There are some new kids on the block over at STAMPlorations: Craftplorations MDF Shapes.
Today I'm introducing you to the new Mini Rectangle Tags. These tags are perfect for mixed media projects, altering and for thinking outside the box.
Let me show you my 'thinking-out-of-the-box project', here is my keyring charm:
When I opened my pack of Mini Rectangle Tags, it contained 8 tags 2 of each of the 4 shapes below. They are a nice size and with a bit of imagination could be turned into pendants for charms. This is where my idea cam about.
I picked one and embossed one side with a mixture of embossing powder. I added a few layers to make it look like enamel.
I then added a coloured, die-cut leaf using a tiny bit of glue and added another couple of layers of clear embossing powder.
For the reverse I cut a piece of card to size, blended some ink, stamped my sentiment and added a couple of layers of clear embossing powder before attaching it. I did try and crack the embossing a bit for a more vintage look.
I edged my tag with a gold leaf pen and finished my keyring charm off by adding pearls using some linen twine
