Chaos Swap Tags

I signed up for the Chaos swap on All Things Tim. For those of you who may not be familiar with the Chaos Boards that Tim did here is a link to his. I have the tag in the lower left hand corner - that's right the little one that is horizontal - that baby is 1 3/4 by 3 3/8! I also volunteered to take the last one in the 3rd group and I have the same tag.

So for group #1 - For the Birds

Started out with this bird charm and I made a mold with Ranger's Mold and Pour - my first attempt at using the Mold and Pour and I really like how it turned out:

Then filled the mold with black UTEE:

Then put some paint dabber onto the bird and the details really came out. Just a little, worked in with your fingers and then wiped off - quickly:

Finally the finished tag - For the Birds - I also put paint on one of Tim's ornate plates:

Now for Group #3 - Unlock

The Key Plate was cut from Grunge Board using Tim's Hardware Findings Sizzix Die (cuts like butter). I then sparingly and randomly pounced on Gold Acrylic Paint leaving the bubbles and some of the grunge showing. Hit it with a heat gun and then put Black Acrylic Paint over and wiped off right away and then hit with a wet towel - looks like old metal:

Added some of the Gold Paint Dabber to a key:

Then ink, stamp and hardware up - Unlock:

These were fun to make and I can't wait to see what all the other tags look like!

Happy Creating!

Great tags Kat--Is that mold & pour flexible when set so you can pop the birds out...I have always made Sculpey molds but maybe it is time to take a step up!?!? Beautiful work as always.....
