1. Using 30 gsm cardstock cut tag
to approx 9 cm x 16 cm
2. Squeeze a little light blue and
white acrylic paint in to a pallet.
Above I have used Americana Spa
Blue and Warm White.
3. Apply one coat of blue and dry
with a heat tool.
4. Turn over and apply one coat to
the back.
Note: This is optional but I find it
is the best way of stopping the tag
from curling.
5. Pick up a small amount of
white on a square brush and start
to drag horizontality across the
tag to give the appearance of
6. Pour A little Adirondack
blending solution into a small
plastic container and have a small
paintbrush and a clean sponge
applicator to hand.
7. Apply small dots of Raspberry,
Pool and Red Pepper Alcohol Ink
onto the applicator along with a
little blending solution and
pounce onto the tag starting at the
top work the ink half way down.
8. Pour a little blending solution
onto the clean sponge applicator
and pounce gently blending and
fading the alcohol ink into the
background as you work down.
9. Dip the end of a small
paintbrush into the pot containing
the blending solution and dab on
top of the alcohol ink, this will
cause it to disperse and create
interesting patterns.
10. Once dry spray with a light
coat of Americana matte spray
11. Pick up some Chipped Saphire
Distress ink onto a blending tool
and lightly blend onto the edges
of the tag.
12. It should now look something
like this.
13. Now its ready to stamp.
I have used stamps from two of
my sets, Altered Easter and
Nature. Above I have stamped at a
slight angle and painted in some
grass with Willow Alcohol ink
14. I have stamped this tag using
Stazon but you could use
15. To finish I have tied the tag
with fibres from Maya Road.
