When I saw Shelly Hickox's dog tag tutorial I just knew it was something I wanted to create for myself...and maybe for future gifts. I used an old Sizzix big red scallop combo tag die and the same metal flashing. For safety I did sand the edges a bit to ensure there were no rough spots to cause problems later.
The dragonfly charm was silver but Cornflower Blue archival ink changed that quickly...along with a bit of Tim's gold paint. I didn't like the way it dangled on the jump ring so it was adhered to the tag with Multi-Medium.
When I was at the thrift store not too long ago I spotted these pearl earrings for a quarter. Archival inks wouldn't stick to the slick surface so I added some alcohol inks, more archival ink and some dabs of gold and tumbled glass distress paint.
Can't wait to wear them this weekend when I attend my youngest niece's high school graduation and my youngest nephew's medical school graduation.
