Large Tag


Paula here again, I'm showing a stamped tag today (will be showing another quite similar in a weeks time) - the basis is a large manila no.10 tag by Ranger and that's where the fun began for me.....I started off using Dylusions ink sprays in Vibrant Turquoise, Pure Sunshine and Squeezed Orange BUT I didn't spray them directly onto the tag, I sprayed them onto a non stick mat and wiped the tag into each colour individually. I then added some Distress ink in Peacock Feathers along the top.....then I spritzed the Dylusions inks lightly in places to add a bit more colour on to the tag. I then embossed the tag with a hexagon pattern. Next, I took some sand paper and sanded all the edges and over the embossed design.

I used the grass looking stamp from the Spring Sprung set by Tim Holtz, I stamped firstly in Peeled Paint and then over stamped this in Gathered Twigs - I've used the alphabet stamp from the School Desk set by Tim Holtz in the background using black ink.....I've also added some rub ons. Using Barn Door distress ink I stamped the flourish from the Spring Sprung stamp set. I stamped the rabbit, again from the Spring Sprung set, trimmed him out, added some Copic highlights using 2 shades of grey. I then coloured some paper using a Promarker then over stamped with the butterfly, trimmed image out and added to tag....last touch, was to add a metal clip.

Ohhh, love this, the background is amazing (love the idea of the sprays on the craft mat first, adds real dept). Superb stamping too and the metal clip is the perfect finishing touch!

This is fab! I have yet to use my giant tags as tags (rather than folded into cards).
