I've made a couple of tags today , lots of Embossing powders and a little sparkle !
First a picture of the finished tags .
And this is how I made them . I cut two tags from mount board and sprinkled them with the new Shimmer Shakers before spritzing with water .
Next I stamped , rather randomly with Watering Can Archival ink, the Vintage Music stamp .
I then stamped the words from the Vintage Inspiation stamp set onto mount board and to colour the background I mixed a little of the Shimmer powder with water to make a wash .
These bits are made from corrugated card with bits of the top layer removed . I painted them with Sea Turtle paint and dried it thoroughly. I then added Perfect Medium randomly and added gold Embossing Powder, and after that was melted I repeated with Regal Arctic Aurora powder . I thought the paint was too bright , so I rubbed a bit of Chocolate Bronze Gilding Polish over the paint to tone it down . On the left is just the paint and on the right is where I've added the gilding polish.
To create these pieces I used mount board again and triple embossed with gold powder. I then added more powders randomly and melted them into the gold . I had to repeat this to allow the colours to mix . While still hot I stamped into the melted powder with the Butterfly Background stamp and allowed it to cool before removing the stamp .
You can see the mixed colours and dimensional effect here .
I finished the tags by sticking everything together as shown and adding a little lace and ribbon from my stash . I hope that you have enjoyed seeing how I created the tags .
