Celebrate Tag

Hi Bloggers.

I'm running a Stamping Masterclass locally today. Should be fun!

I have an MDF Tag to share today -

I painted a Scalloped MDF Tag with CS White Gesso. I added some Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink using a Smoothie as shown. I used Picked Raspberry to cover the sides and theback of the tag. I dried them using my heat tool and then applied a second coat of ink to deepen the colour.

I spritzed some water into my hand and then clapped over my tag to form splats. I left it a few seconds and then blotted dry with a piece of Kitchen Roll.

I misted some Pastel Blue Chalk Mister onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I used this to ink up a section of the Justrite Basketweave Background Stamp and stamped it on the left hand side of my tag.

I stamped some foliage from the Justrite Create a Flower Garden Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival along the bottom of the tag. I cut a couple of flowers out of Black Card and added them to the bottom of my tag too.

I inked all over the tag with Clear Perfect Medium, added clear CS Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and heat set. I added some more and and powder twice more. Whilst the powder was still moulten I sprinkled some CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost over.

I cut the smallest oval from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies out of Black Card. I cut the sentiment from the Justrite Best Wishes Sentiment Dies out of Coconut White Card. I cut the largest butterfly die in the A2 Card Front Basics Die Set out of Black Card twice. I cut the smallest butterfly die out of Coconut White Card - I inked through the die on one with Picked Raspberry and the other with Carved Pumpkin.

I swiped both of the Distress Ink Pads across my Craft Sheet and misted with water. I dragged some Blue White American Seam Binding through the ink. I dried it using my Heat Tool and added it to my tag.

Thanks for stopping by.
