Hello everyone! Ronda here today sharing with you a tag I created using lots of wonderful dies and texture fades. I am going to show you with a few simple touches how change the ordinary into extraordinary.
I started with a painted tag, just a few simple swipes across the background. Next I grabbed Tim Holtz's Honeycomb texture fade and sprayed it with some stream Colorwash spray.
I used the raised side and pushed the sprayed fade into the tag, finger walking around the fade pushing the onto the tag.
I love how it looks on the background. By pushing some areas harder than others you get the variations on the background.
Next I used walnut ink and rubbed it into the tag to give it a bit of a distressed look. I love how the brown ink really made the blues pop.
I love tissue paper, especially when I can turn it into a great embellishment with the help of Eileen Hull's 3-D fringed flower die.
After I die cut multiple tissue paper pieces, i spritzed them with some spray ink to give them a little color. I stacked the fringed tissue paper die cuts on top of one another and put a fabric brad in the center.
I used Tim Holtz's Mini Hearts set to die cut 5 hearts. I love the variety of colors found in this patterend paper set. It was the perfect combination for this tag. I used some distress ink around the edges to make them pop.
Next I die cut multiples of Tim Holtz's Mini Tickets. I inked the edges and stacked them on top of each other. On the smallest tag I used 3-D adhesive to pop it up from the rest.
I curled the sides of the hearts to make them pop against the tag. I also added in a date stamped image on the background and stitched around the entire tag.
I love the feel of this tag. It has that old world charm to it. The popped up ticket looks great with the fringed flower.
