Prepare your tag by cutting out several tag shapes to the size you want and make each tag slightly smaller than the one before. I used one of the ‘2011’ labels in the Prima Printery paper pad but you could easily use a sentiment stamp or other cut-out. Also cut a small strip the width of the tag.
Stamp out the music in Versamark ink on your top tag layer, the smallest tag, and add the embossing powder, shake off excess and heat to melt the powder.
Distress the edges of all of the tag layers, sentiment and paper strip, I use a seam ripper for this job.
Now all your layers are distressed start building up the tag by glueing each of the tag
layers in place. Add the gold acrylic paint to the distressed edges of all the papers using a sponge. I used some Cut n’ Dry but you can easily use a make-up sponge for example.
Add the acrylic paint in lumpy blobs and smooth some of the blobs out to lightly add sparkle to the paper. Leave some of the blobs to dry to give a more bumpy opulent gold look to the tag. When the paint is dry tie the ribbon into a bow and the ribbon to the paper strip and stick it to the tag.
Stamp and cut out the ‘Christmas’ to stick to the ‘2011’ cut-out and add a light touch of acrylic paint to the edges. Stick the sentiment to the tag.
Colour Angel Kaylee and add sparkle to her wings, hair and shoes with the ZIG Wink Of Stella pen and stick her to the tag to finish.
Hope you enjoyed this opulent little tag.
Thanks for having me and enjoy the rest of Kristy’s birthday celebrations!
