I'm here today with a tag
that I made for my son's birthday gift a few days ago (I've already
profiled his gift card holder in a previous post). I wanted to add a little something extra so used some of my favorite Creative Inspirations Paints for a little extra pizazz.
first sponged the base with three colors of distress inks then sponged
over a stencil with more inks. Then I sponged around the edges of each
stencil opening with first Burn Sienna and then Autumn Wheat which gave the stencil some great shimmer!
stamped the next layer then started adding the embellishments. Copper
ball chain, chipboard brads, some metal photo corners and a fun
floral/burlap embellishment all came together to make a fun tag fit for a
The burlap was a little too light, so I dry brushed some Burnt Sienna
on it using my finger and used the scraps under the leather-look
"flower." I made the flower by misting and scrunching some circles of
cardstock and layering them with a brad in the center. Then I painted
them with Burnt Clay and Autumn Wheat. The flower winds up looking like leather every time.
The final touch was the leather cord at the top.
