Trio of Tags using Boozy Bear and Deco Art

Hi everyone I hope you are well I have my piece using the lovely shapes that we 
were given from Boozy Bear I hope you enjoy reading how I did it as much 
as I did making the tags.
 This is a photo of the shapes that were sent to me and the other members of the DT 
we were all asked to make a piece and look at all the different results.
I also used a couple of other Boozy bear pieces that I had in my stash,
they were the picture frame and i cut up a couple of the pieces 
to fit in with what i was trying to achieve.
 So above I cut the hands off with the flourishes as you will see further on.
I started with the wings i put black modelling paste through a stencil 
then used a texture comb and ran it up and down the
 wings so it gave them ridges.
I triple embossed the piece that I had cut the hands off with chunky embossing powders from Stampendous.
 While still hot I pushed a cog stamp from stampendous
into the hot powder. Once cool I used Deco Art patina 
antiquing cream and left to dry. 
 I prepared all three tags by using the following process.
Deco Arts Media black modelling paste was put through 
a verity of stencils. Different stencils were used on
each tag.
 Once the modelling paste was dry I used black gesso followed by black 
media fluid Acrylic as it gives a different surface to the gesso.
This was followed by white then patina antiquing cream.
I embossed the clock and sprinkled some teal over to give it a patina effect. 
 Below you can see I cut the small clock off a bigger piece and 
gold embossed it.
 Tag 1 was collated together and finished off with building wax
and coloured gauze.
 Same for tag 2 I added a glass embellishment to the base of the tag.
Also the same for tag 3 I used the embossed clock and the photo frame
from Boozy bear the frame was painted with Deco art crackle paint and 
coloured with washes of fluid acrylic.
I hope you have all enjoyed my post and will be desperate to try these 
amazing chipboard shapes as they are so versatile and you can
 customise them if you so wish.
Cheers Dee x
