This basic spritz and flick tag was created when I was going through the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 01 several years ago. When going though and organizing my tags I decided to complete it.
I wanted to create a border so I chose the Jam'n Barbed Wire strip to stamp down the left hand side of the tag. I stamped it then stamped a second generation to the left of the first stamp.. This adds a bit of interest and depth.
While I had the stamp out, I used Stazon Timber Brown and stamped the twill for the tag top. I stamped both sides since I was going to staple the twill instead of trying to tie it.
Next I wanted to play with stamping on fun foam. I inked up the Texas (state) stamp so that it was ready to go. Next I heated the fun foam until it was warm and pliable. I immediately stamped onto the foam and held constant pressure for several seconds. This created a impression that was also inked. It's hard to get a good photograph that shows the detail, but I tried. I cut around the shape and added another layer of foam behind it to add more dimension to the focal point of the tag.
