Polished Stone Tags

Here are two more tags that I made last weekend.  This is a variation of the tag I made for the Compendium 2 Challenge.  I loved the colors so much I kept going.  The tags are made by cutting glossy white cardstock into #8 tag shape.  I planned to add an Idea-ology hole reinforcer, but I decided I didn't want to distract from the design and color palate.  
The tags were made using the alcohol-ink patina or polished stone technique.  I will admits that I went a little lot overboard with the gold metallic alcohol ink and it made a mess.  I found that by using a baby wipe and a lot of elbow grease I was able to remove some of the offensive ink.
The rub ons are Basic Grey- I bought 240 packages from Ebay several months ago for like $40.  SCORE!  I just checked and couldn't find a current listing but she was running them frequently a few months ago.  You could certainly doodle the  vines with a permanent black pen but remember I have no drawing talent :(  

I added my signature rhinestones and added some pretty colored pearls as well.  The ribbon was colored with Glimmer Mist-tutorial coming soon.  I love the whimsy of the rub ons over the gorgeous colors.

  1. Danee, these are beautiful! Such gorgeous colors! Love the entire composition with the little details of the rhinestones and array of ribbons. I've never tried the polished stone technique but it always impresses me. Those are rub-ons? Nice score!
