I was so excited when I found out I was going to be able to work with the Ornithoper (pronounced [awr-nuh-thop-ter]. It has such a great Steampunk look and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it...
Isn't that the coolest looking flying machine? I just love it. Anyway, to get the cool vintage look I started off by coloring the Ornithoper with a black Sharpie Marker.
Next I inked up a piece of a glassine envelope with Spiced Chai StazOn Midi. I just swiped it across the glassine then immediatly wiped across it with a tissue to take up much of the ink to make it look more stained than inked.
I then glued the frame to the glassine and let it dry. Once dry I took my exacto knife and cut off all the excess glassine.
For the tag I started off by inking up the tag using Pistachio & Peanut Brittle Memento Luxe Inks.
Once the inks had dried I then stamped several fun images available at Altered Pages onto the tag.
Next I added a dash of metal leafing here and there (adhering it using Duo Adhesive) and gave it a spritz of the Bronze irRESISTible Texture Spray.
After everything had a chance to dry I started adding the tag, mini bingo card, sentiment and more. I had such fun making this tag and I just love how it turned out. I LOVE that ornithoper!!!
I hope you enjoy my Steamy tag
and it inspires you!
