Good Morning Crafters
Today we are sharing a step by step by Elaine.
She has created a birdie tag using products from Personal Impressions website.
To make the tag you will need the following:
Large Rangers Manila Tag
Dylusion How does you garden Grow Stamp Set
Rangers Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Rays Stencil
Rangers Texture Paste
Rangers Glossy Accents
Piece of old paper from a book
Black & White Marker Pens
First you need a large tag, Ranger tags are brilliant for taking lots of inks! Use Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade at the top, Fossilized Amber in the middle and Cracked Pistachio at the bottom with Crushed Olive to cover the tag.
Next apply texture paste through the Tim Holtz Rays Stencil. You can mix the paste with paint. Also stamp some background stamps using a similar colour to the background.
Also apply black & white paint to your craft mat and use a top off a old bottle to stamp circles onto the tag, next spritz water onto the paint & with a brush splatter paint over the tag.
Next stamp the images onto watercolour card and colour them in using distress inks, squidge them onto your craft mat and using a water brush colour the images in.
Next stamp onto the tag, it doesn't matter if the image isn't perfect as you will be fussy cutting the image out and applying them with 3D gel. One of the best things with Dyan's stamps and techniques she doesn't do neat and tidy, they are her words not mine! Also stamp around the edges with the leaf stamp and colour them in with a black marker and apply white dots to them.
Cut out the images you have stamped and apply to the tag using 3D gel. I have used a glitter pen around the edges of the flower and applied glossy accents to the centre of the flowers.
Next find some ribbon & bits of wool to add finishing touches to your tag.
