Mixed Media tag with Smudgy Antics.

As part of my DT commitment for Smeared Ink in association with the Smudgy Antics blog.I decided to create a Tag.
 All techniques used to create the tag were learnt in online classes from Andy Skinner using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics and Mediums.
I embossed the main background using a spellbinders 3d embossing folder and applied a rust technique. This was then mounted onto the tag.  The main focal image used is The Man Digi Single from the Specimen Jar set available at Smeared Ink. I coloured up the image with copics and then mounted onto a chipboard base and inked the edges. This was then attached to the tag base. I then die cut borders using a spellbinders die and painted with Media Fluid acrylic gold paint. The black antiquing cream was then applied and wiped back to give an aged metal effect and  patina gilding wax applied. The borders were then applied to top and bottom of the tag.
