Causing distress to innocent cardboard boxes....

Well, I have been at it again. I finished off three of the tags I started on Sunday. For 2 I have used the TH embossing folders again, and then did several layers of colouring and embossing and perfect pearls to give them real depth and shine. The third one is partly peeled cardboard, embossed with clear embossing ink and then different metallic embossing powders and perfect pearls, and then stamped with the pocket watch (a lovely stamp from *LaBlanche*) and embossed again. This also gives a lot of depth and shine to the tags. I have included pics of the tag at this stage, too, before decorating with TH die cuts (lock and key) and an autumn fairy. There is also a little face looking out from behind the key-hole, but it's hard to see on the photos. Was fun playing around again, and I like the colours in the tags which show up differently according to the light falling on them! Have a nice day you all, happy crafting and try some experimenting - it's fun!
