Make and Take Tag 30 July
Hi and thanks for coming to visit my shop - hope you all had a great day :-)
Below is one example of a finished tag using Screaming Banshee Black (ya gotta love those names lol) magicals.
In your package you will have
- a tag
- ribbon (white or apricot)
- a piece of black cardstock
- 2 flowers
- 2 leaves
- a sentiment
- and a packet with a small amount of Lindy's Stamp Gang magicals
You will also need:
- a heat tool
- some embossing powder
- Versamark or another stamp pad
- a mister
- a paint brush
- non stick craft mat
1. Firstly, lay out your tag, ribbon (if it's white), flowers and magicals powder on your craft mat.
2. Spray about a teaspoon of water into your magicals bag and watch the colour come to life. This is about 10 sprays with a Ranger Mister.
3. Spray the ribbon, tag and flowers until wet but not soaking. You'll notice that the water pools on the tag. This is because we use a mixed media cardstock from Bazzill. Watercolour paper works just as well for this technique. Water and sprays soak straight into most cardstock, making it impossible to get this watercolour effect.
4. Use a paint brush to dip into your magicals and then dip into the puddle of water on your tag. Then let the colour move around. Dry with your heat tool when you are happy with the amount of colour. Don't remove the puddle with paper towel as this also removes the colour and shimmer.
5. Pick up some more magicals with you paint brush and touch to your wet flowers. Now let the colour wick through the petals. Dry. They can be re-wet to add more colour.
6. When finished colouring your tag and flowers, place your ribbon into the bag with your magicals. When it has soaked up all the colour, take it out of the bag and dry with a heat tool.
7. Next, we are going to dry and heat emboss the piece of black cardstock. I used 3 techniques on my tags. The only difference is where and when you use the ink pad.
- The first effect is like on the tag above (embossing powder in the recess - apply ink to the raised side on the embossing folder, emboss the card and then sprinkle with embossing powder and heat),
- Second is the opposite of this (embossing on the flat area - apply ink to the recessed side on the embossing folder, emboss the card and then sprinkle with embossing powder and heat) and
- thirdly (embossing on the raised area - emboss the cardstock, then rub the ink pad over the raised design on the cardstock, then sprinkle with embossing powder and heat).
The photos below demonstrate the first technique.
Here I am rubbing the raised side of the embossing folder with ink.
I then add the cardstock and emboss in a Bigshot or Cuttlebug machine.
Then sprinkled with embossing powder and tap off any excess. You can also use a fine brush to remove any embossing powder in areas it shouldn't be.
Heat to set the embossing powder.
8. Finally, assemble your tag.
