Hello everyone, here I am with a tag that I made for the November challenge of the Country View Challenges. The lovely CraftyField will be your hostess, so she chose the theme: Hand stamped. It means a stamped image has to be the focal point of your project and you mustn't use digital stamping.
So I made a masculine Christmas tag.
And here is my background tutorial.
I stamped onto a 300gsm watercolour paper with one of the background stamps from the Perfect Plaids stamp set. I heat embossed with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. Then I started to ink with different greens (Mowed Lawns, Shabby Shutters).
Then I cut out a tag with the largest die of the Sizzix Framelits die set, Tag Collection.
Since the tag was larger than the stamped background I put extra inking to the bottom and the top. Then I inked the edges of the tag with Vintage Photo.
Then I was about to hide the lack of stamping on the bottom, so I added design tape stripes.
In the end, I glued my tag onto a few millimetres bigger brown tag. I distressed the edges of the brown tag, then I spattered my tag using Vintage Photo Spray Stain.
Then I adhered the stamped image, the die-cut text and the embellishments to the tag.
