February tag

Here it is:

and some close ups:



Now, I got a question to
explain step by step how
I complete a tag, so I gave
it a thought and thought
why not???

so here we go:
I'll first show you the picture
then below the picture there is
how I did it.

products list:
Ranger Manila craft tags #8 size
Script stamp - Calender stamp (or printed out)
Archival in coffee (or any other brown permanent ink)
Distress ink: Victorian Velvet - Bundle Sage - Scattered Straw - Frayed Burlap
Ink blending tool, or any other ink foam.
Stickles: Diamond - Mini Minster filled with water - heat tool - gesso -
Maya Road chipboard frame - glitter - tulle - lace - paper towel - hot glue gun
flowers - leaves - stapler or needle and thread - pearl strand

here is what we start with



Swipe with your distress inkpads, Bundle Sage and Scattered Straw,
over your craftsheet. (if you have none, a placemat will do just fine)
swipe them in vertical direction and leave a little space
in the middle. (I'll show you on a white piece of paper)

The colors are hard to tell when they are
sitting on your craftsheet.

then spray it with water from your mini mister
and lay your tag in it.

Turn it over and heat dry it.

it should look something like this.



now, take your Victorian Velvet inkpad and
add a little stripe on your craftsheet, spray with water.
place your tag in it, the pink ink should come in the middle
of your tag.
turn it over and heat dry it.

take a paper towel

tear the corner off.

lay the corner over your tag and ink up
your script stamp using Archival Coffee.

Stamp on your tag, like the picture shows.

re-position the paper towel corner

ink up your stamp again and stamp on your tag.

it should look something like this.

then ink up your stamp again (only the bottom part)
and stamp it at the top of your tag.

it should look something like this.

cut a piece of tulle

To color your tulle you swipe over your craftsheet
with Victorian Velvet inkpad, spray it with water

get your tulle covered up with the color.

carefully dry it with your heatgun.

assemble your tulle and staple or stitch it down
to your tag.

take some lace and add it to the bottom of your tag.


get your chipboard frame and take them apart.
the middle section will get a thin layer of gesso.

for the outside frame: Dab gesso over the chipboard
with your finger.

it should look something like this.
then while the gesso is still wet......



sprinkle glitter over it, let it air dry.
When you don't have glitter, you can use diamond stickles.
of course you'll have the frame dry first, before you
applie the stickles.

it should look something like this.

Place the frame elements back together

glue the frame down with hot glue, or
any other strong hold glue. I only glued the bottom
so that it stands more out.

place your flowers and leaves as you like.
You can spray your flowers with a glimmermist
for extra glimmer. I used dazzling diamonds.


stamp your calender, and distress the edges.
Ink the edges with Frayed Burlap.

ink the backside too

crumple it up

get it unfolded and add another layer ink
using your foam tool.

glue it down to your tag.

For the sentiment you can write it down or
use rubons, or stamps. I used little tiny
alpha stickers from KaiserCraft.
Distress the edges of your tag,
(using your paper-distresser or like I did,
using your scissors)
and ink them up using Frayed Burlap.
your tag is almost finished.

Place your pearl strand, (I created a swirl)
and glue it down with hot glue or
Glossy Accents. Get some ribbons out,
and attach them to your tag.

I hope you like this tutorial.
(let me know please)

Anna.... challenged me, so basicly
it is her debt. lol

hugs,
Paulien
