Fragile

I’m back today sharing a mixed media tag made using the skull shadow stencil and some of the new stamps from Visible Image. It has been an amazing few days at Creativasion!! Hope you have been following the live videos from the convention centre. The team have been doing an awesome job! I’ll get there one day I hope! So from the team holding the fort at home and hoping to provide some inspiration here’s today’s contribution.

Some scrummy new stamp sets available on pre order.

For this project I also used :An mdf tag; Sheena stamping card;ink sprays in teal, green and metallic bronze ; foils in teal and copper; pebeo foiling gel; black embossing powder; versamark ink; Amsterdam black and white acrylic pens; copper wire ;complimentary ribbons; metal gears and irredescent pink gem.

To begin I lined the tag with the stamping card. This was then sprayed randomly using the sprays. Rather than spray through the stencil I decided to spray green ink on to the stencil and use like a stamp to create the skull impression. I did this a couple of times so the skull shape stood out from the background. I also highlighted the shape using black and white pens and did a little shading around the edges using brown ink.

The focal point is the eye. I heat embossed in black the cracked glass stamp over the eye socket. Using the gel adhesive I highlighted some areas around the crack, splinters and the teeth. When clear I cold foiled using copper foil. I also added some white highlights.

I decided to add the metal gears and gem.

Using the organics stamp set I selected a couple of elements and like before stamped in black. This time I foiled on top using teal foil. I also wound some wire around the bottom and along the side of the tag for added texture.

I stamped the ‘fragile’ sentiment onto inked card and added some white highlights . I wound more wire through the hole at the top of the tag along with some ribbon.

  1. I cannot get over ALL the elements you have used & how??! The foiling & metal is fantastic. The “shards” really DO look like glass dropped on. The colours are amazingly striking. As for the skull & it’s “eye”….. Gosh! You have written a great step-by-step but I couldn’t imagine creating anything close. I WILL however, take away foiling as something to try. I’ve seen it a lot but always thought “not for me”. Brilliant imaginative tag😀
