This is the fifth Friday of July which means that over at A Vintage Journey we have a Tag Friday post for you.
My tag began life from a mop up background from a previous project where I was using Distress Paints and the paint that was left over I mopped up onto a separate scrap piece of card. I die cut a tag from the coloured background using Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate Die.
I applied Black Soot Distress Paint to the mini number layering stencil and then spritzed with water. The stencil was then placed face down onto the background and dabbed with a piece of kitchen towel. I then removed the stencil and dried with a heat tool.
I stamped the winged girl from the Winged Things stamp set onto a second mop up background and then cut her out and added her to my tag.
I added dimension to her wings with a second stamping and added a 'love' tag which I die cut from a background piece of card using Tim Holtz Labels Thinlits die and then stamped the wording love onto the tag. I also applied Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges of the tag. For further interest I also added random Remnant Rubs to the background, along with delicate splatters of white paint along with scratchy paint lines using an old credit card.
I decided to add my tag to a card which can then be used for a birthday and I repeated some of the techniques onto the background.
