Summer Beach Clear Tag


I was trying to clean up my craft space yesterday and since I had some extra images of the ones I had used for an ATC swap, and I had found some shells on a trip to Salvation Army thrift store on Saturday, I decided to combine a few challenges and make this.

I took one of the pieces of plastic that an embossing folder came in, cut it into a tag shape and used my alcohol inks on it. I then adhered some different items to it using glossy accents. I added some gold with Smooch here and there and a butterfly charm and shells...some stickles and some text from October Afternoon paper I had used.

Details:
alcohol inks Butterscotch, Stream, and I forget which other color, and I think a dab of gold mixative and blending solution.
Gold Lame Smooch
Mini shells and charm from stash
Tim Holtz stamp on scrap paper
Turquoise stickles
misc ribbon

Challenges:
Tag Tuesday- not on paper
One Stop Craft Challenge- not a card
ResQ challenge- therapy- pounding my alcohol inks on and using stuff I had out is therapy
Paper Cutz- anything goes
Stampin for the Weekend- anything goes
