Antique Flower Tag.

Good evening,  hope you have all had a good day.   Tonight   I would like to share another tag with you, which I made for Sue & Harvey of Imagination Craft's in September 2015.

Cut out a large tag shape from white card.   Punch a hole in the centre top of the tag.   Paint the front of the tag with the Peanut MDF paint.   Lay the stencil  onto the tag and spread some White stencil Medium over the design, using the metal spatula.   Remove the stencil and dry with a heat gun until it 'bubbles up' a little.

Paint over the front of the tag with Antique Gold Starlight paint.   Rub over with a piece of cut'n'dry foam and some Black Soot distress ink.   Next use all four colours of Alchemy Wax, rubbing lightly over the surface.   When dry, go over again with the Black Soot distress ink.   Using a black ink pad, randomly stamp the hessian stamp over the tag.   Glue a piece of gold ribbon around the bottom of the tag, securing it with some sticky tape, on the reverse of the tag, adding a ribbon bow to the bottom right.

Cut another tag exactly the same as the first one and glue this to the back of the original tag to hide the cut  ends of the ribbon.   Make a stand from more white card and colour this roughly with Black Soot distress ink

                                                    Glue a gold heart to the front of the tag.

Die-cut two of the smaller flowers and  then die-cut two of the larger flowers, using the Tim Holtz dies.   Paint the flowers with the Orange Oxidized and  Blue Starlight paints.   Punch out  four circles and paint the with the orange Starlight paint.   Shape the circles from the back, making them a slightly dished shape, then glue them to the flower centres using silicone glue.   Glue the flowers to the tag front.  

Using some of the gold ribbon, make four loops and glue between the flowers, using Magi-bond glue.   Lastly add some ribbon to the top of the tag.

Hope you like this and you enjoy your visit.   Thanks for taking the time to stop and read my blog and if you leave me a comment, thanks again.     I will be back again soon with another project, until then be happy and keep smiling, it is good for the soul lol!
