Chocolate Baroque AlphaTags Swap 2012 ‘B’

Published January 28, 2012 by isisimaginings

Brrrr, it’s cold!!  Yesterday morning I gessoed a canvas & it’s only just dry.  I shall be using the heat tool on it shortly; I want to take part in some blog challenges that end tomorrow, so I need to get a move on.  But first, today’s tag.  It’s the second of Chocolate Baroque’s AlphaTag swap for January.

‘B’ is for:

  • Bird
  • Buttons
  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Banner
  • Bakers’ Twine


  • Elusive Images patterned papers
  • Chocolate Baroque ‘Textured Fragments’ stamp collection
  • Distress inks, clear embossing powder, Versamark
  • Hampton Art mini alphabet stamps
  • Bird from Glenda Waterworth designed ‘Bird in  Heart’ stamp – freebie in Craft Stamper magazine, 2010

I stuck the brown, patterned paper to a manila tag, to make it a little sturdier.  The blue paper was plain apart from a few streaks, so I stamped one of the TF stamps on to it with Versamark, covered the image with clear EP & then heat set.  You can see the texture & shine in the above pic.  I coloured the banner flags with distress inks & added a little detail with a black, fine liner pen, stuck them to the bakers’ twine, which I then attached to the tag.

I came across the square button when I was looking for the round ones.  I can’t remember where it came from, but I think it looks good here.  I wanted something else on the tag, so I stamped the heart & bird stamp, cut out the bird, coloured it with a blue Promarker & a silver pen & attached it to the banner with a little silicone glue.  That, I decided, was that.

Have a great weekend, thanks for looking.  Until next time,

Love & light.
