MAHALO from Hawaii! I am having a wonderful vacation on the gorgeous island of Maui. I will you could all be here with me!.
Today is Heartfelt Creations' Wednesday Inspiration Day!
Today we are showcasing the Blushing Rose Collection!
I love tags and so I created a tag that can also be placed on a card base
and used as a card if you prefer!
120 lb. white card-stock, violet card-stock, X-Press It Blending Card-Stock, paper trimmer, embossing/die machine, Misti Stamping Pad, sponge dauber, grey pearls, oval decorative nesting die in two sizes, Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - (BV00, BV11, BV17, G21, G24 YG61, YG63), 70% alcohol for background blending, water brush, purple Multiliner and nested oval die.
- The Blushing Rose Stem Cling Stamp Set was stamped twice and the sentiment was stamped once on X-Press It Blending Card Stock. The image was colored using Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. I used BV00, BV11, BV17, G21, G24, YG61 and YG63. The sentiment background was marbleized using G21 and BV00 with 70% alcohol. I usually apply this with a brush or I put alcohol in a designated water brush and touch the tip to the various colors to create a marbleized look. I applied some dots with a purple liner pen.
- The rose Stems were cut using the Blushing Rose Stem Die. The base of the tag was die cut with the Eyelet Oval Die. I used petite nesting oval die for the remaining layers as shown in the picture. The designer paper was selected from the Blushing Rose paper Collection. The edges where lightly sponged with Memento LuLu Lavender Ink. Designer Adhesive - Clear was applied to the edges of the sentiment layer. Prills (I Cannot Tell A Lilac) were applied.
- The layers were adhered using dimensional dots. The foam dots in between each layer give the tag some great dimension and interest. The Blushing Rose Stem images were applied to the top and bottom of the tag. The card was embellished with dark grey pearls.
- This tag also makes a great focal image that can be adhered to a card - It's not only fun but versatile!
