Here's a little tag I made for a couple of challenges. It came out rather goth-y! :)
My original idea was altering the microscope slide by stamping the Ching Chou Kuik (from Sweet Pea Stamps) image onto it. I heat embossed the image and coloured it in using ProMarkers. I then painted gesso over a torn-out dictionary page and used that to back the slide - you can faintly see the text through the image in this close-up:
I decided to mount the slide onto a tag - I used black card and clear embossed it with a Crafty Individuals flourish stamp before spritzing with Lava Red Cosmic Shimmer ink and splattering Hot Pink Mica Dylusions across it. I attached the altered slide and, to finish, added a ruffled flower made with black lace (originally a scrap of cream lace which I recoloured with a black inkpad!) and a pink Prima felt flower, and more black lace, along with some black fibres, at the top.
I'm entering this tag into the following challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers - Alter something not square
Sweet Pea Stampers - Embossing
In a Sweet Pea Dream - Anything Goes
