Last Monday I shared a card (True Love Letter Card) with you that featured the Nature Walk stamp set by Tim Holtz. Today I wanted to share another project featuring that stamp set. This tag is so amazingly quick to create. Hopefully it shows just how versatile the stamp set is!
Begin by applying Broken China Distress Ink using an ink blending tool to a #8 manila tag. Focus the ink on the top, right, and bottom edges of the tag. Leaving some manila uninked on the left lower side and center will create a highlight behind the sentiment. Use an ink blending tool along with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to apply speckles randomly to the tag using the Tim Holtz Speckles Layering Stencil.
Apply an inked edge to the tag using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using an ink blending tool.
Stamp the feather from the stamp set along the lower left side of the tag using Potting Soil Archival Ink.
Swipe the Broken China Distress ink pad randomly onto Crinkle Ribbon. Mist the ribbon with water to blend the ink on the ribbon. Dry the inked ribbon with a heat tool. Tie the ribbon around the tag over the top of the feather image. Add a Tiny Attacher staple to each side of the tag to hold the ribbon in place.
Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of manila cardstock using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Use a tearing ruler to help you tear along the edges of the sentiment. Brush the torn edges lightly with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. Adhere the sentiment to the front of the tag using adhesive foam squares. Place the sentiment next to the bow making sure it doesn’t cover the feather.
Stamp the bird egg image on a piece of manila cardstock using Broken China Distress Ink. Use the Speckles Layering Stencil to add specks to the egg using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and an ink blending tool. Cut out the egg. Brush the edges of the egg lightly with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. Adhere the egg to the tag placing it over the bow and the sentiment.
So quick and easy! This tag design makes a great greeting to pass along to a friend either on a tag or modified onto a card.
