Octopode tags using squidgy Pins

I was recently sent some Squidgy Pins to play with. I have made a pair of tags using them.

This is what I did with them

Tag 1

Stamp your image twice, once directly onto your tag and again onto a scrap of paper to use as a mask.
Mask your image and spray your tag with ink, remove all the stars from the star sheet and lay it on your tag and masked image. Spray with a different shade of ink, remove the stencil and the mask and heat dry your tag.
Colour your image.Spray eight of the larger stars you removed from the sheets with the yellow, heat dry. Attach the stars to the tag as shown.Add a quote and a piece of ribbon. Finish by edging with black paint, and hand drawn lines.

Tag 2

Colour the tag and a few of the cogs with Pink spay and heat dry. Using a glue like pritt stick, attach the wooden cogs to an acylic block in a random pattern. Put a small amount of paint onto your craft mat, tap your cogs on the acrylic block into this, and then stamp onto your tag, repeat this until you are happy with your background pattern.
Stamp your image onto a piece of white paper scrap and colour in. Glue the image in place. Remove your cogs from the acrylic block, they should now be a nice colour combination of the spray and the paint, attach them to your tag as shown. Paint an arrow with black paint and attach it to the cogs.
Finish the tag with the black paint, ribbon and a quote
