Today, I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer at Paper Crafting Magic Challenges, The theme is "Anything Goes," so of course, I ran to my Embossing Folders and Craft Metal Sheets!
The base card is SU! Basic Black Cardstock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4".
The next layer is a 4 1/8"" x 5 3/8" piece of Basic Black Cardstock that was passed through the Big Shot in the SU! Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.
The Golden Glimmer Craft Metal Sheet was cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and then passed through the Big Shot in the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder. Jet Black Stazon Ink was used to ink ONLY the raised portions of the metal.
The strip of black cardstock across the front was embossing using the same Embossing Folder.
The word "hello" is from Wplus9 and was cut from a piece of Gold Craft Metal Sheet that was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. It was attached using Crystal Effects.
A TH Accoutrements Button was attached to embellish the corner of the strip.
The top layer was attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
A 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock was attached to the inside of the card.
This tag incorporates several Challenges - which is always fun for me! Watercoloring is not something I do very often, probably because I need a lot more practice! This attempt was based on the technique in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities III.
The tag was embossed using the TH Compass Set Texture Fade Embossing Folder and then sponged using various Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Broken China, ScatteredStraw and Rusty Hinge.
The main image is from TH Classics #1 Stamp Set. It was stamped on Watercolor Cardstock using Archival Black Ink and colored using Distress Markers and Brushes. The edges of the paper were sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. It was then adhere to the tag using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The Crinkle Ribbonwas dyed using Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Peacock Feathers and Scattered Straw. The Pediments Diewas cut from an old sponged tag (that was too ugly to use, LOL!) and attached to the back of the tag.
Chit Chat Stickers were sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink and adhered to the project with a Tiny Attacher. A button from Accoutrements was attached using Glue Dots. An Idea-ology Mini Corner was attached to the bottom of the tag.
Mini Gears and a Game Spinner were also used to embellish the card.

Now...on to the card.... I was so in love with these 7 Dots Studio Papers that I had a very hard time covering them with anything! I wanted to use as many of them as possible so I created a tri-fold card and used three different patterns from the Nature Walk Collection.

The two interior panels have 5-7/8" x 3-7/8" pieces of 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk patterned paper adhered to them.
