Blingy Gold and Silver Gift Tags

These are for a couple of challenges to make tags and use neutrals.

I embossed both of the medallion shapes with gold on the outer portions and silver on the inner portions. To do this, I gently poured on tiny amounts of silver EP then very quickly and carefully flipped my paper to get the powder off without getting any on the outer areas of embossing ink. Then pour gold EP on the rest of the image and heat. I was amazed how well it turned out. You can enlarge the pix below to get a better look.

If you noticed, the first picture didn’t have rhinestones, I added them and took another picture. But you couldn’t see the ribbon as well so I kept the first picture I took as well.

To enhance the effect of two colours of EP, I coloured some of the design in with Copic markers. I use C3 for the silver areas and Y23 for the gold areas. If you are careful to not touch the EP much, you won’t wreck your marker tip. The smaller tag is backed with silver mirrored cardstock and the larger with gold. Each has a small beaded head pin dangling from the bottom.

In the photo it is sandwiched between the layers of cardstock but I am considering pulling it out, making a loop at the top of the pin and attaching it with jump ring through a tiny hole in the bottom of the tag so it can swing freely.

I am entering this in the Joan’s Gardens Challenge make a tag. And Simon Says ‘Anything Goes’. I also can enter this in the December Paper Crafts Magazine Gallery Challenge to make a holiday project.

I am also entering this in the Shabby Tea Room to use the inspiration photo and use ribbon or twine and a sentiment. ETA: I am too late for TSTR. Bummer.
