Find Delight - DT Project by Hels

Gooodly Morning Snazzyfans!  I am back again with another taggy offering using the gorgeous Prima Engraver Collection that we DT girlies have been using this past month.  Before I waffle on, please do remember that Snazzy's very kindly offer a discount on the DT Kit that we are using... so  you can grab yourself the same kit we have used... and get a bargain into... erm... the bargain!  HERE are all the deets how to snaffle one for yourself :O))



Another tag from me, this time a smaller one.  This is a normal size 8 manila tag from Ranger.  I used Distress Inks to colour the tag:  starting with Antique Linen, I blended over the entire tag and then added Frayed Burlap DI around the edges.  Around the very edgy bits I added Brushed Corduroy DI - this colour tones perfectly with the Engraver collection.  Next I did a bit of stamping for the background using the Engraver stamps and Ochre Archival Ink.  I added a smidge more interest using a clock stencil and Frayed Burlap DI.



Next I used some of the offcuts of paper from my previous project and made a little banner piece... adding stickyback metallic pearls for a bit of bling and then sticking it directly to the tag base.  I had a Grungepaper diecut hinge kicking about on my desk, so I coloured that with Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain DI and popped that onto the bottom of the tag.  The flowers in the kit are to die for so I had to use those aswell... spritzing them with Black Marble Dylusions and Cosmic Shimmer Ancient Copper to add a bit of sparkle.   The sentiment was made up using Idea-ology Chit Chat Stickers and popped onto 3d foam to make the sentiment pop a little more.  In the kit are some little pearly swirls so I stuck those on after adding a smidge of gilding wax to them to tone them in... how pretty!



Anyways, that's all from me for now... don't forget you could be in with a chance of winning the fabby DT Kit that we have been using too... simply leave a comment on this post HERE.   Thanks for looking... TTFN!
