I sure used a lot of supplies for such a small tag! I really enjoy it when I can use a lot of different stuff from a lot of different companies to complete my final project. Makes me feel like I’ve made good use of my stash!
I started out with a plain, manila tag and brushed it with Distress Paints. I then applied Ferro through the stencil for the damask layer. Ferro is thick and has some metallic properties. Its consistency really stands up to a detailed stencil, which you might not expect. I then tore strips from the corrugated cardboard, which had come from the sleeve on my coffee cup! I distressed it with ink before adhering with gel medium. I then added the rose that I had colored on watercolor paper and smoothed out with a baby wipe. I cut the leaves from a scrap from a Gelli Plate print. I distressed the remainder of the elements with walnut stain ink and tied up the tag with the ribbon. I created this for the August Tag Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo.
For a closer look, here’s a detail shot:
