I have a tutorial today on the Sizzix blog, hope you join me there! Here's a sneak peek:
After die cutting the Sizzix Tapered Fringe strip on this project, I was inspired by the shape to use it on these two tags:
I die cut two tags using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tag die and the Tapered Fringe.
Next, I glued the fringe to the tags, cutting the fringe apart.
I completely covered the tag with black crackle paint.
Now comes the fun part! Using Viva Colour's Inka Gold Metallic Rub first and then to highlight the colour, Silks Acrylic Glaze, I applied the colour. Love this metallic rub!
I just rubbed a very small amount on my tag using my finger. You can't tell in the photo, but it has a beautiful shimmer to it.
I added a small amount of the Silks glaze for extra colour. On this tag, I added a Tim Holtz rub-on in the corner.
After the tags were dry, I added in my embellishments. With this one, I die-cut flowers from Sizzix's Tattered Flower Garland Decorative Strip with very thin chipboard. I painted these also with Black Crackle paint and then glued to my tag. Once they were on my tag, I applied the metallic rub to these also. I added a Tim Holtz metal embellishment and ribbon to finish it off.
With this tag, I die-cut a patterned piece of paper with the Sizzix On the Edge Torn Notebook die and cut out the number one using Sizzix's Movers and Shapers Number Set. I die cut the number one out of chipboard, painted, then applied a rub-on to that. I glued it to the tag, matching the negative space in my paper. I also cut out Sizzix's Mini Pocket Watch out of chipboard, applied the Metallic Rub and then attached a Tim Holtz compass coin embellishment to the middle (it fits perfect inside the watch). Add in a few more embellishments, ribbon, and you are done!
I love the effect the fringe die has when you use it this way. I need to look at my other dies and see what they would look like using this technique!
