This winter is feeling very long, we've had the coldest February in quite a few years! I'm ready for it to just be over!! To help out with my winter blues, I decided to use bright, cheerful colours for my project today.
I started by die cutting two pieces of pink cardstock with the largest tag from the brand new Chunky Stitched Tag Dies..love these! I apologize in advance if you see a lot of projects with these. I cut two because the cardstock I used is quite flimsy so adhering them together gave a lot of stability. I cut the second largest tag, which is also a stitched tag, out of white cardstock and layered them together with foam adhesive.
Because these dies do not have the ribbon hole in them, I was able to punch two holes at the top and make a flat knot. This is easy. Simply feed each end of the ribbon into the two holes on the FRONT of the tag and come up back through to the front!
I stamped one of the beautiful flowers from the Just Because Stamp and Die Set with Versamark Ink onto some Mixed Media paper. I heat embossed with Silver embossing powder. I used one shade of purple and green of my Tombow Dual Brush Pens to do some super simple watercolour.
For the sentiment, I chose the Big Hello Die and cut it four times out of grey cardstock. I adhered both the flower and the sentiment with liquid glue. After looking at this tag for a couple of minutes, I decided it needed just a little something more.
I die cut one of the sweet butterflies from the Mini Butterfly Dies out of the same Mixed Media paper and used the same purple and a pink colour to make it pretty.
And of course a little sparkle was in order so I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen on the big Hello and the butterfly. Because the Tombow markers are reactive to water/liquid, they reacted in a very cool way on the butterfly. Almost looks tie dyed!!
Isn't that sparkle fabulous?!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I had so much fun making this sweet, happy tag. I hope you enjoyed and got to pick up a few goodies from the shop as well :)
Until next time...stay crafty!!
