID!!
I was looking thru my embossing folders and came across this musical note folder. And I remembered my resin birds - and BANG! I was inspired.
I don't have the big wide sheet of heavy foil Tim had, but I've had this roll of flashing tape for years. It's shiny. It has an adhesive backing. It's cheap. You can find it in the hardware store near the venting materials. The only down fall is that it's 2-inches wide. But I just laid two strips together and when embossed you don't really notice the joint.
What I disliked most about Tim's tag was the messy paint dabber painting. So, I colored the tag with my COPIC R29. Since Copics are alcohol based they act just like the Ranger's Alcohol Inks. Better yet..since Copic has like million colors you can get the EXACT shade you want (if you have it that is...).
The alcohol dries quickly but leaves the metal tape feeling a bit sticky. After I used the sander to remove color and distress the tape, I sprayed it with Workable Fixatif.
Here's my resin bird. I also colored with Copics.
The branch was a Prima product which I just hot glued to the tag. Added some ribbon and "Merry Christmas" - which is part of a Memory Box stamp. I also spot colored that with a Copic directly to the stamp.
Here's hoping Day 7 is more inspiration...
