Leaky Shed Studios meet Graphic 45!

Here I am  with another tag, they are just so fun to make!  Everyone is busy preparing for the holidays and there are so many fun holiday projects on the web right now.  Well, I just have to be a little different, I need a break from red and green!

I love the fantasy of Steampunk designs and the Steampunk Cameo is one of my favorites.  I paired it with Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells and made this tag that would be great for someone graduating high school or college, or maybe someone embarking on a special adventure.

I like long tags, this one is about 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" and when you take into consideration the lace at the bottom and the cut apart card, its really 4" x 11".

I've been asked, "How did you get the wording on that little tag?"  That's easy, I print it on a transparency and then adhere with a glue that dries clear.  Vellum tape will also work but I like clear glue better.

Here's a closeup of the chippy.  I sprayed it all over with Glimmer Mist - black magic first.  Then I dabbed on random spots of glue and sprinkled with ebony microbeads just to add some texture and contrast.  After that dried I topped the beads with a little glossy accents so that they would stay put!

The best thing about this tag?  It took less than an hour to make.  I love a quick project!
