Ides of March

Goddess of Rome

Start your project by “crumpling/scrunch” up your 2 shipping tags. Using 2 different sizes of your choice. Next you need to straighten out your tags, you can do this by ironing over them (project by placing a cloth over the top of your tags). You can now colour the background using Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Jim Holtz.

Using “mineral” Brilliance Pigment Ink pad, ink up your jumbo sized domino and then heat set using your embossing heat tool. Next you can stamp your image direct to your domino, using “coal black”, Ancient Page ink. Immediately after, emboss your image with ultra fine embossing powder and heat set. This creates the water/bubble effect.
Outline domino using a Liquid Gold paint marker (DecoColor opaque - broad line), and embellish with the letter “G” Making Memories page pebble to represent the word Goddess.
Cut out a piece of black cardstock approx 3 mm wider than your domino, outline in gold (using same as above) and then mount domino to the black cardstock, now attach to the bottom right of your largest shipping tag, using Aleen’s tacky glue.
Ink up your images using “coal black”, Ancient Page ink and stamp onto your shipping tags. Images are from Block Heads Greco-Roman Collection 4 (unmounted). Edge tags using black Sharpies marker pen.
The letters are from a young Child’s spelling game (unknown). I coloured in the letters using a black Sharpie marker pen, and glued to the tag using Aleen’s tacky glue.

For added embellishment I attached 1 black button to top of the tags using Aleen’s tacky glue, and then tied the other 2 buttons to the colour co-ordinating fibre.
