Coupled with a slightly alternative method of stamping...
I felt an idea stirring in my furry brain, so I foraged in the basket of inks....
I dabbed some distress inks - Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw and a little Vintage photo - onto an acrylic block, and spritzed them with water.
I pressed my tag into the inkyness, ooh, it curled up, neat!
After drying my tag, I added several splats of distress stain, in gathered Twigs and erm, ooh, I can't actually remember the other one's name, a reddish brown anyway! I then stamped a lamppost in brown Stayzon, and rubbed some of the erm, reddish brown stain onto a bottle cap, which I then dabbed randomly over the tag. I thought I ought to stop with the background effects then, I do tend to go for overkill sometimes!
I remembered we needed to include vellum, so I cut a small Tim Holtz Tattered floral, and scrunched it to make it even more distressed (it was so distressed by this point, it almost cried)!
After cutting some Dylusions hands, and snipping the original hands from my poor dancing lady image, I adhered the elements to the tag with 3d stickies, for a popping effect. The title comes not only from my frustration at the start of the tag, but also from the pop song that includes these lyrics, as I thought my lady looked like she might want to break into modern dance!
Here's a close up, the song will be in my head all day now.
Brown - Kraft tag and various brown inks
Vellum - tattered florals flower
Hands - stamped Dulusions hands
