My Poppy Tag

Hi there Followers, Friends and Visitors,

A very happy Saturday afternoon to you all.   I just thought I would post my blog earlier today, just for a change.

Today I would like to share a tag with you all which I made for Imagination Crafts back in February 2013.   For this tag, I used Imagination's beautiful Poppy gilding stamp set.

Make a tag shape.   Colour with the Victorian velvet and scattered straw distress inks.   Stamp the poppy stamp in black onto the tag at the top and bottom.    Add a little black soot  DI around the edges.

Stamp the corner stamp from the same set in all four corners, using a black ink pad.     Stamp the same corner stamp again but this time in Versamark, stamping slightly to to one side of the original image, then heat emboss with gold embossing powder.

Stamp the dotted swirl  (from my stash, sorry not sure of the make)  in black on the left side of the tag.   Stamp 'LOVE' onto some green ribbon in black, (from the dove decoupage stamp set).  Tie the ribbon around the centre of the tag and colour with some red mica powder.   Thread ribbon through the hole in the top of the tag.

Cut out and emboss the Memory Box corner die and cover with Versamark and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.   Glue this to the tag.   Punch out a flower and colour with mica powder, then rub some Versamark on the edges of the petals and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.

Make a black centre, using the Martha Stewart cornflower punch and glue to the centre of the flower.   Glue some tiny gold seed beads in the flower centre.   Glue the flower to the bottom right of the tag.

Stamp the butterflies onto acetate with Versamark and heat emboss with gold powder.   Cover the backs of the butterflies with the Diamond Sparkle Medium and when dry, glue them to the top left of the tag.

Well that's all from me for today, I do hope you all have a relaxing Sunday, catch you all again soon.
