rusty bike

 This tag was die cut, and dusted with TH ink to appear "rusty" a tandem bike( die cut in brown card to give a rust effect ) was added and distressed with TH ink. I added silver flake o give the illusion of some steel underneath the rust colour. The sentiment was stamped and die cut. The "spokes" from the bike wheel made the star/flower on the bottom right corner. I added a bronze leaf and some small flowers. Small micro beads were use to embellish. I now have a tag for a friends birthday gift !

  1. This is a great tag to add to a gift! I love that bike die cut and how you added the silver flake to add to the rusty effect! Thank you for sharing your artwork with our Rusty and Crusty challenge at A Vintage Journey! Hugs!

  2. Love the shape of your die cut tag Jean - and all the rusty bits - background, bike and seeds - the sentiment goes well with your image and is so fun stamped on the oval die cut! Thanks for joining us in the A Vintage Journey challenge! Julia xx
