Stamping with the Dragon - Use a Tag on your project or card

I'm back to show you my card for last week's challenge at Stamping with the Dragon. This week's challenge is to use a tag on your project or  make anything you wish, but the tag must be visible on it. So I decided to do a tag, so I started off using a blank manilla tag and I cut out a second tag using Tim Holtz 'Tag & Bookplates' using paper from the collection called 'Tattered Time stack by DCWV. I ran it thru a Tim Holtz embossing folder called 'Diamond Plate & Riveted Metal Set'. I sponged Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk over the raised areas. I then used brown glossy gear paper and cut it out using Tim Holtz 'Gadget Gears'. I popped the gears up by using pop up dots. I then used the Vintage Garden Clock and you can find it here in the store;

I printed the image onto a piece of acetate and coloured the image on the backside using metallic sharpies. I added some embossing ink by Ranger on 2 different areas of my tag to add some bling. I then added some aged gold & aged silver embossing powder which I heat set. Then added some bronze mica and gold halo glitter all by Stampendous. I added some light brown/dark brown satin ribbon by May Arts.

And that is it from us for this time. Now its your turn. Time to get crafting, and once your TAG creations are ready, dont forget to come back and link up to our challenge. The prize for the winner is a £5 voucher to the
