Tag Friday time!

MDF tag with Distress Oxides and Tim Holtz Hardware Findings
Hello - it is Friday and a long weekend!
Today we have a Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey - they only come round every 3 months and we do love them.

My tag started as a manila tag but in the end I added it to an MDF base so I could hang it if required. 
The background is Distress Oxides with splodges of watery white gesso, some credit card gesso lines, tissue tape and stamping.

 I die cut the keyhole from greyboard using Tim Holtz Hardware Findings die. I added texture paste and painted with black gesso. Once dry I dry brushed white gesso to catch the texture before adding Deco Art Quinacridone Gold.

The die cut in the background is also Sizzix - a Pete Hughes one I think? I sponged with brown paint and then gesso for contrast.

Lots more inspiration at AVJ today - and your chance to join in our Tag Fridays...

  5. Nikki, this may be my favorite tag EVER! There is complexity and yet simplicity to this design that totally pushes all of my buttons, let along the lovely rusty peach palette. Sigh... It's such a beauty and I adore every last detail and soaked it all up while reading your post. Wonderful wonderful inspiration! I feel a peach color streak coming on! Happy Easter and hugs, Autumn
