Keys is the current challenge at Inspiration Avenue hosted by the ever so talented Hettienne from Her Grace: to use a key or keys or the metaphor of a key in your creations. This theme offers so many choices and possibilities, so it was time to make a decision (lol)
This is a very simple and surprisingly quick tag. I absolutely enjoyed the process of using various techniques: first I coloured and patterend the background of a plain Manila tag with a That Special Touch mask and distress inks. I had already printed a key definition from the web which I gessoed and transferred to the tag. And then it is all in rubbing it down gently but firm and allow the paper to dry. With a little bit of water I rubbed off the paper to disclose the script but left some paper so that some areas are a bit obscured - an effect I quite like
The last steps were to stamp the music key (stamp: 7Gypsies) with Coffee Archival ink onto the tag and to attach a bit of leftover twine. Petra.
