Hi there! Today I'm sharing this tag on the Prima blog. I created a steampunk style tag using an assortment of beautiful and shimmery Mica Powders along with a variety of fun embellishments.
I created this tag for my dear son Jerry who is in the process of completing his flight training in order to obtain his private pilot's license. He has passed his solo flight and now is preparing for the next phase.
For the focal point, I adhered a pair of metal trinket goggles to the fun resin face flower:
For shimmery goodness, I mixed the following Mica Powders with Soft Matte Gel: Gold, Rust, Frozen Lake then randomly applied to a couple embellishments as well as the background:

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have enjoyed my projects. Please be sure to stop by the Prima blog and see the awesome DT inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)
