If you haven't heard we are having a Tag Challenge! Find out details HERE to join the fun!
My Tag project for Altered Pages is this duo of tags I created. I had much fun making them and am over the moon with the result.
Start with two tags. Use a small piece of Washi Tape to secure them together for stamping and embossing. With dark ink and large stamp, stamp the image halfway on each tag.
I used coordinating embossing powder over the stamped image, set with heat tool. Heat embossing the image water proofs it, allowing me to use wet water paints over the tag.
Next, I sprayed the tags with water, then using orange and yellow water colours with a water brush painted over the tag. Then blotted with paper towel and dried with the heat gun. This muted the colours considerably.
When the tags were dry I stamped with a background text stamp randomly around the edges. For more vibrant color I then added more paint around the edges.
Finally, I chose a swirl background stamp and stamped around the edges of the tags. Yellow ribbons were the finishing touch!!! This was a lot of fun, I will be making more tags this month.
