Tag 5 Poinsettias
Well I'm back with the final tag of this set . Although I don't use dies a lot the main part of this tag is created using a lovely Poinsettia Die by Sue Wilson.
Again the background was painted in the same way as described for tag 1 . I mixed a little of the green paint with texture paste and spread it through the Acorn Leaves stencil. Once dry I rubbed the gilding polish mix over the raised areas and around the edges of the tag .
I stamped the Flourish as shown using a mixture of glitter and white embossing powder . I added a little lace from my stash along one edge .
To make the Poinsettias I used the lovely Poinsettia Die by Sue Wilson to cut two large , two medium and one small flowers , also two centres from Coconut White foundations Card . These act as supports for the flowers which are cut from a very fine calico and an embroidered net . Yes the Die cuts fabric ! I cut two pieces of each fabric for each piece of card . The fabric is layered over the card , one piece on the petals and the second at an angle , first the calico as seen at the bottom right of the picture. Then layer the net over the calico in the same way. I then stuck the medium onto the large flowers . Before attaching the centres I stuck glitter to them and added a pearl in the centre . Once the glue is dry the card can be lifted a little to add dimension to the flowers .
I stuck the flowers in place as shown and added a few pearl flourishes from my stash .
