I is for Inspire

Published May 1, 2012 by isisimaginings

Greetings blog visitors, here is my next tag in the Chocolate Baroque  Alpha Tag Swap.  I wasn’t sure about signing up to three swap initially, but I’m glad I did.  Every month I receive two terrific tags from CB members & it’s so interesting to see what they have they created.

When I began thinking of this tag, “words inspire” came to mind.  Then I thought of a bookmark, but one that was old & worn.

I glued a page of an old book onto the tag, followed by torn scraps of patterned Elusive Images papers – CB used to be Elusive Images – and sealed everything with Mod Podge.

After blending distress inks – Broken China, Stormy Sky & Chipped Sapphire – over the top & drying with a heat tool, I put pale blue acrylic paint through a Crafter’s Workshop mini cubist stencil in patches.

The word ‘inspire’ is from the CB Artistic Expressions collection.  I stamped it on white, scrap card which I edged with Chipped Sapphire  DI & added the crew brad.

This tag ended up very grungy.  I like it, but I’m not sure how the recipient of it will feel about it.  Sometimes though, I need to make something completely different from the light colours & flowery stuff.

Thank you for looking.  Until next time,

Love & light
