Mechanical Hearts Tag Duo {SOD Guest Spot}

I'm officially starting my Guest Design spot for Scraps of Darkness with a Mechanical Hearts tag duo using the Perfectly Stunning kit! The kit is gorgeous in turquoises, tans and browns, vintage balloons, steampunky goodness and just all around delicious! 


I also got to participate in the awesome Embellishment Add On Kit.

And here is my tag duo:

I started with a sheet of the BoBunny paper included in the kit, cut some tags and did a bit of layering and framing with black cardstock. The outside edge of the tags has been distressed with Prima's Comfort tool. The background layer on top of the paper consists of some stamping using Viva Las VegaStamps! rubber stamps I've designed (Clockface and Invoice/Waybill) in archival ink by Ranger Ink. The bottom borders are from the Diecuts pack included in the Embellishment Add On.

The top of the right tag has a perfect little triangle sticker from the 7 Dots Studio Dreamer collection, a bit of sewing, and some gorgeous May Arts Ribbon (Burlap String and Sheer Stitched Edge.)

The bottom of the right tag is adorned with UmWowStudio Chipboard Gears that have been covered in iZink gold, Archival Ink by Ranger, and some Glimmer Glam by Tattered Angels. I also layered up a small set of leaves cut from 9th Wave by 7 Dots Studio using a Magnolia die, and a Prima flower that's been embellished with eBeads and Glimmer Glam.

The top of the left tag is layered with another diecut from the Embellishment Add On, and one of the Prima Resin pieces and flowers from the main kit. I gave the Prima Resin heart a set of the metal wings from the Embellishment Add On. I also colored the heart with the awesome teal colored Mixed Media ink from the Main Kit. The bit of brown you see in the crevices of the heart is coffee. 

The bottom of the right tag has a diecut from the 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection, a bit of sewing, a paper clip, a Tim Holtz Game Spinner and a small white Prima bud. I then just finished the tag duo with some letting from the BoBunny Sticker sheet from the kit, and my Dymo Label Maker. That's all she wrote!! Stay tuned for my other Scraps of Darkness posts using the Perfectly Stunning kit :)
