Variations Week - Randi's View

Hello Sweet Pea lovers!

It's Variations Week again, and this week we've been playing with the supercool image Irish Chic by the artist Joanne Schempp
I'm not usually playing with digis, but this week I have. You will see that I've been making a really different card from what I usually do - no coloring this time! And in fact, I've made a tag card this time.
I find it real fun to do some "crazy" and different things with my card sometimes. 
For my tag card I've been making my own background papers, using Glossy Papers, Distress Inks and water. The image is printed on Vellum papers, and I've added stickles on some details. I've also added different ribbons: Tim Holtz's film strip ribbons, Washi Tape ribbons and Hug Snug Seam Binding ribbons (which I have colored myself with Distress Inks and water)
I've also added a charm, some flowers and buttons. 
In the end, I sprayed Perfect Pearls Mist on top of the tag, to get a shimmering look. 
Because of all the glittering in the card, it was a bit hard to get good pictures, but anyways: here are some pics of my tag!

See you next week!

  1. You did a lot of detail work for a tag Randi. But it goes together well. I like how you layered the words onto the filmstrip and the way you colored only the outcome!

  2. Your tag looks so cool, Randy! Love how you stamped the image on vellum and added some glitter and colour effects. Wonderful idea!
    Hugs, Karina

  3. Fabulous tag and so creative. So many wonderful elements, great idea.
    Best wishes, Sharon

  4. Pretty Tag. I like all that glitter.
