Altered Silver Luggage Tag

Today I have an altered luggage tag. My friend, Bonnie (and I know she'll read this!), got a few of these babies as a wedding favor. As they are, they are just kind of blah (no offense to the bride for picking these out). When I saw the raised hearts, I knew I had to add alcohol inks to them. I contemplated sanding the silver to get a brushed metal look as I had here. I decided to go against my tendency to always want to scuff up metal and leave it alone.

I actually applied the alcohol ink direct from the nozzle, which I touched it to the heart for only a second or two. The ink came out in a small circle and  looked like it would spill over but then self leveled into the beveled heart shape.

The handle I used Melody Ross's Chip Art Tool. I picked these tiny letters up cheap at Scrapbook Territory on clearance. I contemplated even trying the tools on the band because I've made attempts in the past to imprint the metal stamps into imitation leather with no results whatsoever. But this band, I actually could press the stamps with my thumb to get a nice indentation.

After stamping, I used my index finger to white wash the band and accent the quote. I took a metallic (red) paint pen and colored in my hearts (one on each side of my quote). The quote by the way is from last year's version of Alice in Wonderland. Yes... the hearts reminded me of the Red Queen. And I was going to put a photo of Riley with the Queen  or as Alice. I used distress ink to give the band a red edge, however it didn't look right and I was able to take it right off with water hours later.

I found myself in Japantown yesterday at the Daiso store and found a roll of Alice in Wonderland tape. Travel. . . luggage tag. .. .match made in heaven. Since this was packing tape, it is shiny and did not photograph well as it looks unfinished around the edges in the photo. So again, because of the tape, I had to keep this piece as a luggage tag.

I do not comment, however after browsing through a few of the comments on "Altered Silver Luggage Tag".
I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or do some of the comments look like they are
left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow
everything new you have to post. Could you post a list of
the complete urls of your social networking pages like your twitter feed,
Facebook page or linkedin profile?
