Bombshell Pin Up Challenge: Confessions!

Cassie, the Bombshell Pin Up for November, has challenged all of us to confess to something. My confession? I love mermaids. Always have. I think its a carry over from my childhood - a 'The Little Mermaid" obsession that never really faded. Actually, its more than mermaids - mer-folk of all sorts, and tales about the sea in folklore. So I made this little art tag for my 'confessions' project. Hope you enjoy it!


First I created the background. I started with a blank white tag and ran the tag through Green and Blue Distress ink.

Then I stamped with a flourish stamp and covered it with glue and glitter, packing the glitter into the glue, and let dry.


I stamped out my mermaid image and colored her.  I cut her out and put her on dimensionals to give a sense of depth. I added rhinestones to her hips.

I thien background stamped the small icons in the far right corner.

I threaded a button and stuck it on and added the "imagine" metal tag.

Then I hand-dyed some crinkle ribbon and let it dry and added it to my art tag and VOILA! A beautiful and completely authentic piece of art.

Leave me some love in the comment section, I'd love to know what you think. Or, if you have tried this art tag technique before, link me! I'd love to see how it turned out for you!
