'Red Roses for Love,' Tag.

Hi there Everyone,

Happy Valentine's Day to you all.   Sue from Imagination Craft's has set me a challenge -  to make tags, using all of their stencils !!!    no pressure then lol!   they have a huge amount  lol!  so this could take me a few years ha! ha!   watch this space lol!     I thought this tag was quite appropriate for Valentine's Day.   I have used two stencils for this tag, The 'Rose Duo' panel stencil and the 'Big Cat' stencil and  Sparkle mediums.   The stamps I used were given free with craft magazines, as was the heart die.

Cut a tag shape from white card and put into an embossing machine along with the 'Big Cat' stencil and emboss.

Keeping the stencil on the tag, dab some black ink through the design using a piece of cut 'n' dry foam.   Cut out a slightly larger tag from red card and put this aside for the moment.

Lay the 'Rose Duo 'stencil onto the embossed tag and spread the Bright Red and the Antique bronze Sparkle Mediums  over the roses.   Spread the Sage green  and the Antique bronze over the stems and leaves.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.   Glue this to the larger red tag.

Take some white card and lay the rose stencil onto it and spread the Sparkle Mediums over the design, as you did previously, remove stencil and leave the image to dry.

Cut out the two rose heads and three of the leaves, leaving  a tiny border of white around them.   Glue these to the original design on the embossed tag, using silicone glue.

Die-cut one large and one small heart from red card.   Stamp the swirly pattern onto the small heart, using a black ink pad and the 'I love you' onto the larger heart.   Matt these onto white card and trim around the edges leaving  tiny white borders.   Glue these to the tag using sticky foam pads and glue a red gemstone to the large heart.

Glue a strip of black card across the top of the tag and glue some white lace over the top of the black strip.   Add an organza  ribbon bow through the hole in the top of the tag.

Glue a small red triangle of red card at the top edges of the white tag.    Make a stand and glue to the back of the tag, so it can be stood up.

Well, that is my tag finished, just another few hundreds to go lol!   I will get there - eventually lol!   I'll be back soon with another creation, so until then take care of yourselves.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                   Hugs    Jennifer xx.
