Day three's tag is probably the most involved of the six but if you break it up into parts it's much less intimidating. I borrowed this idea from a Texas Tuesday post on Tina's blog a few weeks ago - her cowboy was lassoing (I know, that's how you spell it! Weird, huh?) a star. Tying the little tiny rope will be much easier if you have three hands but if that's the case, you probably don't have much time to make stuff with your work in the circus but for the rest of you, just be patient.
Here are all the pieces. The Texas Heart was embossed in red and everything else was stamped in Memento's Tuxedo Black. Colored pencil for the Cowboy and the TEXAS and the cut out part of the Texas, Our Texas stamp is Danube Blue and Paris Dusk lightly dragged across.
Just wanted to show that I cut out the TEXAS from the Texas Collage stamp. How convenient that it's the perfect size! Also the Weathered Wood stamp is around the edge in Potter's Clay and Rich Cocoa from Memento. More on this stamp another day.
I put foam tape on the west side but I opted for a flat double stick on the east. It sort of looks like it's coming out of the tag.
Get out your glasses and sharp scissors! If you want your Cowboy popped up (insert a Viagra joke here), you'll have to cut some very small pieces of foam tape. Any time you cut something out so intricately, it really needs special attention to make sure it's adhered well.
The cord was tied to the Texas Heart - the foam tape holds it in place - and Diamond Glaze adheres it to his hand and keeps it coiled. Any glue that dries clear will do. Again, spend a little more time making sure it's good and stuck! Wire would also work and might be easier to deal with but it might also get a little kinky... and not in a good way.
The tacky plastic star came from the dreaded Hobby Lobby but it was the only thing I could find in the right size. I reluctantly used Wonder Tape to stick it down because now it's there forever and ever.
