Art: Paws For A Cause Keychain by Artist KiniArt
Motivation... I've been saving this Marino Bay apparel tag since last summer - not knowing what I was going to do with it, but thinking that tossing it away would be so wasteful... You see, Marino Bay uses a unique extra stiff pressed (cardboard?) material for their sports apparel tags... It was so strong, it reminded me of a thin masonite. I took the Marino Bay tag and added india ink paw prints to cover much of the brand's lettering. I then stamped some of my favorite words and added hand-painted flowers using white-out, and Stickles acid-free sparkly paint. Once dry, I added a split-ring through the existing hole in the tag, and to that, I added a ball-lock keyring.
