Acetate tag

This is my take on the re-use, recycle theme. The tag base is made from acetate cut from dishwasher tablets packaging. Then the coloured parts are sheets from the base of my spray-box, so have been coloured with various shades of Glimmer Mist. The acetate was sprayed with Glimmer Mist, too.

Colour: Glimmer Mist, Stazon, Ranger white pen
Stamps: Paperartsy
Other: Papermania jewelled brad, eyelet and ribbon from my stash.

Oh YES this is brilliant - the acetate has a wonderful sheen to it - I bet it is even more gorgeous in 'real life'.

Brilliant tag, I have these stamps, I love the way you have used part of the image. And yes the bottomg ofthe spray box is great! I purposely cut paper to fit now and send a few bits in with my trades.

Oh I do like that! It's clever!
I must remember to put a piece of paper in the bottom of my 'glimmer Mist box', especially if you can get some lovely effects like

I've only just started to play with my Glimmer Mists, so I must thank you for tip re:acetate, I didn't realise you could spray onto acetate, I didn't think it would 'take', but obviously I was wrong, going by the lovely tag you've made. Thanks for that,
