As most of you know we are halfway through the 12 Tags of Christmas being hosted by
Since I am making 2 each day this was actually tag 11 and 12 for me. I can honestly say that today's challenge of Distressed/ Enameled Metal was more kind to me than yesterdays challenge.
As Tim states it don't look like much when you are creating it but the results well they speak for themselves.
I didn't have any of the self adhesive metal pages that Tim used so I substituted metal heating and a/c duct tape. Works great and looks really good. Cost next to nothing at your local hardware store.
I have to admit the pictures don't do the art justice. They look and feel like antique metal tags. This technique is a keeper for sure!
Not having any of the Holiday charms I substituted a mover and shaper cut out that I finished with the same technique. It doesn't show so well for it was painted silver/gray. But it mimics the deer already in the background.
Silver rick rack finishes the tag off for a complete metal overload look.
Tag 7.... Bring it on! :)
