well it is time for another creative expressions dt piece,
and my first proper tutorial...
so here is my krafty tag:
this tag uses the fab steampunk stamps again..
and this time i have used the tree as my focal image,
there are so many combinations to choose from in this set..
and they are very versatile..
so start with a blank kraft tag,
ink the large cog stamp,
using embossing ink,
cover with clear embossing powder and heat..this will make the images go clear
and they will act as a resist
next spritz the tag with water and then cover with
and dry with heat tool.
use a damp kitchen towel to remove stain
from embossed cogs.
then ink up small cog stamp,
using picket fence distress stain and stamp randomly.
i admit i used my heat tool,
i distressed the edges, to scuff them
and inked using vintage photo distress ink
then add liquid pearls to the centres of the cogs..
now stamp the tree, onto kraft .
again using picket fence distress stain,
dry and cut out
and set aside..
now for the wire tinsel,
take some thin silver wire and fold in half,
then twist the two pieces together..
staple to the tree
to create the tinsel
using the mini attacher..
i used two strands..
then add liquid pearls to the centres of the cog designs on the tree too..
cut a lace die cut border,
i used Tim's vintage lace
colour with antique linen and
then cover with clear embossing..
heat and repeat 3 times to create a glossy finish..
finally add some vintage ribbon,
coloured with distress stain
and some idea-ology
on a trinket pin...
hope all that helps and makes sense...
this could easily be made into a card rather than a tag..
have a fun and inky day!!!!
