Wendy Vecchi Tag Topper with Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals

Hi Bloggers.

I have a tag for you today -

I started by inking a piece of Coconut White Card with Broken China Distress Oxide. I placed the Wavy Mask on top and lightly misted with water. I removed the mask and blotted with Kitchen Roll. I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide.

I painted a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Tag Topper Art Part and a The Guys Art Part with CS White Gesso. Once dry, I added Broken China Distress Oxide to them both.

I stamped the gentleman from the Studio 490 3 Cheers for Art Stamp Set onto The Guys Art Part using Watering Can Archival. I heat set the ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Watering Can Archival and then glued my gentleman in place.

I inked up the large text stamp from the same stamp set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added Clear Perfect Medium to the Tag Topper. I covered with CS Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals and heat set using a Low Speed Heat Tool. Keeping the heat on, I sprinkled over some CS Tropic Pearl and Midnght Blue Embossing Crystals. Once all moulten, I added my stamp and left to set for a few minutes. I peeled away my stamp and added a little CS Phill Martin Chic Moss Mica Powder. I glued my Tag Topper to my card. I punched a hole using my Crop-a-dile.

I added some Broken China Distress Oxide to my Craft Sheet. I misted with water and dragged a piece of Blue White American Seam Binding through it. I dried it with my Heat Tool and repeated the process with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide. Once dry, I added it to my tag.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi Julia
    Great tag, lovely colour Jan x

  3. Morning Julia, such a brilliant tag, love the sentiment/saying, it is so true. Have a great day everyone. Bx

  4. Good Morning Julia

    I hope you are well.

    Gorgeous tag love the colours you have used here. I also like the sentiment, I think sentiments are a really important and thought provoking part of a card. So often people make a beautiful card and then don't give any thought to the message with it. I know some would not agree but I personally love sentiments like yours here today.

    Have a great day Julia.
