I really need to stay on top of things…..last day of the month again, and just getting Tim's Tag done.
What I really liked about this tag, was the use of the corrugated cardboard..cool right!!
I ordered a couple more of those FB books from My Social Book, and the cardboard they packaged them in was perfect!!
Not to thick and easy to peel off parts of the top layer.
After distressing it a bit, I had to cut it into a tag shape.
Tim used his foil/glue.
I could not find my foil…it isn't Tim's but I remember doing this many moons ago where I would use Aleene's Tack it Over and Over and then apply the foil to the tacky surface.
I knew I had to get on this tag…so I came up with a different option.
I decided to use gold embossing powder.
I used a make up sponge to pick up some Versa Mark, pounced it through the stencil, then added the embossing powder and heat set it.
See how it shines..not the same as the foil..but use what we have right ;)
I then flicked some black paint on as well.
I like the distressed look.
Now for the tag that goes under this.
The butterfly die cut also comes with a matching embossing folder….love that…Thanks Tim :)
I embossed the butterflies and then added some colour.
I liked the colour, but then kind of mucked it up by adding more colour :(
So to rectify this, with a light hand I picked up some black paint on my make up sponge and grazed over the embossed part of the butterflies.
Lined up the two tags and adhered them together.
I added a word plaque after adding some paint to it.
I wanted to add a bit more spring colour to this tag.
Bonus, I got 2 corrugated butterflies out of this project when I cut the shapes out :)
Here is my tag again :)
I added the same eyelash wool to the top of the tag as I used to attach the word plaque with.
I am not sure why….but not loving my tags I have done so far this year.
Oh well…they were still fun to make and that is what is important right :)
I hope you all have a very Creative Day :)
