A Tattered Angels Tag

Tags are one of my favorite projects to create.  They can be used as gift tags for packages and even bookmarks.

I love using embossing powder as a resist.  You can mist, paint and blend, then wipe off the excess for a lovely look.  The embossing powder resists the paints and will still show up beautifully.

I adore this Shabby Music Background Stamp by JustRite Stamps.  I inked the stamp with watermark ink and stamped onto the manilla oversized shipping tag.  I sprinkled copper embossing powder and gently tapped the excess powder off, then heated it with my heat gun.  I allowed it to cool, then began playing with my Tattered Angels Paints. 

I love to blend darker shades on the bottom and work my way to lighter colors on the top of the tag.   I began with Plain Jane Simply Sheer Teal.  I swear this is one of my favorite colors right now.  I could swim in it!  Then I painted Caspian Sea Glimmer Glam onto the center of the tag and wiped off the excess to let the copper embossed musical notes show through.  I die cut Jewel Flowers and Flourishes out of cream card stock and used the die template as a stencil to apply teal fluid chalk ink.  I painted Chandelier Glimmer Glam on each flower and curled the petals to create dimension.

I painted Caspian Sea Glimmer Glam onto the ribbon.  I love how the glitter shimmers.  I painted the top of the tag with Aloha Green Glimmer Glaze and misted the corner with Sun Sisters Glimmer Mist.  The copper musical notes look vintage and aged.

I hope you enjoyed learning how I created my Tattered Angels Tag!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
