art - tag

Happy Sunday everyone!!! There is a birthday challenge going on at Dusty Attic right now. You have to use one or more of the DT tutorials for your project. On this tag I used 3 tutorials from DA.

First I used 2 LaBlanche stamps and stamped on the images. I heat embossed the writing one. I used Distress inks to color in the flower stamp and added some glossy accents to the flowers for dimension. The border chippy is first painted white then I used smooch paints on it and glossy accents. I finished it off with some gems. The title piece is just painted white then inked and I added some stickles to it.


The chippy flowers are first soaked in water than peeled apart. I used a heat gun to roll the petals and set them. I then painted and misted them and put them together with a glue gun and added a gem to the centers. The leaves are painted white then I used some glimmer glaze on them. After they dried I added some gesso to them.


Well I have not made too many tags before but I can say that I LOVE this one. Now what do I do with it? Either I will give it away or add it to a layout, lol

Ok well that is it for today....Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
