Rustic Tag

Hi Friends:  Today's post is a rustic themed tag - created based on a Mood Board that I created. Please see below for photos, process, challenges, and supplies.  Have a super day!

My Mood Board for this tag:

I started with a blank manila tag and used embossing paste and a stripe stencil to create my wood-grain background.  Once dry, I used LSG sprays to color the background.  I colored a white doily with the Opal Sea Oats and layered it on the tag.  For a bit of interest, I used Jet Black ink and a script stamp randomly on the tag.  I colored some white and patterned flowers with the LSG sprays and arranged them over the doily.  From my mood board, in addition to the flowers and wood, I wanted to capture the lights, the metal chain on the lantern and some of the vines on the ladder.  I found a floral vine in my stash that had 2 elements I wanted to use - the wood-look vines and some plastic/glass-looking flowers and accents - I thought the flowers would look great hanging from the chain with the light bulb - they reminded me of little twinkle lights that you would hang outdoors.  So, I found some Tim Holtz chain tassels and light bulbs in my stash.  I separated the chains from the tassels, and the flowers from the vines, and used the little hooks to loop around the flowers and attach them to the chain.  I used a piece of silver wire to loop through the light bulb and attach it to the center of the piece of chain that I stapled to the top of the tag.  I stapled more pieces of the chain throughout the tag as shown.  I tucked a few more of the vines and leaves around the paper flowers on top of the doily.  I dry brushed the flowers with a bit of white gesso for highlights.  I added some microbeads to the flowers and areas around them.  I used Distress Black Soot ink to edge the tag and mixed some with water to create some ink splatters.  I colored some Crinkle Ribbon with the LSG sprays and tied it in a bow at the top of the tag.  The Chit Chat words were also colored with LSG sprays and edged with Black Soot, then added to the tag.  I really enjoyed creating this tag and think the mood board was a great inspiration for me!
