August Tag

This month's tag is a *FAST* one.
I've done this tag, from my camp spot since we are celebrating our
summer vacation. Kids, dog and husband around, and I thought,
you might find yourself in the same position.
So here we go:
Supplies needed: Ranger Craft tag 8# - Color Box white -
Clear embossing powder - Prima Chicken-Wire stamp -
Distress reinker: Spun Sugar, Bundle Sage and Worn Lipstick -
Distress ink Frayed Burlap - Iridescent Medium (Windsor & Newton)
or a Pearl Mist - lace - flowers & leaves - ornate plate -
Silver Stickles - White Puffy Paint - self adhesive pearls - hot gluegun - heat tool.
Take out a Craft tag and your Chicken-Wire stamp.
Ink your stamp up with a white pigment ink. I used Color box.
Stamp over your entire tag.
Pour some clear embossing powder over your stamped tag and heatset it.
Get some Spun Sugar(reinker)and a little Iridescent medium onto your craft sheet. Spray some water too and mix the mediums a little with a brush.
Get your tag all covered up. heat set it.
You could do a second layer to get an intenser color. Or even add a little Worn Lipstick (reinker)
Mix some Iridescent medium with a drop of Bundle Sage (reinker) and a few spritzes of water.
Paint a small doily (about 3 inc) with the shiny color mix. Heat dry it.
Make some pleads in your doily to create a rozette. Staple your center to stabilise. Set a side.
Add a thin strip of hot glue, at the left side of your tag. Add a piece of wide lace.
Do the same at the right side. I cut my lace a little too wide because I wanted to ruffle it a little. Glue your doily on top of it. Hanging off a little to the left.
Get another big flower of make one your own and glue it to your tag.
Take some scraps of white lace and glue them to your cluster, something like this.
Take an ornamental frame, (mine came from the Alterations Tag Die) and cover it with a thin layer of Puffy Paint.
Heat set it and add another layer (I added the second with my finger) and again heat set it.
Add some Frayed Burlap Distress ink to the outher edges.
Get another piece of lace and glue it to your tag.
Glue your ornamental frame, over the laces, to your tag and glue a little rose on it. Distress the edges of your tag.
Adorn your lace with some silver stickles and a few pearls or dewdrops.
Add your Month, in this case... August, to the ornamental frame.
Place some leaves at your cluster and ink up your tag, even over the tule, where it need some ink. Add your ribbon or lace at the top.
And you are done!

What a fabulous tag! Thanks for sharing your technique details!

I made a couple of your fabric flowers and created a link to your blog and the tutorials at MCS.

I'm finally getting the hang of using the puffy paint, I don't think I was using enough when I first tried it. I still need to go back and try it on the baby wipe flowers, but it turned out great on some chipboard! Thanks for your inspiration and fabulous wealth of knowledge! ~ Blessings
