Here’s a tag trio that I made recently –
I made these tags with packaging material that comes with arty products. I first cut out tags from the material, then punched eyelet holes into them. I started the background by applying modeling paste through a stencil.
I then applied white gesso over the tags, followed by some acrylic paints. I spritzed water to spread the paint around. I then made an impression of a wide-rimmed container using acrylics to get some ‘stains’.
Following this, I pounced acrylics over a circle-shapes stencil, and added Posca marker circles inside. I then stamped some text using dye inks, and inked the edges using distress inks.
I made the focal flowers on different pieces of paper. I first stamped the flower shapes using dye inks, then added color using watercolor pencils and a water brush pen. I then used oil-based pencils for deeper colors. I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them to the tags.
I stamped the sentiments with dye inks, fussy cut around them, and inked their edges using distress ink. I also added a bit of outlining at the edges using a multiliner before I adhered them to the tag.
I completed the tags by adhering diecut eyelets that I colored with Copic marker. Ta da!
With this project, I’m joining these challenges –
