Metal Tag Bracelet

Continuing with the theme of jewelry, I have a second bracelet made for the “Artist in Residence” Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Design Team using their new metal dog tags.


Enjoy following along with this step-by-step picture tutorial.



Apply droplets of ink from StazOn Wide Mouth Bottles
(Blazing Red, Vibrant Violet and Teal Blue)
to a metal dog tag using Ink Droppers. 
Mottle the ink by pouncing it with
a small piece of an InkBlusher.  Let dry.
Punch a hole on the opposite end to match the pre-fabricated hole.


 Apply a few drops of Matte GlazOn to an
InkBlusher and gently dab the surface of the colored tag.
Let dry.

Stamp Paisley Swirls (Penny Black) on the dog tag in Cotton White StazOn Opaque.
Let dry.


Remove the blue protective backing from back of the tag.
Bend the piece to add a slight curve.



Finish the bracelet by adding assorted beads with elastic cording.


Thank you for sharing your time with me!
