Today I am sharing another tag I made for CHA in January. I found a stash of project images that I had never edited. I didn’t even write down supplies! I was in such a last minute crunch that I just made things fast and furious. This one is pretty simple to make so I can actually remember what I did and what colors I used to create it.
I started by covering a manila tag with Sticky Back Canvas. I embossed the tag with the Book Covers Texture Fade with the oval center.
I used an ink blending tool to color the canvas with Wild Honey Distress Ink. After applying the Wild Honey, I skimmed over the surface with Vintage Photo Distess Ink and an ink blending tool, applying color to just the raised areas of the design. I brushed more Vintage photo along the edges to darken them.
I embossed a scrap of smooth natural colored cardstock witht he same embossing folder. I cut around the edge of the oval design. I blended Vintage Photo around the edges of the piece in toward the center. I stamped a phrase onto the oval and then adhered it to the tag matching it up with the design on the canvas.
I added machine stitching along the top and bottom edges and around the oval.
To embellish the tag, I die-cut two pieces of crinoline with the Tattered Pinecone die. After die-cutting the crinoline, I colored them with Distress Stain (Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw). I dried the pieces of crinoline, brushed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and then assembled them according to the package directions. I adhered the two assembled flowers along with two leaves (leaves from Prima Holiday Lights Sprays).
I think this tag turned out so pretty and yet it was simple and quick! I absolutely love the way the Tattered Pinecone die works with crinoline. The flowers look so dainty and vintage!
