Week 25 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019

The prompt for Week 25 of the challenge is "All Things Male" as it is Father's Day weekend.

For my tag, I decided to use a Visible Image set of stamps which is quite new to me, it's called "Art Rebel".

I started by repeat stamping the large fish from the set onto a plain manilla coloured tag.  I used Distress Oxide ink in the shade of "Brushed Corduroy".

I then stamped the words from the same set using Distress Oxide "Ground Espresso" shade of ink.  I then used a blender very lightly to give a little blush colour to the surface using Distress Oxide "Fired Brick" shade of ink.  I inked the edges of the tag using a black Versafine Clair ink called "Norcturne".  I also added some black splatters to the surface too.

Using the Distress Oxide "Ground Espresso" shade of ink again, I stamped the face sections onto a plain tag and cut them down,  I then mounted them on some red card and adhered them to the tag.

I die cut swirly cirles in matching red card.  Using Glossy Accents, I stuck a button to each eye of the glasses then stuck the outer edge of the die cut swirl over the button, so that the middle stands out 3D like.  I found some little metallic discs which I also stuck to the tag.
