I have a new tag project to share today! If you're familiar with my projects on the UmWowStudio blog you'll know I do A LOT of tags.... because I just love them!! And if you read my earlier post you'll know I just got on the UBER FAB Scrapki Wyzwaniowo DT. Today starts a new challenge.. CHESSBOARD. And I've created this tag to inspire you and maybe get your own creative juices flowing. Enter the challenge to win!
The tag base is 7 Dots Studio All I Ever. I cut out the middle gray portion of one of the patterned pieces and die cut it with the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tags and Bookplates die. (The hole reinforcement is just plain black cardstock.)
I used the Steam Train and Directional Circle stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps in archival ink by Ranger to set the scene for my tag. The train has been embellished with cotton from qTip for steam. The checkerboard you see is a stamping technique using Solar Gold Silks from Luminarte and a new (SNEAK PEEK!) UmWowStudio piece.
The directional Circle has been embellished with the Gear Mash from UmWowStudio and an ideology watch face and spinners. The chipboard gears have been colored with Archival Ink and both the ideology and chipboard has been doused in the Solar Gold Silks Acrylic Glaze by Luminarte.
The TIME Letters are from an old My Mind's Eye line and I finished off this beauty with a little doodling from my Sakura of America Microns.
