Angel Tag

Playing with all the goodies Veronica sends in the kits is easy, updating the blog is the hard part! Completed projects sit until I find time to take photos, then the write up... ah well thats another hard bit!

In my last DT kit from Wild About Scrap I was very fortunate to recieve TH Sizzix alterations die Layered Angel Wings amoungst my goodies. I am so in love with this die I had to make a quick tag.

Taking an 8in manila shipping tag I used the technique used by so many :) the one where you add the distress ink to your work mat then spritz some water to dilute then wipe your tag through allowing the colours to blend, I used broken china and tumbled glass. Using vintage photo distress ink and a blender I added a little colour to the edges, lastly using a TH christmas music sheet stamp I stamped the image with peeled feathers distress ink. Using my bigshot I cut out the Layered Angel Wings from white card and calico and using my distress inks coloured them and added a touch of glimmer with tattered angels dazzling diamonds glimmermist (bit hard to see in the photo), using pop dots when assembling them for some added difinition. I finished off the tag with some vintage lace, bakers twine and a small resin rosebud at the bottom and at the top of the tag I tied some seam binding and gold tinsel ribbon and glued on a small chipboard snowflake which I had gesso'd and then used diamond stickles to and lots of sparkle. The image used was downloaded and printed from the internet then cut out with scissors.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and Happy New Year and hope 2013 brings you much joy to your heart and warmth into your home and happiness in everything you do. xx



  1. This is beautiful. I love the blue and the dimension on the wings. cheers Linda

  2. Now that is called a cool scarp design with a good color choice. I really liked the way you have added the wings. Hope to see several more such scrap layouts in the coming future, keep it up!
