new tag

I havent forgotten the tut for the drawer unit, I've ran out of gummed tape and havent been able to get any locally :o(  Will try and get some tomorrow and finish it off.. it's already to go bar the drawers so shouldnt take long.

In the meantime I've been playing with some new goodies and a few old favourites.

Hubby doesnt know it but he bought me the angle corner chomper last week ;o)  so I turned a tall skinny (3*5) into a tag.  The base is picked raspberry, peacock feathers & dusty concord distress ink which has a kaisercraft crackle image randomly stamped in concord ink before being misted with water and biscotti perfect pearls.  Next I added diecuts from memory box, marianne designs & spellbinders coloured with the same 3 inks.  I cut 2 flowers with my favourite spellbinder bitty blossom die, inked again and stamped with concord ink and stampin ups french script before rolling and shaping the edges with a quilling tool.  There are a couple of gems inside the rolled flowers. I dont like the smaller flowers that the dies make so I painted some ready made ones from Wild Orchid, they took ages to dry.. wont be doing that again for a while.  I tied some turquoise & purple organza ribbon then shrivelled them with a heat gun.. my favourite technique at the moment.. I loove watching it shrivel up and twist lol.   Finally I added a couple of silver cones and hat pins and a smidge of white cosmic shimmer gilding wax.

I'm going to enter the tag into a few challenges

Crafty Sentiments  Favourite technique/colours..  teal & purple are my favourite colours and playing with distress ink has to be my favourite technique.
