Tag Tuesday Challenge -- Not on Paper


Today's tag was not easy to photograph as I created it on an acrylic surface.  I wanted to show how it's transparent, and I hope that comes through in the photo.  I used alcohol inks to create the background.  I then used gold metallic Staz-On and stamped text background.  You have to look closely to see this, but I really like the metallic Staz-On!
Anyways, that means today's challenge is to create a tag that is from any other material besides paper.  Your tag can be from chipboard. corrugated cardboard, fabric, grungepaper, acrylic as mine is -- or anything else you can think of as long as it's not a paper tag.  The theme is open.
The crown tags from last week were amazing -- I can't wait to see what everyone cooks up for this week!

Good morning Louise!
Everything about your tag is just beautiful - it is a stunning creation! I don't know whether I will be up to this one as I remember the same theme last year.... we will see. I enjoyed the crown tags in the sidebar.

BelleSouth said...

What a great challenge idea, and yours is lovely. Hope it was OK for me to use the one I made last week and couldn't get a good photo off- it fits the bill. If it's not OK, that's fine too!

Hi there, I love the transparency of your project its gorgeous and so are the images. Great idea to use alcohol inks so that you have the colour but can still see through. Very unique tag. Have a good evening, Tracy Evans x

Stacy said...

Wonderful tag. I love the soft look it gets from being transparent. Beautiful job!

A stunning tag Louise and photographed so well to show the effect. Was unsure if I would manage to make it this week but here, at last! Lynne M x

JeanFB said...

This tag is stunning! I love the translucency of it with the alcohol inks and the StazOn - beautifully shimmery. It took me a while to come up with an idea, but I definitely had fun playing along once I did. Thanks for another great challenge!
